My Rates

  • My usual current rate for beta reading and copyediting is $75 NZD per 5,000 words, depending on the size and overall condition of the work.
  • For longer works (>10,000 words), I can provide a 3-page sample absolutely FREE. 
  • I offer a proofreading service for any length of work in any genre, from $10 NZD per 1,000 words.
  • Formatting and sensitivity reading rates depend on the size of the work and requirements.

Clients in New Zealand can pay me via direct bank transfer upon receipt of invoice. 

My preferred method of payment for clients outside New Zealand is PayPal. 

You can also send me tips and donations via my Ko-fi at

Please note:

For manuscripts under 10,000 words, I request payment upon delivery.
For manuscripts of 10,000 words and over, I request an upfront payment of 50% of the final fee, or $200 NZD (whichever is lower) before I start to edit.
