Book Production

Editing – pricing varies

Like a solid cover design, editing helps your book make a great first impression. Without editing, your book may not get the chance it deserves with readers.

Basic Copyedit (One round of editing = $0.025 per word)

How the Basic Copyedit works:

Your editor will complete a basic edit on your manuscript. When you receive your edited manuscript, you’ll have an opportunity to review each of the edits and deletions. You’ll then have the choice to accept or reject them.

Basic Plus (Two rounds of editing= $0.045 per word)

How the Basic Plus works:

Round I: Your editor will complete a basic edit on your manuscript. When you receive your edited manuscript, you’ll have an opportunity to review each of the edits and deletions. You’ll then have the choice to accept or reject them.

Round II: Once you have reviewed all the changes in your first round of editing, and made any necessary changes based on notes from the editor, you’ll submit your revised manuscript for a second round of editing. This is beneficial for authors because an editor will be able to see new changes input by the author before going to print.

Comprehensive Edit (One round of editing = a total of $0.05 per word)

How the Comprehensive Edit works:

Your editor will complete a line edit on your manuscript. When you receive the edited manuscript, you’ll have an opportunity to review each of the edits and deletions. You’ll then have the choice to accept or reject them.

Comprehensive Plus (Two rounds of editing = a total of $0.07 per word)

How the Comprehensive Plus works:

Publish Prep Edit (Three rounds of editing = a total of $0.10)

How the Publish Prep Edit works:

Round I: Your editor will complete a developmental edit on your manuscript. When you receive the edited manuscript, you’ll have an opportunity to review each of the edits and deletions. You’ll then have the choice to accept or reject them.

30-minute Editing Call: After you review the edited manuscript, you’ll contact your project coordinator to schedule a 30-minute editing call with the editor.

Round II: After you’ve had your telephone consultation with your editor, made all your revisions, and are satisfied with the revised draft of your manuscript, you’ll submit your revised manuscript for a second round of editing. This is beneficial for authors because an editor will be able to see new changes input by the author before going to print.

Round III: Once you review your second round of editing, you’ll submit your manuscript one final time for a new editor to complete a proofread style edit on your manuscript. This service gets you as close to traditional publishing as possible in the self-publishing industry.
