I prefer payment via a bank transfer, but I will accept PayPal payments if this is not possible. I will usually require a deposit of 25% to secure a booking. This deposit is non-refundable unless I am the one who changes or cancels the booking.


Alison's Editing Service Prices

Minimum fee £50

Read through and critique: £2 per 1,000 words plus £50 for the report.

Children's books, rewrites, ghost writing and books of fewer than 10,000 words are priced individually. Please contact me to discuss your requirements. 

Structural edit (also known as developmental or substantive edit). This involves a detailed analysis of the text in consultation with the author. We will work on character development, continuity, syntax and plot lines to take your ideas and turn them into a wonderful book.


Pricing depends on the level of work required.

Basic copy-edit (also known as line edit): advising the author of any inconsistencies, anomalies and contradictions within the text, along with occasional suggestions for improving sentence construction. I will suggest a basic copy-edit if the manuscript has undergone some self-editing by the author and is in pretty good shape.

£9 per 1,000 words.

Heavy copy-edit. I will offer a heavy copy-edit if the story and character development in a work of fiction, or the structure and content in a work of non-fiction, are good, but the sentence construction, grammar and spelling need a lot of work. 

Between £10.50 and £15 per 1,000 words, depending on the level of work required.

Proof read: checking the text for spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors. Proof reading does not include any advice on sentence construction, inconsistencies or contradictions. 

£5.50 per 1,000 words.​


Blurb writing following an edit with Alison's Editing Service: £50

Blurb writing following a separate read through of the manuscript priced individually depending on the length of the manuscript.
