Submission Process

1. Requesting editing. Send me an email with the following information:

  • The genre of your project
  • What your project is about
  • The length of your project
  • What type of editing you are looking for
  • The timeline needed
  • The end goal of the project (be it submitting to agents, indie publishing, printing for family, etc.)

2. My reply. After I’ve reviewed the basics of your project, I will reply with whether or not I can provide you services, give an estimate of what those services would cost, and propose a timeline for the work to be done.

3. If you accept my bid to work with you, we will then move to discussing the contract. Your first deposit will be due upon signing and the second with the delivery of the edit.


I look forward to working with you!
