The word count cap is 5000.
This is a total project fee of $297. Word count and hourly fees do not apply.
The scope of work is for developmental and line editing only. Copyediting or proofreading is not included to make sure all punctuation and grammatical mistakes are corrected. What is included is the vast scope of editing elements listed on the A.R. Garrett website.
This editing is for fiction writers, and formatting will follow the Industry Standard Formatting, which is found on the A.R. Garrett website and is the industry standard for fiction manuscripts.
You agree to submit the work with spellcheck or other grammar software.
You agree to submit the work as a Word Document.
The next steps after the request form:
If the scope of work is a good fit for the editor in the turnaround time needed, a follow up email with an invoice will be the next step. If this is a giveaway, still agree to these terms but an invoice will not be attached in the follow up email. The three delivery options are applied only to Paid clients and not to giveaways.
The submission of the 1st chapter and delivery date is then agreed upon.
After submission and delivery dates are scheduled into the editor’s books, and the author is late, the delivery date will also be changed to fit the editor’s schedule.
A.R. Garrett is a U.S. based LLC, and edits will be made in American English. Since this is not a copyright or proofread, no grammatical changes will be made; just be aware that American English is the editor’s chosen format.
For additional edits, mentoring, or to review changes/new versions the author has made after the initial scope and original version, there are additional options, and we’d love the opportunity to continue to work with you.
Chats are reserved for one-on-one mentoring and are not included in this edit.
Additional research and fact-checking for the story are not included in this scope of work. It is up to the editor if she does further research for common anachronisms or plagiarism.
Payments are due upfront once invoiced. Work will not start until this step is done.
