Just like every manuscript, each editing job is unique.

These price ranges are provided to give you an idea of how much your desired work will cost. If you're not sure which service level your manuscript requires, feel free to submit a sample of your work for editing, and one of our editors will help you find the right level of service.

Payments are handled via PayPal, which allows you to use a credit card or your PayPal account. We offer several payment options, which can include spreading your payments over several months, or paying everything up front. Unlike most editing services, we actually prefer the "pay as you go" approach, since this allows you to stop the editing work at any time if you feel you're not getting enough value for your money. This can also help you manage your budget.

**NOTE: All prices are listed in US dollars. Other currencies are available upon request.
