Email us with details of which service you’re interested in and send us the first two chapters. Please remind us if you’ve used our critique or editing service in the last six months and you’re claiming your 5% discount. Let us know if you’d like a free, 500-word mini copy-edit.
We will agree a schedule with you before beginning any editing work, taking into account your requirements and the level of work likely to be involved.
The average turnround is 4-5 weeks for either developmental or copy-editing a full-length manuscript.
No, sorry; for editing we must have digital files.
Yes. For biographies, memoirs, travelogues and other narrative non-fiction, including articles and non-technical business writing, the price structure is the same as for fiction. We always need sight of the manuscript before we can confirm a quote.
Proofreading is the very last thing that happens to your manuscript before it goes to production, so this service is only for those intending to independently publish. We provide the service to writers who have already had their manuscripts copy-edited by Fiction Feedback. It caters for an author’s subsequent changes to a manuscript following recommendations or suggestions in the copy-edit. We will quote depending on the work it needs, with proofreading rates always lower than those for copy-editing.
We are sometimes in a position to extend help to novelists and will be pleased to do this where appropriate. We also offer practical help at very reasonable fees with covering letters and synopses to those whose work we’ve edited. Advice, and agent or publisher recommendations are free.
