Editing & Proofreading

We offer high-quality editorial services for just about any type of book, from fiction to non-fiction, self-help, children’s books, poetry books, and anything in between.

Free Sample Edit

Enter your book’s information and get a sample edit (up to 1000 words.) In the sample we will show you how we can precisely improve your manuscript. We have become selective in the manuscripts we work with, allowing us to determine which books we want to take on.

Our Editing Services

We provide the same quality standards as traditional publishers and offer independent authors a professional, thorough editorial process.

Developmental Edit + Copy Edit + Proofread 

Along with the tasks that a copy edit typically entails (indicated below), we also restructure sentences, paragraphs, and chapters as needed, and review style and consistency (e.g., how numbers are written, which abbreviations are used, etc.) to ensure uniformity throughout your text. We address any issues in organization, transitions, tone, voice, and complexity. Fiction titles are checked for plot and character inconsistencies, as well as the dialogue, pace, and clarity.

Includes three rounds of edits:
1. Developmental Edit
2. Copy Edit
3. Post-Production Proofread

Copy Edit + Proofread 

We check for all typographical errors, including spelling, grammar, punctuation, syntax, and sentence structure, through a comprehensive, line-by-line analysis. Language-usage issues are addressed, and recommendations for style and improvement of the overall flow of the text may be given. Our goal is to ensure your manuscript is ready for typesetting and layout.

Includes three rounds of edits:
1. Initial Copy Edit
2. A review of your revisions
3. Post-Production Proofread

Proofread 

Manuscript formatting entails addressing major issues with text and formatting . Errors in grammar, punctuation, vocabulary, and spelling are identified and corrected. While this review is not as comprehensive as our copy edit service,  it ensures a polished manuscript is ready for publication.

 

Includes two rounds of edits:

1. Proofread before layout and formatting
2. Post-Production Proofread

How This Works...

Once you sign up for our services, one of our publishing consultants will get in touch with you via email or phone to further discuss the next steps.

We accept all genres from fiction to nonfiction, academic, self-help to children’s books, and everything in between.

One of our editors will edit your book using Microsoft Word. The changes to the manuscript will be in red. Comments will be in a column on the right-hand side. You get the opportunity to accept or reject each change made.

It typically takes 4-5 weeks to edit a manuscript, but this is subject to change depending on the word count of your manuscript

Our editorial services are available as a la carte service or as part of one of our packages.
