feeInitial Consultation:       Free and with no obligation

We need to identify what service you require, whether I can offer it adequately in your preferred time frame, and it is also essential to decide if we think we can work together! To help us make those decisions (and if applicable) I may ask you for a sample of your work-in-progress and you may ask me for a sample edit.
