The time needed for an edit varies from project to project, so I usually recommend a sample edit, which helps you gain a sense of my approach to your work, allows me to formulate a detailed quote and helps me understand what you hope to achieve with the edit. A sample attracts a small fee, but if we proceed with the edit, that’s deducted from the total.
It's best if I know as much as possible about a project before I provide a quote. To that end, IPEd provide a handy guide to briefing an editor.
