Caitlin Cohen (caitlin_cohen) | 3 comments (Originally posted as free but have since decided to offer payment.)

A young woman quits her job as a financial advisor and goes to live with her artist aunt in Belize for 3 months so she can take a break and "learn how to be normal" but gets a little more than she bargained for. Tone is humorous/self-deprecating.

Some language concerning substance abuse but nothing too angsty.

Genre is women's fiction/contemporary/humor with a little action/adventure and romance thrown in. 81k words.

This is my first novel and it's on its 3rd draft.

Please respond with rates! Thank you!

Cimone Watson | 93 comments Hi Caitlin,

I charge $0.75/1k words for the first 80,000, and $1.00/1k words above that. So for an 81k word manuscript, it's $61.

If you are interested, please PM me or email me at

Timothy Baril | 25 comments I'm a professional editor, specializing in fiction. I'd be happy to have a look at your book.

I could do a quick beta read for $200 CAD that would offer a macro examination of plot, characters and major issues.

If you're interested in an actual substantive edit, that's much more time consuming and detailed and would cost about $800.
