This Month’s Projects

After a lot of consideration and a lengthy look at my to-do list, I’ve decided to close for new work except from existing clients through July and August (I’ll still customize pre-made book covers, though). My grandfather was hospitalized in April and died in May, and the runs to the city to see him along with supporting family knocked me over three weeks behind on work. I can’t get everything done that I need to if I don’t close to new work right now. I also have a few clients with summer releases I’ll need to focus on, and it’s best if I don’t add too much more to my plate.

If we’ve worked together before, please continue booking as usual. It’s best to book about a month in advance right now as I’m swamped.

New clients can start booking for September.

For existing clients: Small projects like ebook formatting (provided your original document isn’t in bad shape) and interior print formatting (provided you want a simple layout) can be booked any time of 3-5 and 5-10 business days respectively. I cannot take any more websites until July. Cover art should be booked at least a month ahead of time right now.

Editing booking notice: I am booked through 2017. Please book in advance for 2018.

(Note: you can book at any time. But if I’m booked solid, that means I can’t start your project until I’m done others.)

For large-scale projects, please book well in advance if possible. I only have 1-2 editing slots and 1-2 website slots open a month and I won’t pencil anyone into my schedule without a down payment first. It messes with my finances to pencil someone in and then have them not deliver the project; please book only when serious.

If you want something done sooner than the turn around times I offer, you are welcome to inquire about a rush charge.

 

Current Email Queue

I’m currently behind on email because I’m really busy with work at the moment. Three business days is normal right now.

Some inquiries that come in Thursdays/Fridays might not be responded to until Monday or Tuesday. I do not check or answer email on weekends. You can usually check my blog for any major availability updates as well as my Facebook page.

I am always unavailable weekends and Canadian holidays. Inquiries from clients go directly to my “work” folder and are not seen by me until my usual office hours. Thank you for your patience!
