Fees depend on the nature, complexity, and dimensions of the specific project—and on the level of required
(and desired) service.
Some initial work together—some pages, perhaps, or a chapter—can provide two benefits:
- It allows me to make a more thorough assessment of the project, and then to determine a realistic fee.
- It allows you to see what you will get in terms of editing and writing expertise, and in terms of a final product.
With this approach, neither party gets "locked in" until both have had an opportunity to get acquainted and to
establish an effective writer-editor relationship. I've never failed to reach an equitable agreement—one that both parties
feel is fair.
