Editing & Proof-Reading
Authors are often blind to their own grammatical mistakes, spelling errors and typos. Whereas literary agents and publishers notice them right away. Your computer spell-checker and grammar checker will pick up some of your mistakes, but not all of them.
Our editors and proof-readers work for all the major publishing houses including: Penguin, Bloomsbury, HarperCollins, Transworld, Hodder, Macmillan, Mills and Boon, Cambridge University Press, etc.
Proof-reading service â€“ removes spelling and punctuation mistakes.
Editing service â€“ rewriting your book in places to ensure that your writing style and sentence construction flow smoothly, in addition to correcting spelling and punctuation errors.
Most writers will use the standard proof-reading package. However, where there are substantial changes to be made, editing is recommended as the more professional option. Weâ€™re always happy to discuss your options with you.
Weâ€™ll get your manuscript back to you within 2 to 4 weeks. If youâ€™re in a hurry, we also offer a guaranteed fast-track service of 10 days or less. Please check availability first.
