TERMS & CONDITIONS:
I use PayPal for invoices and payments, and I require an $8 minimum credit. Credits do not expire and are transferrable. However, their value might change when my prices increase. For example, if you need only four panels critiqued ($2), you can cash in up to 12 more for no additional price in 2016, but when prices increase in 2017, your $6 remaining credit might cover 10 panels.
Think you might like to work with me? Fill out the form below, and I’ll contact you for a free sample edit. You won’t be added to a newsletter, and I would never give your email address to anyone.
