Commission Price Update

Hey watchers!

First of all, I'd like thank everyone that's reading my stuff. It means a LOT to me. I squee as I watch favorite and comment counts go up on new submissions. I've been known to check how a story is doing at red lights. So thank you. It means a lot to me that people are enjoying my stuff.

I've been thinking for a long time regarding my prices. Now, many people say "Your prices should be such that writing someone a story is worth your time!" Well, unlike many artists, I am blessed with a fantastic day job. If I insisted that my commissioners value my hours as much as my employer does, I'd never get another commission. But writing, regardless, is hard work, and I think I deserve to get paid at least minimum wage. At my current rates, I am falling far short of that. My new prices are as follows:

Writing:
$8 per 1,000 words
$10 No-Publish Fee

Mentorship:
$12 per hour

Mentorship is a new service I've added for two reasons: 1) There's no way I could make my "editing" service worth MY time *and* YOUR money, and 2) I have had people ask me about things like this, so I might as well put a price on it. Find out more about this service on my updated Commission Guide.

All current obligations will be met at the agreed upon rate. Pending/unpaid/unagreed upon commissions will be at the new rate.

Please feel free to comment about what an insane, worthless hack I am in the comments!

Is this actually a new price? Or did you just update your old pricing journal to match? (If so that's probably a good idea anyway).

Anyways, point is, you're still offering 5,000-word stories (and amazing ones, at that) for less thank a tank of gas. So I'm really not seeing anything to complain about here. Hope you continue to get awesome commissions from creative folks =)

My old prices were $5 per 1k, $5 no-pub fee. Updated the commission guide so there's no confusion. Removed editing as a service completely while I was at it. When "in the zone" I write at about 1,200 words per hour, so I'm essentially paying myself a wage of $9.60/hr compared to my previous wage of $6.00/hr.

Thanks for the words of support. And don't forget, the twins are always up for more adventures! Hehe

Seems totally legit. Your writing is worth the money spent on it. When I get my tax return money I'll set some aside for this.

Raised prices? The consumer in me is screaming "Noooooooo!"
Lol but I understand. I'm just greedy. |-3

Ha, sorry Talon! If it makes you feel any better, the added money does give me more incentive to craft my next works more masterfully!
