Once you've had a chance to review our book editing packages in more detail below, please contact us for a free sample edit. We'll let you know how you can send us a 1000-word sample of your work, then our team of skilled, experienced editors will perform a thorough sample edit, addressing all the issues included in your chosen package. Each individual editor will bring his/her own signature style to your free edit, providing you with a range of different approaches to choose from. If you're happy with what you see, you can choose the particular editor you'd like to work with, then s/he will get to work on your full manuscript.
Regarding payment for your editing project, you'll pay a deposit of only 50% of the full project fee to get things rolling. The remaining balance won't be due until work on your manuscript is nearly complete.

This isn't your average, ordinary proofread!
Through our "Simple Battery" package, we'll perform a thorough copy editing & proofreading treatment of your manuscript, including:
The main goal of this package is to prepare your manuscript for final publication. That's why we go the extra mile to make any applicable rewriting and revision improvements. We'll also provide you with a brief summary of other issues that can be addressed to help improve your work (for example, plot and character development, story structure, etc.).
Our "Felonious Assault" package includes two separate rounds of work on your manuscript.
1st Round: We'll perform a quick, yet thorough review of your manuscript, identifying any major issues that need improvement (for example, redundancies or inaccuracies in the text, maintenance of tone and voice, general story analysis, etc.). Our comments will address the major issues in your work that can benefit from some rewriting enhancement.
2nd Round: We'll perform a comprehensive line edit of your manuscript, including all of the following:
After both these rounds of editing are completed, you'll have a cleaner, more enhanced manuscript, ready for final publication.
Through our "High Crimes & Misdemeanors" package, we'll address such major issues as plot development and inconsistencies, character improvement, story structure, and the overall presentation of your work. This is a detailed, intense level of editing that could involve significant rewriting and restructuring, but it's all designed to make your manuscript as strong as possible.
After we've completed our developmental editing treatment of your work, we'll perform a full line edit and proofread of it to enhance your manuscript further and make it ready for final publication. In other words, we'll perform all the services included in both our "Simple Battery" and "Felonious Assault" packages as well.
As an added bonus, we'll also format your manuscript for you, for both print and eBook.
Also included in each of our packages is an "Editing Mugshot":
A full, detailed report highlighting all the major issues that could use improvement. We provide this report as a complement to our editing treatment, giving you a more comprehensive picture of the specific ways your manuscript can be polished.
