Copy-editing - As the author of your work you've spent many hours developing your material, but before you send it off to the people who matter you want to be certain that there are no errors, that the flow is constant and that everything is in place. We can check that all is as it should be and add anything that's missing.
Proofreading - Before your document goes to print or gets published online we can go over it to make sure there are no spelling mistakes, grammatical errors or general inconsistencies.
Manuscript appraisal - Having poured your heart into your manuscript you've got very close to your work and rightly feel proud of your achievement, but maybe you've got too attached. As a second pair of eyes, we can critique your story and provide you with a written report highlighting any inconsistencies, areas you may wish to develop, advice on plot lines and so on.
Structural editing - You've finished your draft manuscript but you want some help to make sure the whole thing hangs together and reads right. Perhaps you would like to work with someone to help develop your ideas further. A detailed structural edit could be the service you're looking for.
Copywriting - The words are what matters but different styles are required for different work. We can help you with writing business documents or blogs, newsletter articles, blurbs, reviews or CVs. If you can't find the words, we will find them for you.
Bespoke services - Alternatively, we can pull together any of the different aspects of the above services and tailor them to your needs. Just contact us and we'll be happy to discuss the matter with you.
Packages and bundles - to make life easier, we also offer packages for our customers. For example, an 80,000-word manuscript copy-edited, plus copywriting a 250-word blurb costs £525.00 ($685.00 or €615.00) as a bundle. If you would like eight 500-word emails proofread, we can provide a package for £80.00 (that's $105.00 or €94.00). If you want more emails checking bigger discounts can be agreed.
We work on the basis of a fixed price per project, or an amount per hour, depending on the service(s) you require. Copy-editing can be charged at £6.50 per 1,000 words ($8.50 or €7.65), or proofreading can be done at £5.75 per 1,000 words (that's $7.50 or €6.75). Alternatively we can work at a rate of £16.00, €18.00 or $21.00 per hour, though other prices can be arranged in advance based on the number of words or the estimated time taken to complete a project.
