Deluxe Author Package
When self-publishing or seeking out a traditional publisher, you want to ensure your manuscript is perfect, reflecting the months or even years you’ve put into it. In this package, three different editors will review your manuscript for style and grammar to ensure it meets your publishing goals.
First Editing Round (Style)
Initial phone/Skype consultation—You and your first editor, responsible for the style review, will speak by phone or Skype to go over your goals for your manuscript and any concerns or stylistic guidelines you would like addressed during your three rounds of editing.
Style review—Your first editor will make suggestions to improve the tone and style of your manuscript, focusing on elements like dialogue and individual sentence structure. Your style editor can also suggest ways to shorten or lengthen your manuscript to bring it in line with industry standards. Microsoft Word’s Track Changes feature will be used to convey suggested changes.
Detailed style editorial letter—Your first editor will provide a multipage letter explaining the edits to your manuscript and discussing the strengths and areas for improvement in your unique writing style. This letter will provide a deeper overview of any consistent style errors so you know how to address them in your future writing.
Second Editing Round (Grammar)
Grammar review—After you’ve reviewed the style edits, a second editor will go over your manuscript thoroughly to correct distracting grammar errors, further polishing your material. This will include Track Changes corrections for punctuation, spelling, and syntax as well as further improvements to clarity and sentence flow.
Detailed grammar editorial letter—Your second editor will provide a letter thoroughly explaining any consistent grammar errors from your manuscript so you know how to avoid them in the future.
Third Editing Round (A Final Polish)
Final review—Once you’ve reviewed the grammar edits, we’ll assign a third person—a proofreader—to review your finalized manuscript and eliminate remaining errors, such as typos or formatting quirks, to ensure your book meets publishing industry standards.
