Service Description

I do much of my writing and editing work in the evenings and will nearly always be able to respond to communications within 24 hours using Elance communications or email.

I am confident in my ability to deliver what I promise. I will always meet or beat my project agreement timeline. If you are not happy with my results, I will continue working until you are fully satisfied. I include a day or two extra time in my bids to allow for feedback and refinement if necessary.

I look forward to working with you!
