**Effective September 1, 2011 I will be changing my editing fees. I'm doing this because there's a big difference between the time it takes to line edit at 50k word manuscript and an 85k word manuscript (and 85k words falls under my 100k threshold!)
The price changes will be as follows:
Basic Content Editing $0.0006/word
Line & Content Editing Combo $0.001/word
Whole Manuscript Line Edit $0.002/word
The prices may look confusing. If you do the math (and I don't blame you if you don't want to), you'll notice that at 50,000 words, the prices for each remain the same. (I.e., it will still cost $30 for a Basic Content Edit for a 50,000 word MS; $50 for a combo edit for a 50,000 word MS; and $100 for a Whole MS line edit.) This change will allow me to keep my prices low so I can help out people who can't afford pricier options, while still compensating me for the time spent on longer manuscripts.
After September 1, 2011, when submitting the first 15 pages for review, please also include the word count so I can send you a quote for the full project.
Short projects and manuscripts over 100,000 words will still require special pricing. Please contact me for information.
**Projects submitted to me prior to August 31, 2011 will still receive the flat rate pricing ($30, $50, $100 for manuscripts under 100k words) even if I don't complete the editing until after September 1, 2011**
As always, please contact me if you have any questions. If you planned on sending me a project in the near future, but the project will not be ready for editing by September 1, 2011, please email me to make arrangements for you to take advantage of the flat rate pricing.

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
