Cost

Some editors offer services with descriptions that mystify people who are not in the publishing business. Line editing, light editing, heavy editing, copy editing.


At jcannonbooks, you don't get half measures or surface treatments. I'll find the grammar and technical errors, suggest remedies for gaps in context, tell you where things bog down, and point out factual flubs. It's all inclusive.


You will know what to expect before I begin.  Here is the editing fee for most manuscripts:


Novel


$850


The rate is based on a manuscript of up to 75,000 words. If your manuscript is significantly longer, my estimate will need adjustment.

 


Short story


$500


The rate is based on a manuscript of up to 30,000 words. If your work is much shorter or much longer, I will offer you an adjusted estimate.  



Nonfiction


$1,250


Based on a manuscript of up to 75,000 words. As with novels, my estimate will be higher if your work is significantly longer.  Nonfiction requires additional editing time because of the fact-checking involved, especially if you have extensive end notes or a lengthy bibliography.
