Q: Do you offer discounts?
A: All my rates are competitive and I believe it is unfair
to charge different people different rates so not
usually no. However, at quieter times of year I do

Q: Can you explain how to send my file?
A: Contact me following the link and I will email you.
When you receive my email just attach your file as
a Word document and email it to me.

file into a .doc file or an .rtf file.

Q: Can you edit my file to meet the guidelines
of a specific journal?
A: Yes, but this is still not a guarantee that
it will be accepted.

the hours of 9am and 10pm 7 days a week and I will
try and respond to your emails as soon as I receive

Q: How do I know if I should choose
proofreading or editing?
A: Just ask, I will be happy to advise you.
Q: Can I have your phone number?
A: No, sorry. Last year I proofread 50 million words for
over 600 people so it really would not be practical
to take time out from proofreading to answer the
phone. I will always respond as comprehensively
as possible to all emails.
