Giving a ballpark figure for a one-of-a-kind story is extremely difficult. One request differs so greatly from the next that it’s rare for two commissions to cost the same.
Our team of writers endeavours to keep costs as fair as possible. For that reason, our baseline cost for a Uniquely Yours commission will be priced using the $0.05 per word model (in other words, a 1,000 word story will cost $50, and so on). You’ll find that is the going rate for custom fiction assignments, and is in fact considerably lower than what many freelance writers charge for works of erotica.
We are, of course, open to some negotiation. Before we charge you a cent, the writer assigned to your project will exchange emails with you, asking
- what you have in mind as far as budget goes,
- how long and involved you’d like the story to be,
- any extra services (like cover artwork) you’re interested in,
- preferences for format (digital versus physical),
and other such questions. Through those means we believe we can discern exactly what you want, and we can let you know what we can provide within your budget, as well as letting you know what it would cost if you were to want the story to be a little bit longer.
Our writers are very open and friendly, so please don’t be shy! Drop an email to our main inbox – firstname.lastname@example.org – and one of us will respond as soon as possible to answer any questions you have and allay any of your potential fears.
We look forward to working with you!
