Bring Your Own Book
If you have a complete draft of a book, however rough, I will help you get it into the best possible shape with one (or all) of the services described below.
MANUSCRIPT ASSESSMENT: I will write an easy-to-follow report (8-12 pages) that offers an analysis of the book's strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for development in terms of its content and the quality of the writing. This report will help you redraft the book yourself, or with my help.
Prices start at $500
CONTENT EDITING: At this stage, I address issues relating to the hook and theme of your book, the way the material is organized and written, and the quality/clarity of the content and its appropriateness to your target audience. Editing suggestions are made on the manuscript.
COPYEDITING: This kind of edit focuses on polishing the language, eliminating spelling and grammar errors, ensuring consistency and clarity, and highlighting (or correcting) awkward phrasing. Please note: This is NOT the same as proofreading, which is the final stage of the editing process that is carried out when the book has been formatted for publication.
- I only take nonfiction projects.
- The level of editing required and a final project fee is determined by a free 5-page sample.
- If you have a collection of writings, such as blog posts, visit the Writing section to find out how I can help you create a book.
