What is Book Editing?
A professional book edit will help to lift your book to a publishable standard.
It is best employed when you feel you have done as much as you can with your book and are now ready to consider getting it ready for publication.
Our unique combined developmental and line editing will provide insanely detailed feedback that will give you all the guidance you require to eventually publish with confidence.
The edit will examine your entire manuscript in the process considering all aspects of your book, its narrative and its structure. These include issues such as readability, plot and structure, as well as line level problems such as sentence structure, grammar and punctuation. We will also assess your book's suitablity for the marketplace and even help pinpoit its genre.
When Should I Seek Book Editing?
Book editing is an in-depth, labor-intensive process, that requires a professional book editor to examine and assess every element of your book, showing what works and what needs to be changed.
It will result in a clear roadmap as to the steps that are required to lift your book to a publishable standard.
If you are in the 'first draft' stages of the writing process, then a book edit can help you to determine that you are on the right track, that your book has enough potential to make it worth carrying on and that you are not making any major mistakes.
If you are in the final stages of the writing process and are close to publication (or submission to agents/publishers) and feel your book is just about 'ready', then a book edit is the best step.
