So, you want to work with me? Hooray! What now?
Step 1: Contact me with your manuscript's word count, genre, and what service you want. If you're not sure, get in touch anyway and we can figure out the best route for you. Other useful information for me is what you want out of the process. For example, if you're pursuing an agent, or planning to self-publish. Once we've agreed on a fee, I will let you know approximately when you can expect the work to be complete.
Step 2: You send me your manuscript! Word documents only, please! If you receive your document back in a different typeface from the one you sent it in, please know this is only because it was easier for me to read on the screen.
Step 3: I begin work on your manuscript. I also invoice you during the process.
Step 4: Once I've received payment, I will send you your manuscript or feedback.
How soon will you get my feedback?
That depends on what kind of editing you want and on the length of the manuscript. When you contact me, please include the kind of editing and the word count of your manuscript and I will be able to reply with a more accurate deadline, depending on my availability and the work required. For manuscript evaluations, you can generally expect feedback in about four weeks.
Can you send your manuscript in the post?
I'm afraid I'm not able to accept physical copies of manuscripts at the moment. The quickest and most reliable way is to send me a Word document by email.
If you have any questions that aren't listed here, don't hesitate to get in touch with me!
