Updated Editing and Formatting Services

Updated Editing and Formatting Services I’ve been working as a full-time editor for six months now (officially). In that time, I’ve gained a new appreciation for the editing process and have learned a great deal about formatting, too. I’m also an editor for Moran Publishing, and it feels amazing to finally be working with a publishing house!

With all of that in mind, I thought it might be a good idea to update the list of services I’m offering to writers. I’m also announcing some changes to some of my rates for these services.

Editing Services

I’m continuing to offer both substantive and copy editing services at the same prices previously listed on my site ($3 per page and $1.50 per page, respectively). Although the industry average for these services is higher than the cost I’ve listed, I want to do whatever I can to provide high-quality services at affordable prices.

My turnaround time is a month, and I’m booking 2-3 clients per month, so if you’re interested in editing, book me as soon as possible to secure your spot! If you’d like to get some testimonials on my work, please feel free to ask.

Formatting Services

These offerings mark the biggest change in my repertoire. When I first made my Services page, I knew next to nothing about formatting. As an indie author, formatting was the bane of my existence—as I’m sure is the case for many other writers. Through working on my own books and formatting books for some clients, I’ve learned enough to feel comfortable offering these services to you as well. Right now, I’m charging a flat rate of $50 for ebook formatting and $100 for paperback formatting.

Now, this charge will be tacked on to any editing costs, UNLESS you choose my $3 per page substantive edit option—in that case, you’ll be getting my formatting services FREE. Again, I’d like to reiterate that you only get free formatting if you choose my substantive edit package. Otherwise, you’ll pay a fee of $50 for ebook and $100 for paperback.

Now that April’s almost over, I’m already booking clients for May and June. For more information about the services I’m offering, my rates and turnaround time, references, or to secure a spot for the coming months, please contact me here ASAP!

What’s your least favorite part of the publishing process? What services, besides these, would you like to see offered next?
