Current next available date is: SEPTEMBER 14 2015, so your manuscript will be ready the week of OCTOBER 14th, 2015
We will read your book and mark spelling, formatting, missed words and grammar errors in margin notes on a Word document copy of your book manuscript and return this to you within one month. You will be required to provide a final draft manuscript in .doc/.docx format.* This is the price for up to 500 pages. Contact us if your book is longer.
Note: Proofreading is the process to check the quality of your book’s writing, not the storytelling. We will not comment on the content of the story with this report. See “Editorial Report”. This is the equivalent of “Level 1: Technical ” edit as outlined by SFEP Best Practices
Line Edit ($599)
We will read your book and make margin notes on character, plot and development of the book. We will provide, within one month, a 1000-word report, i.e. roughly two pages summarizing the issues and merits of the work.* This is the price for up to 500 pages. Contact us if your book is longer.
Note: Line Editing is the process to check the integrity of your creative process. If you wish to check spelling and grammar please see “Proofread”. We will not necessarily comment on proofreading issues in this report. This is the equivalent of “Level 2: Structural” edit as outlined by SFEP Best Practices
Editorial Review ($199)
An Editorial Review is a first stop for all books before they go to market. We will read your book and assess:
The SPR Editorial Report consists of a two-page report sent to you via email within one month. We will then offer you a course of action to improve your book before you place it in the bustling book market.
A proofread and line edit bought together gives you a 15% discount.
Within one month you will receive your copyedit, and have a chance to rewrite or approve changes given.
Once you return your manuscript, the proofread will commence, taking up to one month.
If you prefer to have both the copyedit and proofread completed together within one month, let us know when you make the purchase.
