Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would prefer to chat rather than email back and forth, I'll send you my phone number in a return email.
You'll then email or mail me 15 or 20 pages of your novel.
After I review your material, we'll discuss whether you would prefer (and whether you would best be served by) a manuscript critique or a full edit. See the Services page for a description of each. I'll set my fee. You will not be asked to pay more than the price I set in advance.
If you then decide to hire me, you will mail or email me your manuscript, and pay the fee with a personal check, credit card, or Pay Pal.
I'll go to work.
And when I'm done, you'll receive one or two manuscripts from me, depending on what you've hired me to do: the manuscript critique, or a manuscript critique and the edited novel. The edited novel will have incorporated Word's color-coded tracking feature which displays the text before and after my changes, and which allows you to quickly accept or reject my changes.
