Edit­ing Sam­ple [actual edit­ing uses MS Word’s  ‘Review’ menu]


What hap­pens with edit­ing, exactly?


  • If you or your com­pany have a doc­u­ment to be edited, please con­tact Thor May to dis­cuss it.
  • Com­mu­ni­ca­tion by e-mail works best –
  • Usu­ally I edit a small sam­ple to esti­mate the over­all time needed and likely cost to you.
  • With book or the­sis length doc­u­ments, invoic­ing is chap­ter by chap­ter.  This means that you can ask me to stop edit­ing at any time after each sec­tion.
  • Make clear who is likely to read the doc­u­ment; (good writ­ing always tar­gets a par­tic­u­lar audi­ence).


Edit­ing Charges


  • Thor May charges a rea­son­able flat hourly rate. I have found charg­ing by the hour to be the fairest sys­tem for every­one.
  • I don’t charge for a min­ute more than is nec­es­sary! The aim is to give the edi­tor a fair reward for his time, and to give you an eco­nom­i­cal ser­vice! (Note how­ever that I am NOT in the busi­ness of ghost writ­ing orig­i­nal doc­u­ments).
  • Work is done in a friendly, effi­cient man­ner, as quickly as pos­si­ble. I work to a high stan­dard.
  • You are free to with­draw from the agree­ment at any time.
