WHAT DRIVES YOU?

For many of our writers, being an author is a vocation in life, for others the drive to write is more of a 9 - 5 career decision, but they all share similar challenges in continuously crafting fabulous fiction. This is why we work hard to create a lively and stimulating community where our authors can network and support each other.

You can expect professionalism from our team as standard practice. We communicate constantly throughout the publishing process and we pride ourselves in paying our royalties promptly.

Substantive Edit

Substantive editing is at the scene and page level. The most intensive form of editing is substantive editing. The document is evaluated as a whole and problems of structure, organization, coherence, and logical consistency are corrected. Sentences may be removed or added. Paragraphs may be rewritten, condensed, or expanded. Blocks of text may be moved from one section to another. Substantive editing includes one revision at no additional charge. Turnaround time must be negotiated.

Line/Copy Edit

Line editing is at the paragraph and sentence level. Copyediting is at the word and punctuation level. The editor corrects problems of grammar, style, repetition, word usage, and jargon. Copy editing includes one revision at no additional charge. Turnaround time for copy editing typically is three business days.

Copy/Proofread

Proofreading double-checks copyediting and formatting. Proofreading is the lightest form of editing. Minor errors are corrected. Minor errors include:
• errors of grammar and style (e.g., verb tense, units such as ml, use of numerals and words such as “5” or “five”)
• errors of capitalization, punctuation (e.g., the use of commas, semicolons, colons, periods, dashes, apostrophes)
• errors of spelling and word usage (e.g., to/too, affect/effect)

Additional Editing Time

If we feel that your manuscript needs significant additional work and editing outside of our standard terms, we will speak with you about any additional costs that you may incur to finish the edit.
