Hello! I’m Alison Shakspeare, the one who will be doing most of the work, but if you need more specific tasks (such as indexing, a scientific specialist, a great illustrator or a printer) then I’ll be happy to put you in touch with the right somebody – just ask.

how much

I generally charge an hourly rate of £30 + VAT but will negotiate fees for long-term projects.

Editing can take from 1,500 to 5,000 words per hour, depending on the quality of the grammar and the formatting. I shall be delighted to do a sample edit of a page or two to show you:

  • how I can help
  • the standard of my work
  • an accurate quote.

Design work is charged hourly, with a minimum charge of £50 + VAT.

Website work is charged for the time spent to set up the site; there is no monthly admin fee since the idea is you do as much work yourself as you can. If you want updates carried out for you then time is charged monthly for the hours spent.

Why not invest £90 in Preparing for Publication sessions to improve your knowledge of the publishing process?
