Manuscript proofreading involves working on several elements in a book draft. It addresses grammar, punctuation, spelling, sentence structure, consistency, writing style, formatting, and more. Working on a book is a long and tiring process and if you haven't edited and proofread your draft, it is difficult to garner attention from literary agents and publishers. It is crucial to work closely with a professional proofreader who addresses all the required elements of editing to polish your manuscript according to industry standards.

The cost of editing depends on the type of editing you want for your drafts, book-length, word count, deadline, and the number of revisions required. A professional editor may cost on a per-word, per hour, or a per-project basis.
For example, editing costs for a 70,000-word would be:
  • Developmental editing: $.08 per word, or $5,600 total
  • Basic copy editing: $.018 per word, or $1,260 total
  • Proofreading: $.0113, or $791 total
The editing costs are also determined by the experience, skills, and services offered by a professional editor and how long the editor has been in the industry.

Editing is a broad term and involves a lot of parts concerned with refining a manuscript. It includes developmental editing, structural editing, editorial assessment, and copyediting. All these tasks focus on macro editing of a draft and work on various structural and storytelling components to edit any loopholes in the story.

Proofreading may come under the umbrella of editing or can be considered separately as well. Where editing works on broader issues, proofreading deals with micro editing of the draft content from a grammar and language perspective, while also correcting the format of a manuscript.

Absolutely. That's exactly what we have been doing for our long-term clients who have achieved enormous success with their books. We deal with all the aspects of manuscript proofreading required in your draft and work closely with our customers to exchange feedback and suggestion between them and our editors. We address basic and complex writing errors effectively and polish every element of your manuscript. Our round-the-clock customer support provides an efficient way of communication for our clients to build trust and confidence.

We provide editing and proofreading services for the following types of manuscripts:

  • Novels and novellas
  • Short stories
  • Nonfiction books (memoirs, biographies, self-help)
  • Scripts and screenplays
  • Ebooks
  • Chapters and excerpts

Each professional editor has a specific set of skills and experiences that makes them better suited to serve particular clients and projects and there is no editor or proofreader who is better than the other. Keeping this in mind, here are a few things to consider when finding an editor for your manuscript:

  1. rs based on the genres they cover: It's important to team up with an editor who serves the particular genre you write in. Having an editor experienced in science-fiction working with your romance manuscript probably won't be a wise idea.
  2. Have a look at their professional experience: Some authors prefer to work with editors who have edited manuscripts for famous authors while others work best with editors who have had a successful experience with first-time authors.
  3. Decide the kind of critique you're willing to receive: When working with an editor, you may receive blunt and straightforward advice and you can also have a frank response from an editor. It depends on what best suits you.
  4. Ensure communication: You can choose the style of communication according to your preference. You can go for either face-to-face meetings for in-depth discussion and feedback or choose to receive weekly updates for only key points of your manuscript editing.

Not a problem. You're most welcome to contact us and send back your final draft in case you're not satisfied. We offer unlimited revisions for our valued clients to ensure they're heard and dealt with carefully. Make sure you communicate your concerns in a timely fashion and tell us what changes you want. Once we know we have edited and formatted the book according to your needs, we'll send you the revised draft. We stay with you throughout the editing process to ensure your full satisfaction.

An unprofessional editor may share the details of your project to attract new clients and breach your rights in the process. We take pride in saying that all the information and manuscripts you provide us remain strictly confidential.

We follow professional writing and publishing standards to ensure that the excerpts from your book aren’t used elsewhere without your knowledge.
