How it works

It’s super easy: fill out the enquiry form, including a sample of your work; I’ll send you an estimate; if you wish to go ahead then send me the full document (normally with an AUD50 deposit via Paypal or credit card); I’ll send the document back to you with the markups; and I’ll invoice you for the balance via PayPal.

Step 1: Submit an Enquiry

Click here to submit an enquiry. You’ll need to provide:

  • your name and contact details.
  • a brief description of the kind of work it is (e.g. book, essay, thesis).
  • the total number of words in your work.
  • any particular requirements (e.g. style guide).
  • what kind of proofreading you would like (e.g. basic proofreading for spelling and grammar, and/or more intensive editing for tone and flow of argument, and/or checking biblical references).
  • a Microsoft Word or PDF file containing at least 500 words typical of the work.
  • the date by which you will provide the full manuscript to me.
  • the date by which you require the proofread manuscript to be returned to you.

Step 2: Pricing and availability

Based on your enquiry, I’ll get in touch to let you know whether I can do the proofreading within the timeframe, and if so will provide an estimated cost. I charge a flat rate of AUD40/hour.

Step 3: Engaging my services

If you’d like to proceed, you can engage my services. I normally ask for an AUD50 deposit, which you can pay via PayPal or credit card.

You will then need to send me your manuscript as a Microsoft Word or PDF file by the agreed date. I will mark up your manuscript with suggestions for changes, insertions, and deletions. I will then return your marked-up manuscript to you by the agreed date.

It is then your responsibility to update your own copy of the manuscript.

Step 4: Invoicing and payment

Along with the marked-up manuscript, I will send you an invoice with 30-day terms. The invoice can be paid via PayPal or credit card.

Note

I make every effort to ensure accuracy in my proofreading work for my clients. However, the ultimate responsibility for the work rests with the client, and I can take no responsibility and accept no liability for damages or costs caused by any errors left in the document.
