A sample edit is not compulsory but highly recommended to check our compatibility. 

I charge a non-refundable fee of $25 for a sample edit. Once the payment is through, I’ll start the sample edit and try to return it to the author within 48 hours. 




Sample edit requirements:

2000 words.



Word/Google doc, whatever you’re comfortable with.




A booking process is one where you secure your spot in my schedule and sign the contract.


  •  A deposit fee of $50 is mandatory to pay for your booking. This is counted as your booking deposit and will be waived off of the final bill. In case you cancel your booking, the amount is non-refundable.

  •  The contract will have details like the author’s name, book title, word count (estimated/final), PayPal email address, agreed price, service opted, and rules pertaining to the Indian government in case of breach. You’re advised to skim through the entire document properly to avoid problems in the future.


You’re requested to send the book a day earlier than your booking date because apparently, I live in the future aka India. Timezones suck!

  • Full payment will be due before I send over the edited manuscript, as mentioned in the contract.

  • All transactions are non-refundable. Yes, I provide payment plans, but it must be discussed beforehand at the time of booking. 


  • All invoices are processed through PayPal. Standard currency is USD.


What happens if a manuscript is delayed by the author? If they fail to send it on the date of booking? What happens if a manuscript is delayed by the editor?

If they ghost the author or simply fail to communicate?


> All these concerns are discussed in the contract. Kindly refer to the PDF.
