SAMPLE EDIT

I offer a free sample edit/proofread of around 1000 words from your manuscript so you may see the quality of my work.  This will also allow me to determine which service is right for your manuscript.

PAYMENT POLICY

Upon entering into an agreement, a deposit of 25% of the total service price is required prior to work beginning. The remaining balance is due on receipt of the completed manuscript.

PLEASE NOTE

The above pricing is designed to serve as a baseline for cost estimate purposes. Based on the sample you provide, required timeline, and specific requirements, I will be able to give you the most accurate estimate. I will strive to do my best to meet your needs.
