Book Editing Packages

We offer authors the following book editing packages to review and/or polish your Word manuscript:

Editing Options for your Manuscript

Naturally, we recommend that you publish your book to the highest standard possible. However, we also understand that everyone has budget constraints and that you might not have funds available to undertake an in-depth edit of your manuscript.

If you’ve written a family history or personal memoir for your family members or friends only, then it’s probably unnecessary to commit to the full editing process. For these types of book publishing projects, a light editorial proofread (our The Light Makeover package) is the most cost effective option.

On the other hand, if you want your book to be available for sale and to appeal to a wide reading audience, our full editing package (our The Full Works package) is a  worthwhile investment to your long-term success as an author.

Before deciding on the type of editing service you require, you should always ask yourself the question: ‘Who is the intended audience for my book?’ Doing this will help you to decide on the overall standard you want for your published book, including the level of editing attention your manuscript requires.

All our editing package fees are based on the total word count, plus complexity (i.e. writing standard) of your manuscript. They range from 1 – 3 cents per word for copyediting and proofreading services, and 2 – 4 cents per word for structural editing services.
