I prefer to do a sample edit to help me determine the amount of work required. The sample edit will usually be 2-3 pages, but authors have the option of paying for a longer sample edit (10 pages max for $35). Please note that I do not do developmental editing samples. Authors interested in developmental editing may request a line editing sample.

My initial email quote will sometimes offer you a range of options for my different services. This will help you determine which of my services are a match for your budget.

Booking Editing Services

If you wish to book my services, I will draft up a letter of agreement that will include an approximate grand total and a set of terms and conditions for our working relationship. Clients are asked to make a 20% non-refundable deposit per project to book services, but manuscripts are not placed into my editing queue until both the signed letter of agreement and deposit are received.
