So here’s what I can do… 

Flash fiction

800 words max. Like what I’ve done for The Story Shack. Will probably take two hours to make, more if there’s a lot of research, so it will be around £18 and you should have it within a few days.

Short Story

2,500 words max. Most of these pieces are around that length. This will take at least a week! Usually there’s a bit more research and editing involved so it will probably cost £36-ish.

Custom Length

Anything up to 5,000 words. Be prepared for a wait haha! Prices get tricky to estimate without knowing about what you’d like so get in touch and we can discuss everything.


  • I’ll send you a watermarked draft, a set of notes or a plan and if you’re happy I’ll send you the finished piece upon payment. If you don’t want spoilers, it can be 1/3 payment upon commission and 2/3 upon completion.
  • I’ll send you an invoice and you can pay using card using PayPal (you don’t need an account) or PayPal itself.
  • Please email with as many references and ideas as possible. We can work out price based on how long I think it will take for consultation, research and creation – it will be roughly £9/$15 per hour. I have a lot of work to juggle and no one likes a rushed story so even if the piece is two hours (£18/$30), sometimes it might not be ready for a week if I have lots of work on!


  • Depending on the nature of the work, I’ll ask to publish it online; as part of my portfolio, on or and/or I’ll probably also ask for a testimonial so I can do a humble brag, as they say.
  • All work belongs to me with the exception of characters I didn’t invent and you will need to ask permission to publish my work yourself.
  • All work will be digital. I’ll email your copy as a PDF.
  • Nothing too NSFW.
  • Don’t be an arsehole.


Why is it so expensive?

So I can make a living. You know, like everyone else.

I really need to know exactly how long it will take!

It all depends on what else I have going on – I will always let you know an estimate and I’ll keep you updated on the piece’s progress and if something happens to make it take longer (unexpected research needed, I get ill, etc.) I’ll let you know ASAP. If you want a piece for a special occasion, please let me know as far in advance as possible.

Will you write articles or blog posts like you do on here?

I don’t take money for blog posts, but I’ve written for several publications. If you’d like me to write for your site or paper, please contact me via my portfolio site
