Per-page*

*Understanding our per-page pricing

Our “per page” rates are based on the average number of words per page in a fiction book, which is roughly 280. To determine your page count no matter your genre, find your total word count in the Review tab in Microsoft Word and divide that number by 280. Use the resulting number as your quantity.

Applying the Chicago Manual of Style, this level of editing looks at all aspects of the manuscript, including the writing itself and the content it presents. An editor will offer input on your manuscript for:

  • Typographical errors such as misspelling, misuse of punctuation, or wrong word usage
  • Proper grammar usage, including subject-verb agreement, sentence structure, etc.
  • Readability, flow, and clarity of language
  • Content such as character development, pacing, plot structure, or organization
  • A scheduled call with your editor to discuss the edits after you have reviewed them. It is suggested that you make a list of questions regarding the edits before you receive the call.

Additional information

Upcharges

All manuscripts may be subject to upcharges at the discretion of the Senior Editor. If a manuscript is found to have an unusually high number of errors or is not being submitted at the proper level of editing (i.e., if a manuscript submitted for Proofreading has not been previously edited or even had Spell Check run on it), then it will be assigned a higher cost. You may purchase the Editing Check service to avoid incurring this upcharge, and the cost will be applied to your subsequent editing purchase.
