What we need from you
Every relationship prospers from the knowledge that its partners value trust. Our promise to you is that you may rely upon us to treat your work with respect and care. You can also trust us to work with you in confidence and to handle your work with discretion. We will never discuss your work or share it with another party. We know how important your dream is to you. Bringing it to reality is the goal of the partnership we want to start with you.
We ask that you, too, observe these courtesies and considerations.
We want to get to know you and your goals before the editing process starts. Sharing with us a brief description of your writing experience, as well as a synopsis of your book and one chapter will help get the conversation going. (We want you to be comfortable with us, and we ask that you take a look at the Home page of our website.)
Please advise us of the level of editing you prefer and deadlines, if any, you are required to meet. We will contact you to confirm we will accept your manuscript, and advise you the estimated cost and completion date. With your submission, we require a down payment of 40 percent of the price estimate. That amount must be paid through PayPal using our payment form located on the right side of our website.
We will notify you when the manuscript and down payment are received by us. We cannot begin editing until after the payment has been received. Please remember to keep your original copy.
We need to know, too, the double-spaced page length and word count of your manuscript in 11-point Times New Roman font in order to quote a fair price for the work you expect from us. The format in which you have created your manuscript is also helpful to us. We accept Microsoft Word, Open Office (free version of MS Word) or Google Docs. (We return your manuscript in Times New Roman font.) You must retain a copy of your original manuscript to protect your work.
To recap, here is how to submit your manuscript.
Send us an email containing a synopsis of your book and attach one chapter of it. Also, please tell us about your writing experience and what level of editing you prefer. Please use the “submit” button on our page to email the letter and attached chapter.

That’s about it.
We look forward to a successful relationship with you and your dream.
