Affordable Proofreading and Copy Editing


 The  going rate for copy editing or proofreading is $12 for 1,000 words, which is about $720.00 for a 200-page book. Most copy editors you find  on  the web charge over $ 40 an hour. For proofreading (pointing out  errors in  spelling, grammar, punctuation and spacing), I charge 50 cents  a page. For
 actual copy editing (when I go in and correct those errors)  I charge $1.00 a page.
