Terms

I, as the author of the submitted work, have read and understand the obligations of submitting this form. I realize by submitting this form, this becomes a binding agreement.

This agreement is between Sirius Publications (Publisher/Editor) and myself (Author) regarding my manuscript.

I am submitting the manuscript under good faith, to determine an estimate of editing fees. I understand that the estimation/first hour fee of $25 is nonrefundable.

I understand that incorrect word or page counts may result in further charges upon inspection by the editor. You will be notified via email for your approval before an additional charge is made.

I understand the result of editorial services is subjective. Under no circumstance will the editors perform revisions that drastically alter the current state of the manuscript without consulting with the Author. I realize the editor will contact me via email and maintain communication in that medium. Author may opt to contact the editor via telephone after first requesting such service via email contact.

I understand I must follow the instructions as given, or the editorial service may take longer than the estimated time frame listed. I accept full responsibility for copyright laws in effect and will hold Sirius Publications and its editors harmless if a lawsuit is brought against me for copyright violation.

I acknowledge that mistakes are missed even by the well-trained eye. Although the editors strive for excellence in making the book even better than before, requesting this service does not guarantee the book will be a best seller. Editors will look for common grammar and spelling errors, correcting those as needed. The editors also look for sentence readability and will make corrections as needed. The editors may give suggestions on how to improve the book overall but will not perform a complete rewrite.

I understand payment must be made before an evaluation can be performed.

This agreement is between Sirius Publications (Publisher/Editor) and myself (Author) regarding my manuscript named above.

Under no circumstance will perform revisions that drastically alter the current state of the manuscript without consulting with the Author. I realize the editor will contact me via email and maintain communication in that medium. Author may opt to contact the editor via telephone after first requesting such service via email contact.

Author must follow the instructions as given, or the editorial service may take longer than the estimated time frame listed. Author accepts full responsibility for copyright laws in effect and will hold Sirius Publications and its editors harmless if a lawsuit is brought against Author for copyright violation.

Author acknowledges that mistakes are missed even by the well-trained eye. Although the editors strive for excellence in making the book even better than before, requesting this service does not guarantee the book will be a best seller. Editors will look for common grammar and spelling errors, correcting those as needed. The editors also look for sentence readability and will make corrections as needed. The editors may give suggestions on how to improve the book overall but will not perform a complete rewrite.

Author understands payment must be made before an evaluation can be performed.

Refund Policy: Due to the subjective nature of editorial standards, the evaluation fee is not refundable for any reason.

In extreme cases, a partial refund will be granted on a case by case basis. Manuscripts promoting hate, extreme violence, pornographic and adult material, or illegal activities forfeit the entire evaluation fee. Although it should not have to be spelled out, the reason for this no refund policy is because Sirius Publications specifically asked NOT to receive material of this nature. Additionally, any and all legal expenses incurred by Sirius Publications and associated Editors arising out of my disregard for the policy will be considered the responsibility of the person named on this contract. Therefore, Sirius Publications will use the full extent of the law to collect monies owed, if and when needed.

Notice: Incorrect word or page counts may result in further charges upon inspection by the editor. You will be notified via email for your approval before an additional charge is made.
