Before confirming which option works best for you I will assess a 1,000 word sample. If you decide not to use my services there is no charge for this. If I feel your needs may be better met elsewhere, I will tell you and there will be no charge. Payments are made using PayPal. All fees are agreed for novellas, novels, and mentoring before appraisal.
Up to 3000 words: £15 (+ £2 per extra 1000 words)
(If you are primarily a short fiction writer and require mentoring, please see below)
One-page synopsis: £10 (£5 if one of the options below is purchased)
Includes one follow up reading after revisions.
Novellas and novels
A. First 3 chapters (up to 15,000 words): £30
Recommended before choosing from the following options. If you are preparing to submit your writing to publishers or agents, consider adding a one-page synopsis appraisal.
B. Fiction over 15,000 words: £2 per 1000 words
(Deduct £30 if Option A previously purchased for the same project)
Rates will be calculated to the nearest 100 words. For instance, a 55,500 word novel will cost £100 + £10 + £1.00 = £111.00
C. WIP* mentoring: £3 per 1,000 words (minimum 10,000 words per submission)
A good choice for the first time novelist without the time to take a creative writing course, and ideal if you want feedback/advice as you write/edit your current work in progress. For more details, see HERE.
D. Short fiction mentoring: £25 for up to 3000 words (with a max of 3 drafts) plus £3.00 per extra 1000 words.
