Rates and Turnaround



**Please note that I am no longer accepting new submissions after December 1, 2013.**

Rates for manuscript evaluations:

$.01 per word.* (Any frontmatter, backmatter, prologues, epilogues, synopses, or cover letters are included in the word count.)

For example, a 50,000-word manuscript will cost $500 for an evaluation.

Minimum charge is $100.

All payments are made via PayPal.


For re-evaluations:

Resubmission of a previously evaluated manuscript for an updated critique will cost 50% of your original rate. This rate will be applied every time a manuscript (or any itty bitty part thereof) is resubmitted for a new evaluation.


*Why I charge by the word instead of by the hour: Everyone knows the word count of their manuscript (or they should). So you'll know right up front how much my services will cost. Plus, you never have to worry that I'm taking longer than I should just to get more money.
