How do I proceed if I want to get a quote?

For an obligation-free quote email a sample chapter, along with a completed quote request form.

Once I have seen your manuscript I will provide you with a quote detailing the price and estimated editing time.

You can also call me on 0410 50 7137. International callers need to dial +61 410 50 7137. If you are calling from overseas you can check the current time in Sydney, Australia here.


Once we have agreed on a quote and what needs to be done you'll need to complete a request for services form. This explains exactly what work you need done. If you need help or are not sure what something means, just send me an email, I'm happy to help. Don't forget to email me the request for services form when you're finished. I'll call or email you to confirm starting times and deadlines.

If, at any stage, editing is taking longer than expected, I will inform you as soon as possible.

If I'm booked out or our timetables clash I am happy to provide names of other editors who might be of assistance. Alternatively you can visit any of the societies of editors in your state. Most societies have directories where editors advertise their services.

For independent advice on payment of editors, writers and illustrators go to the Media Entertainment & Arts Alliance (MEAA) website.
