My preferred rate is $60 per hour.
However, if you would like to pay by the word, nonfiction will rate from $.25-$.45 per word, depending on the length of the piece and how the information is provided. If there is research involved, the rate my increase.
Fiction will rate from $.30-$.70 per word, depending on the length of the work and additional research involved, if any.
