Request an Estimate and Sample Edit
What I Accept and What to Submit
I get a lot of questions regarding my availability for a particular project. This section is designed to clarify what my availability looks like for the types of projects I take on and what I might need from you to prepare your estimate.
These projects make up 65-75% of my project base each month. If your project is technical, legal, corporate, nonprofit, or general digital content, send me a sample page or two. I am happy to sign a non-disclosure agreement for the courtesy of previewing the material you need edited.
Note: Legal writing services may also be available through a licensed attorney on my team. Email me to inquire.
I. Love. Tiny. Books!
If you are a tiny book author, you hold a special place in my heart! Send me your excerpt of up to 2,500 words and your absolute deadline, if you have one.
I typically accept fiction up to roughly 70K words, give or take a few thousand. I do not edit horror, erotica, LGBTQ, dark fantasy, or poetry. Please send me your synopsis and the first two chapters. If you can also send a chapter from the middle, please do.
As of summer 2020, I am no longer accepting fiction editing projects of 90K words or more. I am, however, happy to try to connect you with another editor within my network of qualified professionals, so feel welcome to email me for a referral. Note: This does not apply to my coaching clients.
I accept nonfiction projects of up to roughly 85K words or so. Please send the first three chapters. If you can also send a chapter from the middle, please do.
As of summer 2020, I am no longer accepting nonfiction copyediting projects of 120K words or more. I am, however, happy to try to connect you with another suitable editor within my network of qualified professionals, so feel welcome to reach out to me.
Note: This does not apply to my coaching clients.
How to Request an Estimate
Using the form below, supply as much detail as possible. Be sure to upload an excerpt from your material in conjunction with estimate request on the next screen.
For rush projects, you will receive my response on the same day (or, if not submitted during business hours, on the next business day). If I am able to accommodate your deadline and take on your project, I will submit an estimate at that time. If I am unavailable, I will notify you right away.
Due to extremely high demand for my services, please allow 4-5 business days for non-rush projects to receive an estimate and optional sample edit. Note my office is closed on weekends and major holidays. If you email me on Friday or a major holiday, you can expect a response within the next 1-2 business days. On rare occasions I may work on a Saturday and respond to emails, but this is no longer the norm.
If you are requesting a sample edit, please upload your excerpt on the next screen.
If you prefer to email me, send your email to editor (at) tiarosseditor.com.
Be sure to include this information with your estimate request:
- Service(s) requested
- Description of project
- Word count
- Requested deadline, if any
- How did you find me?
Please allow 4-5 business days for response.
