How it Works

  1. You fill in the order form.
  2. After submitting the form, I will then contact you through email to finalize the pricing with you, especially if you specify any deadlines or special requirements.
  3. I will also tell you through email the estimated time of delivery for your order.
  4. After finalizing the price with you, I will then send you a PayPal invoice.
  5. If your order is priced at least 10 USD, you will have to pay 50% of the price upfront. For orders less than 10 USD, payment may wait until after I deliver.

Testimonials

Every critical comment had a clear reasoning as to why a certain wording or expression might not work from a reader’s point of view, and she made sure to include positive and encouraging comments too when she thought a certain sentence or paragraph was really well written.

Emz

The attention to detail, guidance and patience really left me speechless, since I never thought I could receive so much customized feedback to my way of writing. Sincerely, I grew as a writer by listening to the suggestions and pointers provided.
