I charge a one-time fee of $225 for an approximately 1000(plus)- word speech. Any minor revisions you require are included in this charge.
How do I pay and when?
I am able to accept all major cards as well as PayPal. I do request payment before beginning work on your speech, simply to protect against those few who would take advantage of the reverse process.
How long will it take for me to deliver my speech?
Depending on how much information you provide, your finished speech will usually contain 1000+ words and should generally take between six and eight minutes to deliver. If you would prefer a longer or shorter speech, please let me know.
How long will it take for you to finish my speech? Do you take rush orders?
I will work to complete your order and have it sent back to you within 48 hours. I cannot always accommodate rush orders, but if you need it sooner or within a certain time frame, please still let me know, and I'll see what I can do.
How will you get my completed speech to me?
I will send your speech to the email address that you provide me on your order form (please ensure that your email address is spelled correctly/does not block my emails via firewall, etc). I will send it as a message and also as an attachment so that you may print/utilize it at your convenience. If you do not receive your speech within 48 hours, please check your spam folder. It will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I see one of your writing samples?
Yes. Click here to be taken to my Speech Examples page.
I need help with a presentation for my speech class. Can you help?
Sorry! As a matter of integrity, Heirloom Writing Services does not assist with school assignments of any kind.
I need help with a writing other than a speech. Can you help?
Most of the time, absolutely! Please send me an email here describing what you need, and I will be in touch shortly.
I've already written out my speech, but need help putting it all together and making it sound good (review and editing). Can you help with that?
Absolutely. Many of my clients already have all of their thoughts on paper and simply need me to make it "speech" worthy. Please send me an email or Contact form letting me know, and I will send you a quote.
I have dyslexia or another disability that makes it difficult to read. Can you accommodate for my speech?
Absolutely. Simple fonts, larger text size, extra spacing, and/or changing the layout of your speech can all help to make it easier for you to read. I will work with you until we get it just right for you.
It would be easier for me to speak with you over the phone. Do you take phone consultations?
Heirloom Writing Services operates entirely online; I do not take phone calls. Any inquiries or concerns can be sent in a message here or to my email address, email@example.com.
I have sent you a contact form and/or submitted my speech order and provided payment, but have not heard back from you. What's going on?
Please double-check your Spam folder. Or, rarely, it could be that you have provided an unavailable email address. When sending me a contact form or placing your order, please ensure that the email address you enter in your form is spelled correctly, is not protected by a firewall or proxy that would block any incoming emails from me, etc. In the case that any emails I send to you come back to me as "Undeliverable," I can bear no further responsibility.
(Please bear in mind too that I am a mom...if I haven't responded to you in a couple of hours, it could simply be that my kids have my attention.)
If I receive a payment from you, but do not receive your order form, I will do what we can to contact you. If I am unable to contact you, I can bear no further responsibility, and a refund will be issued.
Typical hours for email replies: Daily, 9am - 5pm
I see a typo in my returned draft, and I'm not happy about it. What's the next step?
While I strive to provide perfectly written speeches for all of my clients, I am still human. If you have read through your returned draft and have found an error, please let me know right away, and I will be more than happy to correct it for you.
If excessive edits or changes to your speech are requested, to protect my time, I may require an extra charge at my discretion.
I have placed my order and am interested in seeing what you have written so far of the draft. Can I review what you have so far?
In order to avoid disruption and distraction during the writing process, I only send drafts for review once they are completed.
Can I request a refund?
I cannot provide a refund for a completed speech. However, if you have just paid and have decided not to use Heirloom Writing Services, and in the case I have not already begun extensive work on your order, I would be happy to provide you with a full refund, no questions asked.
What are your hours of operation?
You may place your order 24/7/365*. For weekend orders and emails, for those submitted after 5pm Central, or for those submitted on holidays, please expect a response from me no later than the very next business day.
*It is rare, but sometimes due to personal time constraints, I will need to step away from business for a short time. During these times, there will be a pop-up on the website letting you know, and you will still be able to contact me with any questions or concerns you have.
