You have questions. I have answers.
What kind of editing do your provide?
I offer developmental editing, content editing, copyediting, and proofreading for fiction and nonfiction books. To learn more about the different kinds of editing, read this.
Is there anything you don't edit?
I do not edit erotica (or any genre that includes graphic sex), Westerns, academic, or technical books. I also choose not to work with authors who are publishing through vanity or hybrid publishers. I don’t promote books published by vanity presses, either.
Do you guarantee your work?
Some editors guarantee a perfect manuscript, meaning no errors. Every book has errors. We are human beings and are not able to create something perfect—something without a single error. What I guarantee is a beautifully polished manuscript you can be proud to present to the world.
Do I need to sign a contract?
Yes; before we begin the project, I will send your contract via HelloSign.
How do you accept payment?
I accept payment through PayPal, but other arrangements can be made if necessary.
What about rush orders?
Rush orders are no problem. Commitment to high communication is a must during this time frame. There will be an added fee for rush orders.
What are the stipulations for hiring you to coordinate my book launch?
I do not coordinate book launches unless 1) the book has been professionally edited, 2) the book has a professional cover, 3) the book is being self-published by the author, and 4) the author has a community of some kind so we can build the launch team.
I'm brand new to the self-publishing world and will need a lot of hand-holding. Do you offer that?
Absolutely. In fact, it's kind of my thing.
Do you review/promote books?
Yes, but I am very picky and usually request an ARC from the author or publisher. I do not, under any circumstances, review or promote books that have not been professionally edited. I do not review erotica, Westerns, or academic works. I do not review or promote books that have been published by a vanity or hybrid press. If I choose to read, review, and promote a book, the review and photo will be on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Amazon, and Goodreads.
I want to schedule a consult with you, but I live overseas and there's a big time difference. Can you make this work?
Of course. I have clients in Australia, the UK, Saudi Arabia, and Ireland, to name a few. Simply change the time zone while booking your consult.
