The Longer The Book, The More You Save
You’ve written the book, you’re happy with the content, but something isn’t quite right. You know what you want each sentence to say, but for some reason the words are refusing to behave. Submitting your book for a copy-edit is a guaranteed way of raising the overall standard of your project (fiction or non-fiction), enhancing the quality and clarity of your vision, as well as highlighting areas where additional work may be needed.
With nearly ten years’ experience with unruly manuscripts, we have developed a strong reputation in the field and a long list of happy clients.
Our approach to copy-editing is to focus on inaccuracies and inconsistencies of style, tone, structure and content to enhance the clarity of your work while maintaining your unique writer’s voice. We will make changes at word and sentence level and offer suggestions for larger changes if necessary.
Every book is read twice and proofread to a publishable standard.
The longer the book, the more you save.
We charge £6.90 per 1,000 words for the first 70,000 words.
After 70,000 words, this is reduced to £5.50 per 1,000 words.
E.g. if your book is 100,000 words, we would charge you …
70,000 words @ £6.90 = £483.00
30,000 words@ £5.50 = £165.00
Total = £648.00
To save you even more money, take advantage of the 30% Discount for Combining Services
It is not uncommon for authors to require more than one service at the same time. It may be that a proofread and manuscript assessment are needed, or that you require the writing of a synopsis along with a copy-edit. A 30% discount is always offered for combining services (30% off the lowest priced service) so that you get more Whoosh for your money.
All fees are payable before completion of the work by PayPal, cheque or bank transfer.
The minimum fee for any service is £35.00. Please email for pricing information for books over 120,000.
