I am being asked to read for structural problems and clarity
of meaning, a manuscript for a book on healing the immune system.
It is written for an educated lay person, which is why I was
chosen instead of a medical person. Almost every sentence
needs re-writing, which will come later. What I would like
advice on is what to charge for the two stages.

Stage 1 is reading for meaning and structure - it is hard going
because it is so poorly written. I am charging $15/hr at a rate
of 9 pages/hr. How reasonable is this?

Stage 3 is heavy copyediting and editing. I will average fewer
pages per hour. Don't know yet what it is worth. It is about
240 pages.

Please make any suggestions.
