rates for authors

My rates follow Editors Canada industry standard and take into consideration my 15+ years of experience. For my author clients, I offer rates for one-off services as well as ongoing coaching packages.

I encourage authors to contact me directly to receive a custom quote. Please include the word count of your manuscript and the type of editing you are looking for.

Your exact cost will be based on level of editing required, the quality of writing, the genre of writing, word count, and desired timeline.

Coaching packages

Need a bit of extra motivation to move your book forward? Want some 1:1 guidance on writing tips, brainstorming, and publishing advice? For clients who would like to enter a more involved relationship with me, I offer six-month and twelve-month coaching packages.

Six-month Coaching Package:

This option is best if you already have a draft of your manuscript, and you’re looking to do a deep dive edit. This differs from hiring me to conduct a structural edit because you’ll receive ongoing editing advice. We’ll work together to solidify your outline, talking through any challenges that might arise from the outline, before we tackle small sections of your manuscript each month. Your package includes one monthly 1:1 call with me, where you can ask me specific questions regarding your book, as well as various resources and worksheets pertaining to your genre and need.

Twelve-month Coaching Package:

If you haven’t yet started to write or you’re in the very early stages of writing and you’d like a coach on board, this is the option for you. We’ll work to create a detailed outline, which will guide the rest of your writing and identify challenges up front (saving you buckets of time and headache medicine later on). Once we’ve mapped out your story, we’ll work together monthly to draft the content. Following my process, after twelve months, you’ll have a draft of your book completed. Your package includes one monthly 1:1 call with me, where you can ask me specific questions, as well as various resources and worksheets pertaining to your genre and need.
