What do I get back from you?
Do you proof-edit query letters and synopses?
If included with a full screenplay order, you may submit your query letter &/or synopsis. Added fees may apply ($35/hr). For separate requests, there is a $35 minimum and you can just select the "special request" service option on the form.
Do you provide coverage?
Story notes are available as an add-on for a low fee, but it is not offered without proofreading. It's simply too difficult to read past & ignore typos, formatting issues, etc.
May I just submit a portion of my screenplay?
There is a $35 minimum, so you can do a test run of early pages for $35, which will be applied should you later decide to have me complete the entire script.
May I send you a hardcopy by snailmail?
Yes. As long as you want to get your script into digital format, I'll be happy to scan it and either re-key (type) it or convert it electronically into a software of your choice. The edit will be done digitally and emailed back to you.
If your goal is to receive handwritten edits, we prefer not to do that for myriad reasons, but you are welcome to inquire. Cost is $35/hr if we come to an agreement on the process.
What is a “spec”?
A screenplay written on speculation. Unless you've been hired to write your script, your screenplay is a spec. This is streamlined storytelling, devoid of technical direction, and designed to entice Hollywood to make it into a movie. It's a sales tool.
Meanwhile, even a script that you plan to produce into a movie yourself should be in spec format for your crew, talent, investors, etc. Keep it streamlined and leave the technical stuff out until the project is "green-lit" for production.
