Proofreading can make or break a book. Grammar, spelling, and punctuation mistakes can be the difference between a reader finishing a book and providing a review or a DNF or a bad review. After the blood, sweat, and tears it took to create your story make sure you send it to your readers ready. My style of proofreading includes all aspects of a copy edit. I will look at grammar, usage, and word choice as well as punctuation and spelling.
Romance readers are fickle. Reviewers can be brutal. Too many story inconsistencies can turn off a reader which could make any possible success into considerably less. A great edit will make sure even the most careful reader will be able to follow a story without question or confusion. I offer developmental editing and line editing. I work closely with my authors and communicate throughout the process.
Are editing and proofreading worth the money? You tell me. Is it worth it if you get more readers and sell more books? Is it worth it if reviewers on Goodreads, Instagram, Blogs, and Facebook tout the perfection of your writing and recommend your book? Amazon will penalize authors who have to many editing and proofreading mistakes. Would an Amazon penalty affect your current and future book sales? We all want to stay out of Amazon jail!
I believe a well written, edited, proofread book will sell better and garner more attention. Attention is everything in the self publishing world. Thus, worth the cost. Any cost.
If you combine an edit and proofread the cost will include a second read after changes have been made in order to view, correct, and proofread the final product.
Cost will vary depending on the stages of writing your WIP has been through. It is best to contact us for pricing.
I strive to have your WIP back to you in 7 days. If it will be any longer than that I will always let you know.
Most importantly, because I care about your book. I only work on 1-2 books at a time. Your book will be my priority. I will help you get that book ready for market, review it, follow your progress, be available to answer questions, and be a supporter of your book after it is released. I want to work with authors and help create successful books.
