For partial edits (Thirty Page and Fifty Page) full payment is due at the start of the editing process.
For full manuscripts, 50% of the payment is due at the start of the editing process. The remaining 50% will be due at completion, before the final manuscript is returned.
I prefer payment via PayPal (which allows you to use a credit card or your bank account, even if you don’t have a PayPal account.) <PayPal link coming soon>
Prior to commencement of the project, both parties will sign a contract (work-for-hire agreement) ensuring both parties understand the scope of work to be performed, as well as payment terms, deadlines, and other issues such as client confidentiality.
