Professional Book Editing & Proofreading Services
Thank you for considering me in this exciting journey of becoming an Author.
You have worked very hard to achieve the stage you are in right now. Choosing a quality book editor is a must before you publish your work. It is very hard to know where to go, and so I completely understand how difficult this decision can be.
To make things easier, I will first explain how the process works here:
Stage 1- Submit your work for an initial evaluation.
Stage 2-Fill in and send back the application form emailed to you.
Stage 3- Review a FREE sample of your work edited by me with a price quotation.
Once an agreement has been made between us, the work begins!
Unlike many other book editors, I am happy to talk to you (voice) as we work through your book.
How much does it cost?
Instead of charging per word, I charge per page. The price for editing your work will be submitted at Stage 3 mentioned above.
Please note that you will be receiving two rounds of editing throughout this process with no extra costs.
I offer the following services:
• Substantive/Structural editing: Clarifying or reorganizing a manuscript for content and structure
• Stylistic editing: Clarifying meaning, eliminating jargon, polishing language, and other non-mechanical line-by-line editing
• Copy editing: Editing for grammar, usage, spelling, punctuation, and other mechanics of style; checking for consistency of mechanics and for internal consistency of facts; inserting head levels and approximate placement of art; editing tables, figures, and lists; notifying the designer of any unusual production requirements
• Proofreading: Checking proofs of formatted, edited material for adherence to design and for minor, mechanical errors in copy (such as spelling mistakes or small deviations from the style sheet)
