TESTIMONIALS

Brittany was fantastic to work with, prompt and direct. I really enjoyed discussing the story with her and her input was invaluable in making the project much better than it was
without her.
— Jesse Young, Comic Book Writer
 
Brittany is the best! She fact checked my essay, provided suggestions for alternate titles, cleaned up my grammar, and even helped me re-frame the piece a bit. I’m so glad I could work with her. 10/10 would do it again!
— Kate Colwell, Journalist & Blogger

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. Are you a work-for-hire independent contractor?

Yes, and this distinction is specified in the Letter of Agreement.

2. What is a Letter of Agreement (LoA)?

It's a contract that details services to be rendered, fees, and timeline of the project. Once the letter is approved and
signed, I require 50% of the fee as a deposit.

3. What if I need to add services to the LoA?

If additional services are required, an addendum can be added to the LoA.

4. What is your typical process for working with a new client?

My typical process includes a free 30-minute discussion, via video or phone, of a client's needs for each new LoA.
On the call, we create a plan of action for the project.

5. Do I have to credit you anywhere/in the comic book script?

Crediting me is always welcome, but I understand if you prefer I remain a ghost writer or editor.

6. What if my script is longer than 22 pages?

After 22 pages, a $10 flat fee is added per page.

7. What education and/or experience do you have that relates to your work?
