IF YOU MISSED IT...

Here's the scoop:
What I'm Accepted Edit Requests For:
This flash sale is accepting requests for the following services for fiction books only.
I am unable to accept non-fiction of any genre at this time.
Terms of Service/The Editing Process For The Fiction Flash Sale
By submitting the edit request form above, you are agreeing to receive (and pay) a NON-REFUNDABLE holding fee invoice for 1 (one) beta read ($25 fee), proofread ($20 fee), or copy edit service ($20 fee).
These holding fees guarantee you a slot within the month you selected within which you can submit your file to your selected service. These holding fees are NOT the entire cost of the service. Balances on services will be invoiced as follows:
-Invoice #1: Your Non-Refundable holding fee/deposit. (This deposit WILL be counted toward your final balance)
-Invoice #2: 50% of Your Remaining Balance. (This payment is due upon submission of your file. This 50% payment--NOT including the holding fee mentioned above--is refundable UNTIL the edited file(s) is/are returned to you. Once you have been sent your edited file(s), you are no longer eligible to request a refund.
-Invoice #3: Your Remaining Balance. (This payment is due upon receipt of your edited file(s). To prevent collection activity and being banned from requesting editing services in the future, please pay this remaining balance within 72 hours of receiving your completely edited file(s).
IN THE EVENT THAT YOU DO NOT SUBMIT YOUR FILE, you forfeit the holding fee/deposit used to book your slot. I try to be as accommodating as I can. If you need to bump your read back a month, please let me know.
I reserve the right to refuse to extend any service beyond February 2024.
**TO SUBMIT MORE THAN ONE BOOK, please submit this form for each specific book you would like to request services for.**
TURNAROUND TIMES will vary depending on demand/service type. Some months will see MUCH shorter deliveries. Other months may see longer delivery times.
The following time-table is ONLY AN ESTIMATE. When you submit your file for editing, I will send a more precise ETA.
Beta Reads: ~14 days
Proofreads: ~21 days
Copy Edits: ~28 days
I try my utmost to never stretch an edit out beyond a one-month turnaround if at all possible.
**I reserve the right to refuse service for books that fall outside my area of expertise (namely non-fiction of any genre). As I mentioned earlier on this page, I do NOT edit anything but fiction at this time. If you submit a file that is obviously a memoir, textbook, self-help book, or any other form of non-fiction, I will refund your payment(s) and cancel your order at my sole discretion.**
