how does this work?
Each editor and editing team approaches the process differently, and not all editors are a good match for all manuscripts or clients. In order to determine if Three Point is a good match for you, let's talk a little about what you can expect when working with us.
First, we require a free 1000 word sample edit for all projects prior to contracting for any service. There are two reasons for this:
1. It allows the client to see if our edits and customer service are a match for their expectations.
2. It allows us to see what level of editing the manuscript truly needs, estimate the time required for completion, and provide a fair and accurate rate from the start.
After we've completed the sample edit, we will return that file to the client with our recommendations. Once we've come to an agreement on services, rates, and scheduling, a contract and invoice will be emailed to the client. Unless additional options have been agreed to in advance, we require the contract to be signed and 50% of the invoice to be paid within 48 hours in order to reserve dates on our schedule. The remaining 50% of the invoice is due once edits are complete prior to the return of files to the client.
