The amount of time and cost of edit depends on several factors:
· Length of manuscript
· Quality of the writing
· Level of service (developmental, copy/line, proofread)
For example, having an edit after a first draft will take more time and cost more compared to a final copy/line edit or a proofread.
Before submitting your work to an editor, you should attempt to do a self edit and/or get editorial input from others. By submitting your most-polished draft, rather than a first draft, can save you time and money during the editing process.
Although we can offer our recommendation and suggest a level of service based on an examination of your entire manuscript, the final decision lies with the client. Therefore, if we recommend a developmental edit or a copy edit, but you only want a proofread, then a proofread is what you will receive.
