The right words for the right occasion.
Hopefully, if you're here, that means you've decided you'd like to hire me.
Before we get to the nitty-gritty, ask yourself these questions:
I accept PayPal from anywhere in the world made in the major world currencies (I use Canadian dollars in my pricing, but I will take those amounts in other major currencies as well - ex. Euros, Pounds, US Dollars.)
If you are in Canada or the US, I will also take a money order in US or Canadian funds. If you are in the US, please ensure that the money order does not say "non-negotiable outside the US and its possessions". You must purchase an "International" money order.
Ready to Go?
First, you need to e-mail me to let me know:
1) What it is you would like me to do for you
2) The length and nature of the project - Is it a short story, book, self-help book, professional report? How many words/pages is it and whether you need it within a certain set of parameters?
3) The deadline for the project - When discussing deadlines please know that while every project will receive my direct attention, yours may not be the only project I'm working on.
You will also need to consider:
a) That transcription of an audio file (whether manually or digitally recorded) takes approximately 4-5 times longer than the actual recorded time (ie: 1 hour of recorded time will take approximately 4 - 5 hours to type); and,
b) That speech writing and ghostwriting may require research.
Keep these things in mind when setting your deadline and planning your budget.
IMPORTANT: I MUST have an agreement in writing (via e-mail is fine) before beginning any work. I will draft a document detailing the rate of pay, when invoices will be issued, payment expected and how to make that payment, along with any other pertinent details.
I will not start any work until this document is agreed to.
