- Industry standard for a manuscript page is 250 words
- The average manuscript (novel) is approximately 75,000 words
- I typically do a surface read-through to ascertain which level of editing is required. If basic or heavy copyediting is needed, then I do a minimum of 2 rounds of editing. If developmental editing is required, then there will probably be 3 or more rounds. If simple proofreading is needed, then just 1 round.
- Because I’m a one-woman business, and work on multiple projects simultaneously, in most cases, I will NOT be able to give a 24-hour turnaround. But there are exceptions, so if you’re in a rush, ask and I’ll tell you whether or not I can accommodate you. If you require a writing/editing/proofreading/layout service not listed, please ask. I’m always looking for ways to add to my writing/editing repertoire. 🙂
