Commissions

Do you have a story idea but are uncomfortable or too busy to write it yourself? Let me write it for you!

Rates

All amounts are in U.S. Dollars (USD).

Story

$0.005 per word (rounded up to the nearest 100).

For reference: one 8.5"x11" page at 12-point font is around 500 words.

Examples:

  • A 1,765-word story would be rounded up to 1,800 and be $9.00.
  • A 3,170-word story would be rounded up to 3,200 and be $16.00.
  • A 5,045-word story would be rounded up to 5,100 and be $25.50.

End Usage Fee

  • Let me also share the story on this site: FREE!
    This means you let me host a copy of the story on this site.
  • Exclusive/Private: $5.00
    This means you host it only on your site/blog or keep it for your personal use/enjoyment.
  • Commercial (Kindle/Nook/Smashwords/etc.): $10.00
    Otherwise known as "ghostwriting", you intend to claim owner's rights and earn money from selling the story itself to other people.

Turnaround Time

Time of completion will depend on several factors:

First, commissions will be completed on a "first come, first served" basis. If someone ordered a story ahead of you, then I will complete their story first before moving onto yours. I will try to give you a rough estimate when I can begin your story and how long it will take to complete.

Second, the more complete your idea is, the less time it will take me to figure out how the plot is going to flow. Trying to write a 5,000-word story with only a three-sentence description to go on takes a lot more planning time than a detailed outline with 5-6 sentences/bullet points for each chapter.

Finally, the length of your story will be a factor. Generally speaking, it will be 3-5 days per 1,000 words.

Terms

  • The minimum charge for a story of any length is $1.00 (200 words).
  • Payment will be made via PayPal or Square Cash upon completion.
  • I will not take commissions for any of the following:
    • Stories involving minors (persons under 18 years of age)
    • Stories involving real people (celebrities, politicians, your ex-wife, etc.)
    • Stories involving copyrighted characters (Marvel/DC heroes, fanfiction, etc.)
    • Stories involving malicious racism/bigotry/etc.
    • Stories involving animal cruelty
    • Stories containing graphic violence, snuff, or that would otherwise be considered "torture porn" (e.g., the Hostel, Turistas, or August Underground movie franchises)
    • Additionally, I reserve the right to decline any commission for any reason not stated above.
  • Status updates (rough drafts, etc.) will be sent in protected .PDF documents, which are viewable by Adobe Reader and related software.
  • After payment has been received, final stories will be delivered in plain text (.TXT) and Rich Text Format (.RTF), both of which can be opened in nearly every word processing or document viewing software.
