* To help me help you, please include the type of writing (book, article, website, etc.) in your message if you’re interested in having something specific edited. And, it’s perfectly fine to inquire about editing even if a piece isn’t finished yet. * To request an estimate for a book, also include the exact word count (not an estimate) and editing-type preference if known (copyediting and/or developmental editing). When I reply I’ll ask you to send me the first several pages for review, along with a brief summary of your book if you have one. Then, if we’re mutually interested in working together, I’ll be able to furnish an estimate. * For other questions or requests, please include as much information as possible.
