Sample edit

More information about the edit of sample pages
(Updated April 2017)

The sample edit not only enables me to establish the level of editing required but also provide you with an example of my work.

There are a couple of ways for me to edit the sample text. Either you can send me the whole novel, from which I choose a random chapter, or you can send me one chapter of my choosing.

I try to return the completed sample within 3 working days of receipt. You will receive two files: an edited file showing the markup, and a clean version.

Along with the sample, I provide a quote for the whole document. Depending on the level of editing required, this may differ from the estimate given on the fee calculator and any increase will be explained. There is no obligation from you at this stage.

If you then decide to go ahead, I shall raise a proforma invoice; however, if you choose not to, please let me know, as soon as possible, so I can delete any files that you have sent me, and close your enquiry. I do ask for feedback of the sample edit.

To proceed with the sample edit, please use the Contact Me form, but write 'Sample Edit Request' in the Subject field before filling in the rest of the form. I can then respond with the appropriate instructions. Thank you.

(I do not offer a sample edit of single short stories, or anthologies where stories are written by multiple writers.)
