Payment Considerations

Don’t worry if any of these prices seem out of reach. I understand working on a budget. That’s why I offer six month financing through PayPal for those who would like the convenience of paying in installments.

I am also happy to barter with those who have unique advertising opportunities. Have a website or newsletter that gets heavy traffic from other writers? Let’s make a deal!

I also offer a referral program discount. For every Twitter follow, Facebook like or friends/family referral who purchases a service, I will credit you $5. All you have to do is let me know that you’ve followed, liked, or referred and the credit will be applied to your next project.
