Because there are so many pricing variables with my projects, I don't have payment buttons on my website.  

Instead I use Fresh Books, an online invoicing service, to send invoices to my clients via email or snail mail.


 When you receive your invoice, you'll have the opportunity to choose your method of payment.
Credit Card or Check.

All major credit cards are accepted and securely processed.

    
 

          


I don't watch the clock - bad habit, I know.
When I'm working on a project,
it's not about how long it takes;
it's about how the product looks, or how it reads,
or how it sounds.

 I fuss over details,
and I rework them and rework them
and rework them again 
until we both decide the project is ready.
 You know what I mean, especially if you're an artist.

 That's why I charge by the project.
You wouldn't want me to charge by the hour.

 My fees are listed below. 
 In some cases, I ask that you to contact me for a quote.

Please have your manuscript
professionally critiqued and copy edited
 
prior to sending your manuscript to me for design and formatting


Possible Additional Fees

Revisions, editing, and other changes are a normal part of book design, interior formatting and preparation for publication.

I expect to update your project in each of these areas a few times without additional fees.  

Because some changes are minor and others are major, it's difficult to tell how many times a "few times" remain within the norm.  

Please know that I want your project to look fabulous, and I am willing to work with you to get the best product possible.

However, if your project needs more than the normal amount of revisions due to changes in the manuscript, additional editing, resizing or manipulating another artists' cover, there will be an additional charge at $45.00/hr.  

There is no additional charge  for changes due to Publishista error.
