Professional Book Editing
Professional big picture book editing for self-publishing writers, which will leave your book ready for publication.
Let’s face it, all writers get too close to their work. It is part of the process, but also part of the problem.
How many times have you read over your writing, convinced it was ready to go, only to have a close friend spot a glaring plot hole in what seems like seconds of reading your book?
Now imagine the horror of self-publishing only to have reviewers pick up your mistakes.
We CAN help you to avoid this pain.
Let me keep it simple. Our editors will check over your book and pinpoint those huge plot holes that, if left unattended, would trip up unwary readers. Not only will we carry out this kind of structural edit, which will help to make your book read better, but we will also check the book flows, assess the readability and look at technical issues such as dialogue.
The single most important aspect of our editing service is that we look at each word of your book, AND then provide the clear and actionable guidance you need to fix your book.
I can’t emphasize this enough. We want to make sure that you learn all the extra skills you need to not make the same mistakes twice. We want you to be a better writer.

I’ve finished my first review of the edited book and have taken a couple of days for it to sink in. A re-read of the Editor’s Report is a daily event. I have wondered about the contribution an editor actually provides when I’ve read the effusive tribute in the ‘acknowledgement’ section of a novel. Now […]
The entire edit was extraordinary. The editor’s report was detailed and thought provoking, encouraging me to think about my novel in new ways and challenging me to improve my story, and thus the reader’s experience. The line edit was invaluable in pointing out where I had scenes with “tell” and too many adverbs. I was […]

What You Get
Our service is unlike any other editing service you will find.
We provide detailed line editing AND an editor’s report.
Other companies provide just one of these for the same price as we charge for both.
So why would we offer both?
The answer is because you need both to be able to improve your book. Only by having both line editing and an editor’s report can you get the kind of ‘publisher standard’ edit that will allow you to write better books.
Below is a screen shot of the line edit, as you will see it contains both tracked changes and ‘balloon’ comments, allowing you to stay in control at all times [Click image to enlarge].
Cost of Editing
Our prices are all inclusive, with no hidden extras. They include the editor’s report and in-depth edit, plus all support emails, phone calls etc.
Since we provide our service to any writer, no matter where they are based in the world, we can bill in three separate currencies.
- US Dollars: $ 10 per 1000 words.
- GB Pounds: £ 7 per 1000 words.
- Euros: €9 per 1000 words.
To work out the cost of your edit, first divide your word count by 1000 and then multiply by your currency. For example, a 50,000 word novel would be (50/1000 * 10) $500.
