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 and £12.50 per 1,000 words, depending on the level of work required.

Alison's Editing Service Prices

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.

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.

£8 per 1,000 words.

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

£3.50 per 1,000 words.


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.

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.
