Schedule: In your inquiry letter, please clearly indicate the total manuscript page and word count. (Note: a double-spaced manuscript page has roughly 250 words per page, and the total can be figured out using Microsoft Word.) Please set up the book as one long document without formatting and with page breaks for chapters, rather than lots of individual files, for ease of editing. Indicate the deadline for completion of the edit, so that I can be clear about the time frame you have in mind for the project and whether I can fit it into my schedule. For book-length projects, it works best if you contact me three to four weeks in advance, preferably longer; smaller projects require less notice, but I would really appreciate adequate notice of the work. From time to time, I have windows in my schedule, where I can accommodate a last-minute larger job, but this is the exception rather than the rule. I give my full attention to each project, and the schedule fills quickly, so setting dates and sticking to them is good for all concerned.
