The Next Step

Call 310.828.8421 or click

So you've decided to take the next step.

Good. Here's what to do.

Just click to send me a note or give me a call (310.828.8421) or fill out the contact form and tell me a little bit about your project. Is it fiction or non-fiction? A love story or a mystery, a self-help book or a company history? How long is it (word count and/or page count)? Would you like me to evaluate, edit, translate or write for you? And when would you like to start working with me?

I will give you an estimate of the time and cost involved, and once we've decided to work together, I will prepare an individualized submission agreement that specifies our working relationship.¤

Then all I'll need is your manuscript and a retainer, and we're on our way. 

Each and every project is different, and therefore my services can and will be adjusted, mixed and matched to suit the specific needs of your manuscript. Please check the fee schedule below as a guideline.¤

¤If you are a company representative, let me know if your company works with established vendor rules.
