Should you be interested in me having another look at your manuscript following your revision to evaluate whether you have solved the problems addressed in the initial Reader Report, I'm happy to offer you a second pass for 15% off the initial rate.
I generally try to avoid rushing through a manuscript unless absolutely necessary as I like to make sure I can give a manuscript the time and attention it deserves. That's why I usually ask for 3-4 weeks for a Reader Report. A faster turnaround is possible but not guaranteed. However, if necessary, I do offer an "express service". Since such a short turnaround has an enormous impact on my entire schedule, this needs to be discussed in advance and is subject to a surcharge. (Guaranteed 2-week turnaround = +25%; guaranteed 1-week turnaround = +35%)
