$.01-.02 per word
In a copy edit, I don't question each scene like I would in a developmental edit, but I go deeper than I would in a proofread to make each scene shine.
I'll give you advice on where to amp up description and where to tone it down, where you might need reaction beats, discreet synonym use, dialogue tags, and more.
The maximum cost for any combination of developmental editing, copy editing, proofreading, and mental health sensitivity review is $.02 per word.

Features of my Services
Encouragement and positivity
Any type of review will come with at least two pages of analysis of your story's existing strengths (and what opportunities they offer you). As a writer facing down revisions, it's important to what you already doing right so you don't end up sacrificing the gold with the rubble.
My rates fall within the median range put forth by the Editorial Freelancer's Association and below the median ranges found on Reedsy. The maximum cost for any combination of developmental editing, copy editing, proofreading, and mental health sensitivity review is $.02 per word.
Once we begin a conversation and decide on a rate, I will create a contract using Hello Bonsai. I ask for half of the payment upfront and half at completion, but larger projects can go by milestone. Payment options are available through my business profiles on Paypal, Cashapp, and Venmo.
Tailored to Your Goals
My editorial style is adaptable to your ideal path to publication, the audiences you wish to reach, and the emotions and effects you wish to evoke within your story. If you have a message to send out into the world, I want to make sure it's loud and clear—and positioned on a mountaintop.
Deadlines Tailored to the Project
Timelines depend on the length of the project and the intensity of the work. Start a conversation today to book a spot on my calendar!
