Average page counts and word counts (source: Fiction Factor)
Industry standard preferred length is 250 words per page, which means a 400 page novel would be at about 100,000 words. The average length is 300 pages or 75,000 words.

Flash Fiction: 100 - 1,000 words
Short Story: 1,000 - 7,500 words
Novelette:  7,500 - 20,000 words
Novella: 20,000 - 50,000 words
Novel: 50,000 -110,000

My Average Turn Around Times
Novels - 7 days
Novella - 4 days
Short Stories - 2 days

Exact deadlines will be given after I have looked at your book sample and word count (pages). The more work involved the longer I may need, and the easier the job the shorter the turn around time. 

I don't normally work weekends so take that into account when submitting. If I can do some work on Sat or Sun you will get your material sooner. There is no extra charge unless it is a rush.

Rush jobs: I will accept rushes for a 50% higher fee only if I know I can meet the deadline. For instance, you need a novel done in three days.

*Copy Editor: "The copy editor edits the finished (already been line edited) copy. She will go over the copy for misspellings, missing words, grammar, and other nit-picky but oh so important details. Every writer needs a copy editor. Writers never ever ever see what they leave out."

**Line editor: "the line editor looks for consistency in the actual words and structure of the book. Sometimes this job gets folded into content editing. Line editing requires the editor to look at the tiniest thing and to make queries like: She put on her hat on page 24. She put on her hat again on page 31. I didn't see her take the hat off. Do you want to add that?"
