Book Editing Packages

We offer self-publishing authors the following book editing packages:

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 to stick to a budget and that you might not have the funds to undertake an in-depth edit of your manuscript.

If you’ve written a family history or personal memoir which you intend to be read only by your family members or friends, it’s probably not necessary to commit to the full editing process. For these types of book publishing projects, a light editorial proofread (our The Light Makeover package) is probably the best 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?’ This will help you to decide on the final publication standard you want for your book, as well as level of editing your manuscript should undergo.

All our editing package fees are based on the total word count, plus complexity 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.
