Email any questions to editor.novelneeds@gmail.com


Now that you’ve completed your manuscript we want to assist you in fine-tuning your book. TWO editors go through each book.  

Things we look for as we copyedit your manuscript:pen blot

  • Missing words
  • Grammatical errors and misspellings
  • Flow, tone, and style
  • That you’ve explained yourself well
  • Misused or overused words and phrases
  • Inconsistencies such as character descriptions, plot points, and settings
  • Continuity errors and making sure there are no loose ends

We use Track Changes to show corrections inline and Comments along the sidebar to ask any questions we may have about word usage or discrepancies in the story. 

Two editors go through each manuscript the author can decide if they want us to:
 
1)  edit at the same time (you receive one manuscript back with both of our edits showing in track changes) 
2) you can have the first editor read through it and send it back for revisions and then the second editor reads through it 
 

Payment Policy

Rate: $.006/per word         

An invoice will be emailed to you through Paypal for a deposit of 50% of the full editing price when you send in your complete manuscript. An invoice for the remaining balance will be sent upon completion of the edit.

Our turnaround times are typically under 10 days but to accommodate your deadlines please schedule your edits in advance to avoid conflicting timetables. 

If you require an immediate (7 days or less) turnaround time, a $75 rush fee will be added.
