Detailed Edit and Comprehensive Edit
Because each piece of writing is unique and is not suitable for a one-size-fits-all pricing scheme, I offer personalized quotes. Rates will vary according to the length of the project, the scope of the edit, and the turnaround time. In order for me to provide you with an accurate estimate, I need to see a representative sample of your writing and know the approximate word count of the work as a whole. Based on this criteria, I will estimate a flat fee. If you have a tighter budget, we can set a ceiling and discuss how the edit can be tailored to fit.
$200.00 for up to 5,000 words.

Once the scope, cost, and time frame have been established, an agreement outlining all the particulars is put in place. Full payment is due before I begin Manuscript Evaluations and smaller editing projects. Larger editing projects require 50% of the fee at the outset, and the balance is due before I return the preliminary edits to you.
Projects should be submitted as a Word file (DOC or DOCX) and should include a detailed synopsis. Editing work is done electronically using Word's "Track Changes" and "Comments" editing functions. This allows you to review and approve all editing suggestions and to ask questions. I will send you a document that explains the editing process along with a written tutorial on working with Word's editing features.
I prefer payment through Interac e-transfer, but I will also accept payment through Paypal. A fee of 2.9% plus $0.30 will be added to your invoice to cover the cost of using Paypal's service.
