You've wrote a book, now what?

Novel Needs provides different levels of editing. The level of editing a book needs can vary depending on what the author is looking for and their skill level.  Contact us at editing@novelneeds.com for a free five-page sample edit and price quote.

Line Editing / Copy Editing

The most common level of editing. We are looking for spelling and grammatical errors in addition to checking your flow, tone, style, and consistency. We look for words used as crutches, words that are misused, overused, words that don't belong, and missing words. We make sure that you've explained yourself well, that nothing needs to be added—or deleted—and that everything is where it belongs. 

Rate: $.006/per word

Turnaround time: One to two weeks

Proofreading

The most basic level of editing. As the final stage of the process, this service is only for books that have been previously edited.  Writers who want to have one last set of eyes go through their manuscript prior to submitting or publishing their book will want this.  Novel Needs offers a 15% discount for proofreading books that were previously edited by us.

Rate: $.004/per word

Turnaround time: One to two weeks 

 How do you show corrections?

When you send us your manuscript, the first editor goes through your story using Track Changes to show the correction. We also use Comments to ask any questions we may have about word usage or discrepancies in the story. We return the manuscript to you for your review. Once you've revised the manuscript, return it for the second editor to go through. 

***Note: Upon request, we will do the edits simultaneously, we understand how sometimes deadlines leave you crunched for time. ***

 Payment Policy

When you send your manuscript, an invoice will be emailed to you for a deposit of 50% of the full editing price; the remaining balance must be paid before the completed edit is returned to you. All payments are made through Paypal.

Email your manuscript to: editing@novelneeds.com

What do you edit?

We edit fiction and nonfiction books; short stories, novellas, and novels alike. While we edit any fiction genre, we primarily edit romance.

All turnaround times are based on an average manuscript size of 70,000 words. Manuscripts larger than this may require more time. Also, sometimes, depending on our workload, there may be a waiting period before the project can be started.

We care about our customers and personalize every experience, tailoring our products to fit your needs.

Disclaimer

Although we do all that we can to provide you with a perfect manuscript, we can’t promise that your document will be 100% error free. There is always the possibility that you—or someone—may find a typo or see some form of punctuation that’s in error.
