Before you publish your manuscript, are you satisfied that every word is spelt correctly and that there are no grammatical errors? If you are unsure about this it is recommended that you get an unbiaised third party to read through your text to point out any errors. We can offer this service if you need it.
Unlike general editing, copy editing usually doesn't involve changing the substance of the text. Copy editing is done before proof-reading, which is the final part in the editorial journey. Typically, copy editing ensures that your manuscript has correct spelling, punctuation, grammar, terminology, semantics, and making sure that the final work adheres to your style. Copy editors are expected to ensure that the text flows and that it is logical, fair, and accurate. As a rough guide we charge £6 per 1000 words.
Proof-reading makes sure your book is completely ready for publication. It is notoriously difficult to spot your own mistakes and proof-reading is a skilled and time consuming task but vital for a professional publication. For proof-reading we charge £4 per 1000 words for fiction titles. Publications which contain a high proportion of technical language may need specialist proof reading which would incur higher charges. If you would like a price for any of these services please email us your manuscript as either a Word Doc, pdf, Quark or inDesign file.
Frequently asked questions
Protect your work
We treat all our customers’ projects with the utmost confidentiality. However, for your own piece of mind, we advise you to take a little time to ensure that your work remains your property before and after it is published. Copyright laws vary in different countries but overall they have many similarities.
Copyrights are mainly assigned when a manuscript is published. But authors need to share their manuscripts with publishers and proofreaders before it is finally made public. Since the work is still in progress, it hasn't been published, therefore it doesn't have clear copyright protection. To protect your manuscript while it is work in progress do the following.
Put a copyright symbol on your manuscript and date it.
Print it out, sign it and seal it in a good quality envelope then post it to your bank or solicitor by recorded delivery for safekeeping. Ask them to time and date its arrival. They may charge for storing it for you.
