Full edit - Content editing as noted above, plus full service editing, including but not limited to reorganization of entire manuscript, suggestions for development to address plot, character development, etc. This service involves client agreeing to a scope of work, presented for approval before I begin. Any edits or changes are presented as tracked changes, and I review the manuscript a second time after client has made any revisions to the manuscript in light of my suggestions. Fee: Per project
Each project requires a contract (agreement letter) defining the scope of the project and anticipated total fees, determined during a phone consultation prior to the agreement letter being issued.
I reserve the right to decline projects or clients for any reason.
