Request an Estimate and Sample Edit
Please note my editorial calendar is usually booked 2-4 months in advance, so I cannot often accommodate turnaround of large projects (more than 50K words) with short deadlines (under three weeks). However, I do encourage you to still check with me in the event of a cancellation or delay of another client’s project that would open a window for your work.
To request an estimate, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the form provided. Supply as much detail as possible. Be sure to upload an excerpt from your material in conjunction with estimate request on the next screen (or paste in the body of your email).
My assistant will acknowledge receipt of your estimate request within 1-2 business days.
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 4-7 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.
For novels/nonfiction, I prefer to see a section from the middle of a project, but the first 2-3 chapters are also fine.
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?
