Express Proofreading Service

If your book or manuscript is already polished and only needs a final scan for those nagging typos, we can offer you low rates and a quick turnaround time. We specifically created this service for the author whose manuscript has already been reviewed by another editor or proofreader and is in the final draft stage. This is the service to request if you are about to go to press, upload your file to the Internet, or otherwise distribute it to your readers.

$2.50/page (page = 250 words) when marking hard copy
$2.00/page for corrected electronic copy (Ms Word, OpenOffice Writer, PDF, Rich Text)
Extended Proofreading / Line-by-Line Copyediting Service

​​Extended proofreading / line-by-line copyediting includes everything that comes with our basic service package. In addition, we will help you with the overall structure of your manuscript. Is your writing clear? Does it make sense? Is your word choice appropriate? Are there any redundancies or inconsistencies in the plot or narration? Are your characters or situations believable? During the editing process, we will leave you comments and questions in the margin of the document that address these issues and more.

$4.25/page (page = 250 words) when marking hard copy 
$3.95/page for corrected electronic copy (MS Word, OpenOffice Writer, PDF, or Rich text)
