RATES FOR EDITING SERVICE

These rates may be negotiable. Payment for first 2 hours due when text is sent for editing. Final payment due on completion of full edit. If a longer text is involved, payment arrangements will be made by writer and Dr. Selting. 

Dr Bonnie will offer examples of possible sentence, paragraph, punctuation, or other revisions in side comments. It is up to writers to incorporate editor’s suggestions and/or examples. Writers have permission from editor to use her revisions as needed. 

HOWEVER, if Writers prefer and request Dr Bonnie actually to make the changes in the text (includng “fixing” punctuation, grammar, and other mechanical issues), fees may be higher.

Editing Mechanical Issues

Usually, writers are consistent in one or two their “lower issue” (mechanical/punctuation/spelling) errors. For instance, some writers repeatedly misplace a comma—whether putting one in where it should not be, or not putting one in where it’s supposed to be. When a writer signs up for the lowest fee, I “fix” the error two or three times while commenting that this issue is repeated throughout the text. It will be up to the writer, then, to find the problem in the rest of the text.

Thus, editing fees depend on a writer’s needs and are negotiable.

Specialized Editing

Rate depends on the writing needs and issues. We will always discuss possible issues that would warrant a higher rate. Some may exist, some may not. Thus, rates are negotiable.
