Are you an author who has done the hard work of writing a book and now want to hand the manuscript over to professional editors to edit and improve the language? Our expert editorial team offers novel editing services for writers and novelists and uniquely we use two book editors on every manuscript sent to us. We offer expert editing, careful proofreading and professional feedback to ensure your fiction and non-fiction work is polished, error-free and impactful.
Unlike other companies, we include both proofreading and editing in our editing prices.
We combine proofreading and basic editing in our novel and book editing service. The advice and experience of two editors can really help to improve your manuscript and get it ready for publishing.
Proofreading removes errors of:
-Basic grammar, spelling and punctuation.
Editing takes a deeper look at:
-Improving sentence structure by rephrasing awkward sentences
-Improving word choice, tone, flow and readability
-Where appropriate, make comments and suggestions in the margin about content, such as plot problems, weak dialogue, etc.
Another way in which we differ from other online proofreading companies is that we use two expert editors on every document that is sent to us.
We have worked with many authors to improve their work, including children’s and young adult novels.
The service includes basic manuscript critique which consists of a one page summary of some big picture issues that could be improved.
Our editors use the tracked changes feature in Microsoft Word. Comments are added to clarify sections that are unclear or flag up repetition.
We charge a flat-rate fee of £10.50 per 1,000 words for novelists for whom English is a native language. We have slightly higher rates for foreign, non-native speakers. Get in touch for a bespoke quote.
Do you have a quick turnaround time? We can tailor when we send your manuscript back to fulfil your requirements.
We offer a free 500 word sample to potential clients.
