Hey all your professional editors out there.
I usually write or edit shorter works (commercial stuff like websites, brochures, press releases, etc.).
Which is sort of like SPRINTING.
Now I need to know what's the going rate for a LONG DISTANCE project -- editing a book?
I'll give you the parameters and you tell me what YOU would charge or think is reasonable as either a per word or per page rate.
I am far from an expert but I run a local group with quite a few published authors. I *think* about $1200-1500 for 300-400 standard pages.
I'm definitely no expert. However, that is the reason I've not even tried to pub an epic I wrote which a number of people said should published. Good epics are few and far between. I kept getting quotes from the editors I contacted (freelance) because it needs some serious woodcutting and I didn't know where to start (still don't--but going to anyway 1st of Aug) The best rate I got was 1.75 per pg (one person--rest were all $2 per pg). At 900 (closer to 1,000) pgs, I couldn't do it, but I've been being harassed by a couple of people (not friends or family) to try again to self-edit, so guess I'll see. Wouldn't it be loverly if we could all just send in manuscripts and know it would go to a good editor at a pub house, like things used to be!!

I have noticed that for the past few weeks, especially this past seven day period, that my earnings per view has dropped dramatically. On an average, for the year I have been here, even during the slump viewing times, I would earn approximately .50 per 100 page views. That is a give or...

Are you like me? You do your best hub editing immediately after hitting the publish button?I simultaneously kick myself and correct that run on sentence, cut down that overblown paragraph and fix the title. Why oh why do I wait to get really serious about editing. By the time I...

Do you track both your income from writing and how much time you put into it? If you do, do you have a minimum hourly rate that you target?
