I will provide a short test piece or sample—not more than 1000 words or a 5-minute recording—upon request. Alternately, I may ask for a sample of your manuscript to work as a sample of my work and also as a tool for providing a more accurate estimate. If I work on a sample of your manuscript, a fee may be applied at my discretion at the rate of $10 for 500 words or computed based on the length of the sample. Word count is calculated through MS Word function. For developmental editing/reviews, no samples will be provided.
