deb, the lady who looks at my stuff (secular), I pay a flat $100 for long manuscripts (over 60K) and $50 for shorter. I have paid $50 to others for some short work also. Willie is at 120K right now, but needs heavy, heavy edit, will probably tip the scale at 100K after my rewrite. Zita is at 78K, but should be in the 80K range after rewrite.
Twin Rivers has been editted, and I paid $50 for it, but it is very short. I am going to double the length and ask the same person if she will edit it for another $50.
Still looking for a reasonable price for comprehensive edits. Editors can send me a pm for a quote.
