Why hire a freelance writer?
There is a common belief that because most of us are literate and fluent, there is no need to serve an apprenticeship if we want to become a successful wordsmith. … That’s what I thought until I tried to write my first novel. I soon learnt that a novel, like a piece of furniture, has its own set of requirements, laws of construction that have to be learnt. Just because I had read plenty of novels didn’t mean I could write one, any more than I could make a chair because I had sat on enough of them.
- Nigel Watts, "Teach Yourself Writing a Novel"
Contracts will be completed and agreed upon before any work begins. This includes final price, payment schedule, copyright ownership, and deadline. Work will not continue if payment schedule is not adhered to.
Discounts may apply to schools, not-for-profit organisations, and indie or "mom and pop" organisations.
All services require a 20% down payment, which will not be refunded if the hirer cancels the project.
I reserve the right to adjust fees if the scope of the project changes.
There may be additional costs if it is expected that additional fees will be incurred during the project (EG: travel)
I will provide two revisions for free; after that, a new agreement must be reached as per changes to scope of the project.
All opinion pieces (including reviews) will demonstrate my opinion only.
