I keep my fiction proofreading rates simple and fair:
$0.008 per word, which comes to $2 per (250-word) page.
For example, a 50,000-word novel (200 pages) costs $400.
Figure the cost of your project:
word count x $0.008 = price
How to Pay:
When you hire me for a proofreading project, I’ll email you a PayPal invoice. You can then pay securely by credit card.
You are not required to pay the total proofreading cost upfront. At the start of the project, only 40% is due. The last 60% is due upon proofreading completion (and before the files are released).
