Editorial Critique: $200

An editor will review your manuscript, providing feedback that will allow you to update your script and have the knowledge that your book is up to the standards of any traditionally published work.

The editor will provide additional recommendations with regard to the level of edit that the manuscript could benefit from; proofread, copy edit, or substantial edit. These services truly add a professional touch to your manuscript.

Remember, that everything our editors recommend are based solely upon their opinions and expertise—you may follow their comments to the letter, incorporate some, or reject them all.  It’s your work and your decision.




Substantive Edit: $6 per page (280 words per page)

Substantive editing is a heavy editing pass. It takes a comprehensive look at the overall intent and feel of a transcript. Much of the substantive editor's efforts are to help the final product make sense, to improve overall clarity and accuracy, and to challenge the author to be certain that the transcript's content is correct. A substantive edit generally includes looking for improvements in imagery, setting, foreshadowing, context, point of view, proportion, characterization, dialogue, plot, and general readability. We look for clarity, continuity, tone, structure, organization, and layout. A substantive editor may reorganize paragraphs and sentences, and rewrite segments to improve readability and presentation.

Please Note: A substantive edit does not include Scripture or end note checks, nor checking the accuracy of Greek, Hebrew, or any other foreign language text. Author is responsible for checking the accuracy of all Scripture verses, end notes, and foreign language text before submission.
