Editing and Proofreading Service

Need your manuscript edited and proof-read so that it is ready for publication? Look no further. We now offer a full electronic editing and proof-reading service which complements our current manuscript critique service.

If you have been immersed in the pages of your manuscript, it is impossibly hard to view the written word with any type of clarity. You will miss duplicate words or phrases, spelling mistakes, punctuation and a wide range of grammatical errors. All of which will hamper your potential to get published.

Our editing service looks at content, structure and style and we also look for clarity and consistency of writing. The editing process starts as soon as the first draft is completed and provides an in-depth look at the quality and standard of your writing.

Many people skip the proof-reading stage giving a cursory glance over their work but sadly, this is insufficient in the eyes of the publishing world and unfortunately, you are judged by the presentation of the material you present. Many people feel that the editing and proof-reading are provided at the same time but ideally they should be looked at separately. It is down to the individual in terms of time and finances and we are happy to discuss requirements.

Full Length Book

For a full-length novel or non-fiction book, we charge $4 per page.

Fixed Project Price

If your budget is limited, talk to us. We may be able to offer you a fixed price so that you know exactly the cost from the start.

By the Word Editing

This service is perfect for those who need clear and concise editing which is ideal for those writers where English is not their first language.There is a minimum charge of $49.95 plus 0.10 cents per word.

By the hour

Sometimes there are projects that are very difficult to price, so we can also provide a by-the hour charge. There is a minimum $50.00 charge for this service and extra charges may then apply depending on the hourly duration through extended word count or technical difficulty for example.


We edit and proof-read fiction and non-fiction books, technical documents, brochures, scripts, business letters, newsletters and communications etc. Please just contact me with full details if you have a specific request.

Annette Young is an excellent, professional, editor. She provides a complete service, including guidance and support. As a novice author, I had a lot to learn and Annette was very patient, supplying clear and helpful advice throughout the whole process. She not only supported me and helped me thrash out ideas, she proofread my manuscript and converted the document for kindle publishing. Her assistance continues, with her full support, and I’m excited about continuing this partnership.
