Professional Editing Package

$0.030/word or $29 per hour

Our Professional Editing Package helps you produce a top-quality book. Our team of editors will guide you and your manuscript through the editing process. In total, you’ll receive four rounds of edits while working with three editors.

Your first editor will provide you with an editorial assessment of your novel, then do a developmental edit of your manuscript. From there, your second editor will perform a copyedit, and your third editor will do a final proofread.

Because total project time is typically long from first edit through to final proofread, we ask for half payment when work commences based on the $0.030/word rate. The remainder, which will be half or less (depending on the total hours, see our FAQ) will be paid upon work completion.

Editorial Assessment

  • Full read-through of your manuscript
  • Follow-up editorial letter with an in-depth assessment of your story
  • Broad suggestions for rewrites on a structural level, i.e. optimizing plot, characterization, scene execution, adding/removing/modifying scenes, consistent craft issues

Developmental Editing

  • Line-by-line comments with a focus on further developing your story
  • Follow-up from your rewrites, with the same editor, after your editorial letter
  • More focused suggestions for rewrites on a line-by-line level, i.e. narration and pacing, point of view

Copyediting

  • Line-by-line comments with a focus on logic, clarity, grammar, spelling, and formatting
  • Suggestions for fact checking
  • In-line changes to correct and perfect your prose on a sentence-by-sentence basis

Proofreading

  • Read-through of final, formatted manuscript with a focus on typos or outstanding errors
  • Fresh set of eyes on your manuscript following the editorial process, since this process usually introduces numerous errors from various rewriting and reordering / adding / deleting tasks inherent to revision
