Services

You've written your novel, and now you need some help shaping it into the best story it can be. No worries, I've got your back. I offer a range of editorial & critique services for you.

How Does It Work?

Step 1: Request a Quote

Are you an indie author who has finished their manuscript and is looking for a way to make their story the best it can possibly be? Then you're at the right address. To work with me, the first step is to request a quote by clicking on the button at the bottom or navigating there in the menu.

For the editorial services, I will determine the estimated price based on the service you require, the word count of your manuscript, and a sample of your story. 

For the critique services, there is a flat fee. So, you won't receive a quote for this, but you will receive a booking date.

Step 2: Accept the Terms & Pay the Deposit

After I've assessed your sample and determined the estimated price, I will send you a quote, a time frame for the edit or critique, and a contract. If you agree with these terms, I will send you an invoice for the first deposit using PayPal (25% of the price). This deposit needs to be paid before the starting date.

Step 3: Receive your Edit or Critique

Once I start working, I will update you weekly on the progress. Then, at the agreed-upon delivery date, I will send you your edit or critique. Take some time to review it. After, we will set up a meeting to discuss the edit or critique, so you'll know exactly what your next steps are.
