Each piece of writing is sized and angled to get you where you want to go.

After a thorough communication process-- terms stated in writing-- when each party is fully satisfied with the expectations and parameters of the project, the work and the fee will be posted by Elance; they will monitor and manage work flow and fee payment.
How my fee is structured depends upon deadline, amount of research required, rights, details, and my familiarity with and interest in the topic. A thorough discussion between client and writer can usually lead to an agreeable arrangement for both. If the client is new to the process of hiring a writer, I can help you understand the nature of the work, and what's typically involved to produce the outcome you desire.
