* I request a 10-page sample of your work before a deal can be set. Please email me directly at email@example.com * Thank you.
Payment: I use PayPal (they require a transaction fee that I pass on to the author) or I will accept a check, whatever is most convenient for you. I require half of the payment up front and the remainder when the manuscript is delivered.
Turn-around time: Turn-around depends on your needs and life in general. I like to have 2 weeks since I sometimes have multiple assignments at a time, but I promise we’ll be able to work out a good return deal. If you need a manuscript returned within one week of your initial submission, there is an additional expediency fee.
I review each manuscript multiple times before returning the material to my client. I believe in being very thorough with my work.
I look forward to hearing from you and reading your work!
