Payments and Discounts
Payments: Once the perameters of the writing project are established, I will send an invoice via PayPal in US Dollars. In general, 50% of the fee is due upfront, with the other half due upon completion. On smaller projects, work will not be returned until payment has been received in full and invoices less than $250 will not be split into multiple payments. Lengthy and complex writing projects require a detailed contract and a schedule for deliverables and payments.
- Client Discounts: In the event of revisions requested on a past writing project, a 5% discount will be given.
- Rush Jobs: I do not take on rush jobs. Good work takes time.
