I require all projects to be assessed (nominal fee for my time, depending on length of document). This allows us to determine suitability of working relationship. It also assists me in knowing whether or not I choose to retain the writer as client. I may refrain from accepting a client for any reason, expressed or unexpressed.
Read through my blog or visit Amazon to read a sample chapter of my book to evaluate my personal writing and editing style. I try to be as accommodating as possible, but additional edits increase your pricing. Communication is critical.
After I receive payment for the assessment and estimate pricing for the job, you may discuss down-payment and installment options with me if needed. I expect prompt payment for services rendered. Luke 10:7b (TLB) reads, “the workman is worthy of his wages.” I am fair, but I also value my time. The minimum fee for any service is $25.
When selecting pricing, choose “local pickup” if we will be exchanging files electronically. If your document requires mailing, the flat rate fee is $2.75.
