Q: What do you charge for Script Doctoring?
A: Every job in this category is unique. The price will depend on what shape the script is in when you come to me.

Q: What do you charge for Ghostwriting?
A: The price will depend on what you bring to me and what genre it is. If you bring me an idea for a screenplay, novel or memoir, the price will be very different than if you come to me with an outline, or a first draft, or 300 pages of a manuscript that you need my help with.
To get a quote for ghostwriting on a screenplay, memoir or novel that is a work in progress, send me all you have written in an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org and how you want our ‘collaboration’ to work. (IE; I do all the work and you pay me for it. Or, I give you notes, you do the work and then I review it. Or, some combination of the two.) And I’ll review what you have so far, send you a quote. Payment plans can be worked out.
