Well done! You’ve put in the hard work, created your final draft and are itching to set your best version loose upon the world. But how do you make sure it is the best version?
You come to us for a professional proofreading and/or editing service!
Proofreading: We will search out any spelling, grammar, or typographical errors, making sure that your work reads well. All you need to do is concentrate on your creativity!
Copy Editing: Sit back and relax as we edit for sentence structure, word choice, tone, and style. If you have written a book, we’ll also take a good look at your plot: does it read well and make sense, have you switched from first to third person midway, or are there any loose ends that need to be tied up? We check the dialogue and characterisation and make helpful suggestions throughout the body of your work.
We won’t rewrite your document! You have complete creative control.
We’d be delighted to offer you a quotation for our services. To help us do so, tell us the title, subject/genre, approximate word count, format (preferably Microsoft Word, 12pt TNR, 1.5 line spacing), and any preferred deadline for completion of the work. (We may ask you for a sample chapter of the project.)
Please tell us if your project has already been through any editorial processes (e.g. beta reading, professional structural editing, or professional copy-editing). For information about what these terms mean, please check our free Guidelines to Assist .
