I am very happy I found Michael and was pleased with his work. I needed to finalize my dissertation and it needed lots of work in a short amount of time. Michael was flexible and worked with my timeframe and my budget to get a great finished version. It was cleared through my department with no problems. Thanks so much!Mar 20, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Every manuscript or writing project is different. Sometimes editing is rather straightforward... and sometimes not. See my web site for specifics on pricing. I charge by the project, based on how long it will take. Not by the word or page. Manuscripts vary considerably and I offer various services. Some projects can continue through numerous revisions, but some can be wrapped up rather quickly. Depends on where you are in the writing process. Length is not necessarily the most determinative factor. A 100 page dissertation can take longer than proofing a 300 page novel. Contact me with details about what you have, and/or just send me something and I can review it and let you know what I can do for you, and give you a quote and timeline. Feel free to call to chat.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The editing process over the internet is rather straightforward: Word docs are exchanged through email, payment is by the project, usually through Paypal. I can also red-pencil a printed copy, the most economical approach. All manuscripts are different. Send me something to review and we can go from there, though maybe better to contact me first. I would be glad to do a sample editing.
