Helping you to 'put it out there'
Writing can be as frustrating as it is rewarding; there will be times when a mentoring editor gives you the confidence to keep going. But more than anything, having your work professionally proofread and edited will help you to avoid mistakes that you'd otherwise unknowingly read through countless times.
- My cost is based on the number of words you've written: £7.50 per thousand words. Proofreading and editing an 80,000 word novel, for example, would be £600, and there's no VAT to add.
- That includes two full passes of your work and as much email contact as necessary between us to clarify anything in your manuscript, or to get your feedback on my suggested edits as the work progresses.
- I accept manuscripts in most word processor formats. Unless otherwise agreed, it will be returned as a Microsoft Word file. Suggested amendments will be marked up using MS Word's 'Track Changes' feature, allowing you to easily accept or decline edits, one by one, with a click of the mouse.
- Notes will be added within the manuscript using MS Word's 'Comments' function. I add detailed notes giving the reason for suggested amendments where it may not be obvious.
