I welcome fiction and nonfiction in most genres and follow standards set forth in The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th Edition and Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary. I can also tackle select technical subjects and academic writing according to MLA or APA format. I am familiar with AP format as well. I am here to encourage you with a professionally trained objective eye.

Payments and Discounts

Payments: I charge a flat fee per project, which means no billing surprises. A detailed contract (see example) will be negotiated for book-length projects before the first invoice is sent. Typically, 50% is due upfront, with the other half due upon completion for manuscript edits and critiques. Work will not be returned until payment has been received in full. Ghostwriting contracts will include a schedule for deliverables and payments.

  • Deposits: A deposit is required to secure a spot on my calendar. This fee will be forfeited if the client needs to change the project starting date. If a work sample has been completed, that charge can be applied toward the upcoming project.
  • Client Discounts: In the event of revisions requested on a past writing project or when a related follow-up editing service is requested, a 5% discount will be given.

Exclusive Promotional Discounts: Subscribe to Word Bank’s email list to receive twice-monthly posts and the quarterly newsletter to take advantage of these offers as well as receive info on literary publications and writing awards and contests.
