Down Payment: $250 holds your spot in the editing lineup. (You're credited for this on your final invoice.)
Editorial Option #1: $45 per hour (one-hour minimum). After the first hour, I bill on the quarter hour ($11.25). I invoice you after the Second Look-See. Once payment is received, I release edits to your manuscript.
Editorial Option #2: $0.02 per word based on original word count at the First Look-See stage. Once payment is received, I release edits to your manuscript.
Which option should you choose? If you're certain your manuscript is clean, tight, and ready to be published, choose Option #1. If you don't like surprises, choose Option #2. Either option does require a $250 deposit payable before the First Look-See stage.
Additional Option: For an extra $250, I'll write a log line and several book blurb versions for your manuscript.
Face-to-Face Review: FREE! We can review my remarks regarding your manuscript via Zoom, Skype, or FaceTime.
Kill Fee: $250 reimburses me for holding an editing spot for you should you decide to end our fun before we finish the entire process.
