I pride myself on offering affordable, competitive pricing for all of my top-quality services. Depending on the nature of a project and its labor-intensive needs, payment is calculated on a per-hour, per-page, per-item, or flat-project basis, in keeping with the price guidelines suggested by the Editorial Freelancers Association. Most projects, typically, fall within a $50-$65 per hour price range. In-school author visits cost approximately $100, depending on how much programming is needed and the distance of the commute. I also offer libraries a special 20% discount; and, within my local area, offer a 10% discount to my fellow Western Slopes Business Association members.

At this time, I am only accepting checks or cash payment for services rendered. I negotiate a contract with each client and then process an invoice. For longer-termed projects, half of the estimated fee is expected at the outset of work, with the remainder of all owed fees being paid at the conclusion of the project. Please contact me with any questions you may have. I am always willing to give you a free price-quote as part of an initial, complimentary consultation.

Thanks for your consideration. I welcome the opportunity to discuss your needs and look forward to working with you.
