I’m closed to new work until late July 2021.
At that point I can take:
- formatting (interior and ebooks)
- cover art (limited availability) and other graphics
Premade covers can be customized at any time (outside of holidays) but please allow for a week turnaround.
In general, the one thing I can squeeze in in terms of graphics is full-wrap add-ons or promos for existing clients whose ebook covers are already complete. Please allow a one-week turnaround.
2021 editing booking notice: I’m booked January through October. This includes brainstorming sessions. My next slot is November.
(If you’re an existing client whose work I’m familiar with and you’ve got something short or need a copyedit, contact me about squeezing something–sometimes I can if I know a few months in advance and I’m not overbooked.)
2022 editing booking notice: I’m booked in January, February, and May of next year.
(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 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.
Typically cover art is booked four to six weeks ahead of time, FYI
If you want something done sooner than the turn around times I project, you can inquire about a rush charge, which will vary depending on the project.
Current Email Queue
I usually answer email within one to three business days.

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!
