More ballparking on costs

This is an interview at Joe Konrath's blog with an editor he has used and liked in the past. She's offering services ranging from basic proofreaching to a full edit, with prices ranging from $25 to $40 an hour. The proofreader I used, who I recommend heartily, charges $25 an hour. So, again, if you want to hire someone, that's your ballpark figure. Anyone quoting far higher prices needs to be treated with extreme caution.
