The Editing Process

You have a manuscript ready for editing. Now what?

1 - Once you contact me, we will talk about your project and your needs, as well as a schedule. I will request to review your manuscript in its entirety and select an excerpt for a sample edit.

 

2 - Upon the return of the sample edit with a project quote, we will finalize the schedule and sign the service agreement. You will be responsible for paying 25% of the agreed-upon fee as a deposit.

3 - Prior to the start date, you will submit your manuscript as a Microsoft Word file (.doc or .docx). I only accept manuscripts via Word.

4 - Following our mutually agreed-upon schedule, I will edit your manuscript, making necessary corrections using Word's Track Changes tool and notes via the Comments feature.

5 - Once the service is complete, payment of the remaining balance is required, after which the edited manuscript will be returned.
