The rate charged depends on the nature of the work you require. I do not provide free samples, as some people have taken advantage of this service in the past. Please contact me if you would like me to provide a sample for a highly specific job.
Please contact me for a quote.
There is an additional charge if in-depth technical research is required.
Fiction and non-fiction book genres involve an extensive and highly creative process. With larger works it is appropriate to set up a series of paid milestones. This allows you to review the creative process and contribute your own feedback.
Due to the wide variation in levels of editing required by individual clients, I can provide a firm quote only after I have seen a sample of the work in question.
Substantive: frequently involves extensive rewriting and structural changes at the whole text and paragraph level.
Deep-line editing: line by line analysis of your text to ensure consistency of style, usage and tone, and spelling preferences.
Proof reading: correcting errors of spelling and grammar.
I am well-versed in a wide range of style manuals including APA, MLA, IEEE, and various in-house style sheets. I can ensure that your text, including in-line citations, works cited, tables and figures meets your formatting requirements.
Terms and Conditions
A deposit of fifty percent of the total fee is required before I begin work and fifty percent on completion. When milestones are required each milestone must be funded in full before work on that particular milestone can commence.
I retain complete ownership and all rights to the work until payment is received in full. You may not use the work in any shape or form until full settlement of the agreed fee.
You are entitled to two reasonable revisions; these must be requested within five days of receipt of the work. A complete rewrite is not a reasonable revision.
All fees will be quoted in US dollars. You are welcome to pay in any currency you choose but the fee will be based on the current US dollar rate.
Final payment is held in PayPal until you are satisfied with the work or until five days after receipt of the final version (whichever comes first). If you require another form of Escrow please contact me through my Elance account: https://www.elance.com/s/writeintention/
