Pricing for Editorial Work

Curious about what to expect when hiring an editor?

Understanding the industry pricing standard will help you plan ahead when investing in the production of your first (or next) book.

To help you get started, we recommend you visit the EFA (Editorial Freelancers Association) website, where you will find an informative table of standard rates for freelance editors.  

Pricing is based on each manuscript’s needs. How much work does it require? What kind of editing do you desire? How long is the piece? We will work with you as you decide what will help you make your book the best it can be. For the purpose of pricing, keep in mind that the industry dictates a firm 250 words per page regardless of actual count.
