Welcome to the Word Kettle!

This is the "light" site of Affordable Manuscript Assessments. It's a good first port of call for new clients or returning clients who want just the facts. 

Below you'll see:

  • A list of what services we offer including costs.
  • Clear instructions for accessing services.
          A list of coded jobs and their status.

Happy New Year!

January 2023 Special! Ebook Dynamic Rhyming + a picture book combo (texts under 700 words) for $30.00. Just ask for the January special.
Send text to affatheeditor (AT) gmail.com between Dec 31 2022 and January 31 2023

For Jan this resource is on special for $30 which includes an edit/assessment of your rhyming picture book text. To claim the special, contact us at 
affatheeditor AT gmail.com with DYNAMIC RHYMING in the subject line. The resource is also available as a paperback, but you'd need to pay postage.


Services we offer (all prices are in AUD)

We offer manuscript assessment at the following rates. $26.00 for the first 5000 words or part thereof.  Any picture book text or short piece under 5000 words will be $26.00 unless it is longer than 600 words and is in rhyme, in which case it may be $36.00, depending on how much work I need to do to fix the scansion.

$16.00 for each 9000 words or part thereof after that. 

We offer editing at the following rates. $26.00 for the first 3000 words or part thereof (unless as above- it's a long rhyming text).

$16.00 for each 3500 words following.

Combo; assessment + editing costs the same as editing plus $16.

For more information see Here 

Proofreading  or Beta reading same cost as assessment.
