What do you charge for your writing and/or editing services?
Given the range of projects as far as scope and size, I find it is best to determine the price point of a project on an individual basis, by consulting with the potential client and determining what needs to be done, how long it will take, and how soon the project must be completed.
I encourage anyone interested in working with me to contact me directly with details about the project and the goals associated with it.
What is your turnaround time on a project?
Here, too, turnaround time will depend on the project itself and any existing deadlines. Similar to my rate, the project deadline will be determined between me and the client, based on a collaborative conversation, and candid look at what needs to be done, as well as the time needed to effectively complete it.
Where can I review your work?
Depending on the type of writing you’re interested in, please consult the pages listed as individual tabs entitled: Book Reviews, Creative Writings, and Technical Writings.
What is your preferred method of communication?
At the start, I find email the easiest way to begin an exchange, as it is not bound by time zones or daily schedules. However, once a project is underway, I am more than happy to make myself available by phone to anyone with whom I am working.
Where is your home base?
Currently, I live in New Hampshire, but travel often and have lived in many residences in the United States and abroad.
Where do you find your inspiration for your creative writing?
I believe inspiration for creative work is boundless, but often rely on my expatriate childhood, traveling, home, family, and my experiences in the classroom, as strong thematic threads holding my creative work together, however loosely.
What is the easiest way to follow you and keep in touch?
I invite you to follow me on Twitter, @Amanda_Forbes_ for daily updates, including regular updates to this site, with links to my most current work.
