For editing/proofreading:

When you decide to hire me for your project, I’ll send you a contract to sign.

You pay me 50% of the fee up front (via Paypal or mail me a check/money order), and send me the novel in .docx, .pages, or .rtf format.

[If your payment comes via check/money order, I will wait to start the edits until it has arrived.]

I complete the edits and return the file.  If you are satisfied with the work, you then pay the other 50%.

You can send me a sample of your work that’s between 1,000-1,500 words and I will proofread it/copy edit/critique it– whichever service you’re requesting– to help you decide whether you like my work well enough to hire me for the whole project.
