Editorial Services for Self-Publishers

The Basic Once-Over
A simple proofread for those clients who prefer to self-publish their own work: We’ll fix your typos and clean up any obvious grammar and spelling errors. This alone will put your book ahead of 95% of other self-published titles!
Cost: $3 per page*

The Copyedit
A more thorough copyedit for those planning to self-publish: We’ll clean up your grammar and spelling, fix clunky or awkward writing, and make basic suggestions for improvements you can make in spots where the writing is unclear or could use a bit more work. This will elevate your book above 99% of other self-published titles.
Cost: $5 per page*

The Triple Play
A complete developmental/line edit, including both copyediting and proofreading, for those who plan to self-publish: We’ll handle all the basic cleanup of typos and grammar, but we’ll also point out plot holes, problems with voice and perspective, issues with character development—everything you need to take your writing to the next level before you publish. Assuming you actually make the changes that our editors suggest, your book will be on par with any title published by a traditional press.
Cost: $10 per page*

* For standardizing purposes, a “page” is defined as one page of double-spaced text in Arial 12-point font with standard one-inch margins.
