With a “rewrite,” I charge $50.00. I will provide up to TWO edits after the original draft is sent to you.
For a "from scratcher" blurb or a boxed set blurb, I charge $75.00. My turnaround time right now is about 21-27 BUSINESS days since I am back in school and teaching fulltime again. With a “from scratcher” blurb, I will provide up to FIVE edits after the original draft is sent to you.
**Please note: Apparently, blurbologists have come out of the woodwork since I started the BLURB BITCH BUSINESS in July of 2014. I used to be the ONLY blurbologist out there. I have not raised my prices since 2014. But now, there are more blurbologists, and it seems that they have begun to price gouge their clients. Therefore, I did raise my prices, but I have remained BELOW competitors’ price points.
If you want to “shop around,” then that is your prerogative as a free consumer, but I am confident that what I offer is well above value and expertise. Ultimately, I would even love and appreciate your feedback and input if you have already “shopped around.”
Rewrite: It is basically a punchier, snappier, polished up version of what is given to me. I will “English teacher edit” it for you.
From Scratcher: I write a blurb from an outline or “book report” that you send to me. I can also create a whole new blurb (from your existing one) with a new feel and direction from the original blurb.
I will say this: I do think my “from scratch” blurbs are better than my rewrites, because I get to use my creativity. A rewrite stifles my creativity and only allows me to use my editing, tweaking, and polishing skills.
**Please note: A 21-27-day turnaround does not include the weekends. I have three young children who are involved in EVERYTHING. You definitely WANT me to complete your blurbs when I am alone without my children vying for my attention.
Also, oftentimes, authors are looking for a RUSH JOB. If so, let me know, because I do have a “rushed pricing menu” as well. A RUSH JOB is a guaranteed 72-hour turnaround. A “rushed” rewrite is $60.00, and a “rushed” from scratch blurb is $85.00.
I am now offering the BLURB BITCH BUNDLE.
For $150.00, you will receive:
1. One from Scratch Blurb (rushed)
2. Three possible taglines (rushed)
3. One promotional poem (rushed)
**That is a savings of $65.00
If you’re looking for something “out of the box,” I do the following services as well:
query letters ($100.00)
letters to publishers/agents/editors ($100.00),
promotional poetry for teasers and advertisements ($70.00)
