Writing, Editing & Proofreading Prices


Includes Articles, Press Releases, Blogs, eBooks, and Special Reports

I provide original content – based either upon an outline you provide, or from scratch doing the research.  If you’re on a limited budget, I typically suggest that you provide a detailed outline to minimize the time it takes for you to receive the finished product (saving money).

Pricing for Writing Services

  • Any topic (except Rocket Science and a few others)
  • $0.10 cents per word ($25 minimum). For over 1000 words, ask for custom quote.

Ebooks / Special Reports

A helpful tip: If you plan to give an eBook away free (perhaps as part of a list building campaign), you’re better to stick to under 10 pages.  If you find that you’re really pushing beyond this, it may be that you’re providing more information than is needed, and forgetting the goal: to get the reader to want your services and/or buy what you’re selling.

  • $0.10 cents per word ($25 minimum). For over 1000 words, ask for custom quote.
  • $10 for original cover
  • $25 for original sales page at beginning or end of book

  • Files are returned to you are in MS Word and Acrobat PDF format
  • NOTE: If you want samples pages for your particular document, there is a flat fee of $25 (which is applied to the project cost if you hire me for the job).

General Editing

Editing of eBooks is the most common request I receive.  Yet, let’s be clear about what editing is: it is more than proofreading.  Editing involves reading the entire document for content: how it flows, how it’s organized, how well it’s explained.  It requires a writer who’s a true editor.

  • Provide source file to me can be either MS Word or Acrobat PDF.
  • Final file is returned to you as an MS Word and Acrobat PDF
