A sample edit is not compulsory but highly recommended to check our compatibility.
I charge a non-refundable fee of $25 for a sample edit. Once the payment is through, the author can expect their manuscript back within 72 hours, unless discussed otherwise.
Sample edit requirements:
Word/Google doc, whatever you’re comfortable with.
A booking process is one where you secure your spot in my schedule and sign the contract.
A deposit fee of $50 is mandatory to pay for your booking. This is counted as your booking deposit and will be waived off of the final bill. It's non-refundable in case of any cancellations or delays.
You’re requested to send the book a day earlier than your booking date because apparently, I live in the future. Timezones suck!
Full payment will be due before I send over the edited manuscript, as mentioned in the contract.
All transactions are non-refundable. Yes, I provide payment plans, but it must be discussed beforehand at the time of booking.
All invoices are processed through PayPal. Standard currency is USD.
