CONTRACTS

Upon scheduling your project, you will receive a contract via e-mail. The contract will specify the project, the payment required, and the projected dates for completion. The contract must be completed and full payment sent via Paypal before work will begin on your manuscript.

COST

Please see individual pages regarding the cost of each service. Prices are subject to change without notice. The cost for your service will be set in your contract and will not change once that contract has been submitted.

FORMAT REQUIREMENTS

All manuscripts must be submitted in Word, as a .doc file.

PAYMENT

Full payment is required before work may begin. All online payments will be made through Paypal and will include a 2% Paypal fee.

REFUNDS

Refunds (minus a service fee) are provided per conditions set forth in the contract.

SAMPLE EDITS

Do you provide sample edits?

Yes. Please see the page Sample Edits.

SCHEDULING

If I am able to accept your manuscript for editing, I will let you know as soon as possible and set up possible dates. Typical turnaround time is approximately seven days for up to 50,000 words, two weeks for up to 80,000 words, and three weeks for 80,000+ words. Why so long? Because good editing takes time and multiple passes. Rereading a 50,000-word manuscript is much easier (and shorter) than rereading 100,000 words.
