One of our editors will read your book and provide you with a report on it, looking at style, structure and pacing, as well as characterisation and point of view in the case of fiction, and offering advice on how to improve them where needed. They will also review any changes you make in response to this feedback.

Prices: between £10 ($12) and £15 ($19) per 1000 words[/intense_content_box] [/intense_column] [intense_column size=”4″] [intense_content_box background=”#ffffff” width=”100%” icon_stack_color=”error” border_color=”error” icon_source=”entypo” icon=”book2″ border_size=”2px” padding_top=”3px” padding_bottom=”3px” padding_left=”3px” padding_right=”3px”] [intense_button color=”error”]COPY EDITING[/intense_button]

A copy editor reads your manuscript at the detailed level, and will mark up the text (using Word’s track changes feature) for issues of style, accuracy and consistency. We’ll warn you beforehand if your manuscript isn’t ready for this stage. When you’ve responded to the corrections, we’ll review your responses and give further feedback if required.

Prices: £9 ($11) to £14 ($17) per 1000 words

We can offer two routes for print:

1. A choice of 20+ attractive templates for simpler books with up to 10 illustrations for a flat fee of £250 ($312), including a free ebook version.
2. A bespoke design, either because you need something more distinctive or because you have lots of images, tables or diagrams – prices are typically between £5 ($6) and £10 ($12) per 1000 words.[/intense_content_box] [/intense_column] [/intense_row] [intense_row] [intense_column size=”4″] [intense_content_box background=”#ffffff” width=”100%” icon_stack_color=”error” border_color=”error” icon_source=”entypo” icon=”book2″ border_size=”2px” padding_top=”3px” padding_bottom=”3px” padding_left=”3px” padding_right=”3px”] [intense_button color=”error”]EBOOK FORMATTING[/intense_button]

If you just want your ebook formatted for submission to the leading platforms such as Amazon or Barnes & Noble, we can advise on the complexities.

Prices: start at just £100 ($125) for formatting a straightforward book of up to 100,000 words and with up to 10 pictures.

Proofing happens after a book has been formatted, and consists of a careful read-through for typos and formatting errors. (If your budget or schedule is tight, we can also quote for a ‘proof edit’ which combines copy editing and proofreading in one hit.)
