FAQs

Do you accept other forms of fiction apart from full manuscripts (i.e. excerpts or flash fiction)?
Yes. Payment is based on page count, so I’m open to editing short stories, flash fiction, excerpts, all that, provided they are within the genres below.

What genres do you edit?
All genres of Middle Grade and Young Adult fiction, though please keep cursing and sexual content to a minimum. I reserve the right to refuse projects.

How should my project be formatted?
Double Spaced, 12 pt. Times New Roman font with 1” margins.

Do I have to send my project in Microsoft Word?
No. I also accept OpenOffice and Google Docs. Email me for more information on those. :)

How do you accept payments?
Through Paypal.

How does your payment timeline work?
For Full Edit: After we’ve agreed to terms and you’ve emailed me your project, I will send an invoice for a 25% deposit of the full payment. Once payment is received, I will begin work; after completing my first read of your project, will send an invoice for 35% of the full, which must be paid within 10 business days. At the completion of the project, I will send an invoice for the final 30% to be paid within 10 business days.

For Reader’s Edit or Line Edit: After we’ve agreed to terms and you’ve emailed me your project, I will send an invoice for a 50% deposit of the full payment. Once payment is received, I will begin work; at the completion of the project, I will send an invoice for the final 50% to be paid within 10 business days.
