Someone recently pointed out to me that the number of words in a document can vary significantly depending upon how much dialog a manuscript contains. In other words, the price per page rate is not always fair to either the author or the editor. I’ve given that a lot of consideration over the last few weeks, and decided to change my pricing to a per word rate. The new rate–.01 per word–works out to approximately the same as the old $2.50 per page rate. If you look around, you will see that my rates are still very cheap.
