Terms and Conditions

The following terms and conditions apply to all editing, writing, or other paid services provided by Floydasaurus.

Editorial Tasks

Floydasaurus, hereafter referred to as the Editor, agrees to do the following on the manuscript for the client, hereafter referred to as the Author:

  • Copyediting for grammar, usage, spelling, and punctuation.
  • Stylistic editing, such as clarifying meaning, eliminating jargon, polishing language and line-by-line editing for pacing and clarity.
  • Developmental editing: a short critique on what I feel can be improved upon at the macro-level.

This single editing pass will consist of comments added in the Author’s file via Microsoft Word or Google Docs.

These services also include a period of 1 week where the Editor will respond to Author queries about the suggested changes, edits and commentary.

Confidentiality

The Editor agrees not to reproduce, give, or show to anyone any material sent to me by the Author for editing purposes, unless the Author and Editor agree to consulting services from a third-party.

Payment

There are no more charges or fees associated with any service that is charged 100% upfront.

All invoiced services will require a 50% deposit before any work begins.

Payment Deadline and Late Fees

Payment is due within 15 calendar days after the Editor returns the manuscript with editing commentary.

Any late payment will incur a 25% fee of the remaining balance per month until receipt of total payment.

90 days after the Editor has returned the manuscript, all unpaid balances will be sent to collections unless the Author and Editor have mutually agreed to other terms

Limitations

No guarantees are made as to the salability or marketability of the edited manuscript. Nor is there a guarantee that the manuscript will be completely error-free, though all efforts will be made to make it so. All royalties and monies gained by the sale of the book will be the sole property of the Author
