So, this buyer comes to me, asking if I can assist them with an ebook via the inbox. I have an ebook gig that requires a 29-day turnaround. I get some rather large orders on it from time to time. However, after explaining why it could take that long ( work outside the home and it’s our busy season at the school), they proceed to order on my 15-day article rewrite gig with an 8-day turnaround that includes research and TOC and whatnot.
Why? Because they thought I could do it quicker. If you ask me if it could take me that long and I give you the answer that it’s possible, don’t circumvent the process by ordering on the short-time frame and getting an extra fast at only $5 for your large ebook. It’s not going to happen.
I am so perturbed by this - I really did not care now about doing business with this person - TRS be damned. I sent them a cancellation request, telling them I felt it best not to work with them at this point.
