Here's what you can expect from me.

Yes, I do:

  • Respond quickly to your inquiries
  • Require information about you and your project to provide estimates
  • Stage projects and use workplans for more accurate estimates and efficient project management
  • Book projects in advance (and may take short-notice projects as schedule permits)
  • Require deposits from new clients (typically 50% of project value) to secure my time
  • Work with clear, signed contracts
  • Appreciate online payment--speedy payment puts you in the priority queue
  • Work by the project OR by the hour, factoring in time for calls, emails and meetings
  • Work regular business hours (weekend or rush-jobs may incur extra fees)
  • Guarantee the quality of my work and welcome your feedback

No, I don't:

  • Have a one-size-fits-all per-word or per-page rate, as editorial needs vary widely from client to client
  • Work on spec or through profit-sharing arrangements
  • Enable academic dishonesty
