The Write Lines Costs...
My standard charge for layers 1-4 is £6 or £7/1000 words. So for a 90000 word novel between £540 and £630. No VAT. That rate depends on how 'clean' the MS is (e.g. if it's hand-written, or needs a lot of rewriting, it would be higher).
If layers 5-8 are added, the rate rises to £10/1000 words, which would include a written appraisal as well as the fully edited text.
Payment: one-third agreed fee to start; another third when two-thirds of the wordcount is done; final third when edit is complete. Payments to be by bank transfer.
