Why don't you list pricing on your website?
Because each project is unique, we have found offering a blanket pricing structure is not the most effective or equitable method for charging our customers. (Editing War and Peace is a whole different beast compared to a light-hearted memoir—with very different time commitments required.) Rest assured, our pricing is well within industry standards and always fair. 

After the free consultation and sample edit, we will provide you with a price quote that is good for one year (provided there are no substantial changes to the length of your project in the meantime.) 

Is a deposit required?
A 25% deposit is required to secure a slot. An additional 25% is due when work begins on your project. The remaining balance will be billed upon completion.  

Do you offer payment plans?
We recognize that hiring an editor is an investment. Payment plans are available on a case-by-case basis. Please note, any payment arrangements must be agreed to in advance and will be written into our contract. 

I incorporated your edits. Will you look at my new draft?
Of course! It is not uncommon for a manuscript to go through multiple rounds of editing. And, if it’s within one year of the initial round of edits, we will offer you a discount.
