Before I begin, I'll provide an estimate of the time necessary to complete the work.
For all projects shorter than book manuscripts, payment is due when I return the edited document to you. For books, intermediate deadlines will be arranged. I accept payment via Paypal and check. (Paypal also accepts credit cards.) If neither of these options work for you, let me know.
I'm happy to provide a sample edit of about 200 words. If you then decide to use my services, the time spent on the sample edit will be included with the total.
The turnaround times depend on the amount of work required for your project and on what else is in my queue. In general, I can return a 1-10-page document in 4 days, and a 10-25-page document in 1 week. Times for longer projects vary.
If you need a quick turnaround, let me know and I'll do my very best to accommodate you. If a rush job would require me to work significant overtime, it will incur a rush fee of an additional $10/hour (to be agreed to in advance).
I do my best to give an accurate estimate of hours and turnaround, but occasionally projects take longer than expected. If this happens, I'll keep you updated.
