$0.25/word, payable in three instalments:

  • 25% due upon completion.

Included in my fee is one round of content revisions and the cost of a professional copy editor. Fee is negotiable based on details and timeline. References available upon request.

Consulting, public speaking, workshops/classes

My standard consulting fee is $50/hour. A sliding scale or pay-what-you-can arrangement is available for nonprofit organizations or people who face barriers in accessing the publishing industry.

Fees for public speaking or hosting a workshop/class range from $100-500 for a 1-3 hour engagement, depending on topic, prep time, and curriculum design.

I am pleased to speak to book clubs, libraries, schools, and readers’ groups at low or no cost.
