When I embarked on my writing journey, I was pretty much on my own. I didn't know about writing contests, professional organizations, critique groups... it was all foreign territory. Now that I've gained experience and know my way around a manuscript, I want to help other writers when I can. That's one of the reasons I've decided to offer my services as an editor. At this point, you probably have some questions. I'll do my best to anticipate what they are and answer them :+}
What services do you offer?
My main goal is to help you make your manuscript as tight and polished as it can be. For that reason, I offer what I call the AlLee Complete Edit. I'll be looking at grammar, spelling, phrasing, flow, continuity, theme, structure... the whole deal.
How much do you charge?
Call me crazy, but I decided to keep my rates very, very low. There's a good reason for this. A lot of the writers I work with are in full-time ministry, and the others are writers who are just starting out. In both cases, there's not a lot of money available for extras. I want these folks to be able to afford an editor. With that in mind, I created the following fee structure:
- ACE - the AlLee Complete Edit - $2 per standard, double-spaced page. (A standard page is 8 1/2 X 11 with either a 12 point Times New Roman or Courier font.) Many editors charge per word, but the per-page model works best for me. For example, if your book is 300 pages long (even if some of those pages are only half full of text) the ACE will run $600. This is a one-time fee. If you'd like me to go over the same 300 page manuscript again after you polish it and make changes, then you'd pay an additional $600. And so on...
- Half of the payment is due when you send me your manuscript, the other half when I complete the edit and return it to you.
- The easiest way to pay is through Paypal. You can also pay by check.
Why yes, I do.
Sure thing. Send me an email at jallee725 [at] hotmail [dot] com. We can converse that way, or we can arrange to speak on the phone.
