I will be happy to provide you with a free project quote/estimate! Please contact me for information. I do not have a set rate that I adhere to due to the fact that every text and every project is different. I do generally charge a per page rate, however, I am willing to consider other billing options, including a per entry rate or even an hourly rate.
