Rates and Services

So, how do I do this? Generally, I will look at your first chapter for free. This gives me an idea of what services you need. I do a thorough edit of this first chapter, including grammar, punctuation, editing for clarity, and any developmental editing. This gives you a sense of my editing style. If you’re pleased with this free edit, find my suggestions useful, and think you can work with me, then I’m all yours! All I ask is 10 percent down payment of the estimated final price to get us both started. And no worries–since many beginning writers worry about their work being stolen, I do use a contract explictly stating that the work and all royalties remain entirely yours.
