Additional Phone Calls

 

There will always be opportunities for more calls. Some people work best at verbalizing their ideas, and it’s a great way to move the conversation and thoughts forward.

  • Phone calls will be factored into the proposal/contract ahead of time. If there are any other phone calls the client/collaborator would like, there will be an additional fee of $50.00 for one hour, which will include notes/recordings of our discussion for the client and collaborator.

Template

Kara has a host of templates already created for clients to use such as setting & character development, outline/plot development, etc. She can give these to clients for $15.00 each.
