What does a free consultation include and why is it important?

A free consultation is a sample of the services offered for a chosen plan. This is not only to ensure that the project fits the package desired, but also serves to indicate whether or not I am the right editor and/or coach for you. If a desired package is not the right fit for your project or I am not the best editor and/or coach for you, you will receive your money back guaranteed. 

Will I get a publishing contract after your edit and/or coaching?

I cannot guarantee that you will land a publishing contract. You will receive a developmental edit or copy editing and proofreading as outlined on this site with the intention to make your piece stronger.

Are your edits mandatory?

The edits I make are suggestions based on my knowledge of the craft. You can use what you feel works for you and adapt or ignore what doesn't.

Can I send my piece to you for a free consultation before I click the 'Buy' button?

Yes, I do accept commitment-free submissions at Along with your submission, please include your name and email address.

What happens if I'm not happy after the process is finished?

If you are not satisfied with the finished piece due to fault on my part, I would be more than happy to give you a partial or full refund. However, because this is a service rendered, each refund request will be reviewed on a situational basis.
