Tell me a little about your book and why you wanted to write it. I will evaluate your work + recommend the level of service required to ready your manuscript for the publishing process, even if you intend to self-publish.
We will have a 30-45 minute phone conversation during which I will explain, with examples, what level of editing or proofreading service best suits your manuscript. I will ask about your intended audience, how you intend to publish + more. We'll come to an agreement on a fee + schedule.
Red + Blue Pencil will invoice you for a 50% deposit. Upon receipt of the deposit, I'll get to work.
I will use MS Word Track Changes, both for corrections + comments or suggestions. I'll send you the first half for review to ensure your satisfaction.
I'll invoice you for the balance + proceed upon receipt.
I'll complete the work + deliver it according to the agreed-upon schedule. AND, although I am primarily a copyeditor, I'll send you some line editing suggestions that address the book overall.
