Freelance Editing—General

$60.00 Minimum (Novella/Short Stories) 

Substantive Editing:   .0040 – .0050/per word*

Copy Editing:              .0030 – .0040/per word*

Proofread Editing:      .0025 – .0035/per word*

*This is Max Average.  Adjustments and Discounts at the Editors Discretion. We want to meet the needs of our authors and clients at the best price possible while giving the BEST quality available.

To estimate what it will cost for your edit, use this rule of thumb…assuming you use the standard conventions for manuscript format (1″ margins, 25 double-spaced lines per page, indent first paragraph five spaces and a 12 point non-proportional font like Courier, though most publishers prefer Times New Roman), then a good rule of thumb is one page equals 250 words.

Facebook Release Day Party—

  • 1 day (1-3 hours)—organize and create to fit author specifications—$ 40.00
  • If additional promotion or multiple authors involved and prizes, may add additional—$ 10.00-$15.00 per hour, depending on additional time involved.  This would be at Ala Carte’s discretion and on a per event assessment.

Book Cover Reveal—

  • 1 day—as many blogs as available/sign up—$ 40.00
  • This includes contacting bloggers, creating HTML, promo material and sending to bloggers for posting.

Blog Tours—

Blog tours will generally be a mixture of excerpts, guest posts, promo posts and as many reviews as possible, however, reviews are never guaranteed, as we cannot promise that bloggers will do a review during your blog tour. It is our hope to engage as many bloggers as possible including a review or two.

We will promote with announcements on Twitter, Facebook, and our website throughout the tour.  We will also provide buy links for your book on Amazon to each of the bloggers for posting with the post to encourage sales. Anything you provide (your book info, excerpts, character profiles, bio, trailer, etc.) will be provided to the blog sites for use in the promotion of your book.  We will provide a document with and without HTML. We cannot guarantee that every blogger will use all information, but we will encourage them to use all that we provide.

Should a blogger show interest in doing a review, we will contact you regarding providing an electronic copy via Mobi, ePub or PDF for the blogger to read and review.

Blog Tours can include but not all inclusive of—

Book Review
Author Interview
Character Interview
Giveaway
Guest Post
Author Spotlight
Featured Series

Please note that we are not responsible for a blogger missing their tour post but we will work hard to fix it or find a replacement for you.

To aid in promoting your book, we will be the contact between you and the bloggers. Our goal is to make this as easy with as little stress as possible.
