You've written a book and now want an editor to take it to the next level. 

You want your book to speak to your audience, solve a problem and position you as an expert in your niche.

This editing package is perfect for you!

what’s included?

Your book will go through developmental editing, copyediting and proofreading, the perfect combination to fully prepare it for publishing. 

DEVELOPMENTAL EDITING

We'll start with developmental editing which looks at your book as a whole. My aim to ensure your book has a tight, structured flow that is vital to a successful book.

This phase looks at the content, structure, flow and message to make sure your readers are being taken on a journey from start to finish. We want each reader to finish the book thinking, "Wow!"

You'll receive a tailored, in-depth report giving you valuable, actionable advice on:

  • Any major changes needed

  • What needs work

  • What's missing

  • What message your book sends

  • Any questions your book leaves readers with

  • What's awesome and unique about your book

copyediting

Next, each and every sentence of your book will be edited. The aim here is to ensure you have a strong, consistent voice and message that carries through the book. We want your unique voice to stand out and for readers to immediately connect with your message.

  • Review if your phrasing and wording is on-brand

  • Assess whether you are communicating with confidence and clarity

  • Edit for weak language and repetitiveness

  • Ensure your writing is aligned with your style and voice

  • Ensure you are giving the impression of an expert/authority

  • Make sure the book is oozing with passion and value

I use Word Tracked Changes when editing so you can clearly see all the changes made. I also leave notes throughout to make the whole process clear and easy to understand. 

proofreading

The final phase is proofreading. I look at every word and punctuation mark to remove any final errors. The aim is to make sure your book is consistent in spelling, capitalisations and abbreviations, and of course, error free. 

Formatting

If you're publishing your book through Amazon KDP, I'll format your book ready for upload direct to Amazon. However, I don't offer other formatting variations. 

the process

To begin, you'll receive a short workbook which gives me all the important information I need to edit your book effectively. Don't worry - it'll only take 5 minutes to fill in! You'll also receive the initial deposit invoice to get the project started!

Your book will go through developmental editing as well as copyediting. Everything is tracked using Word tracked changes so you can see all changes made. You'll also receive a editor's report which gives you detailed feedback!

Your book will then be sent back to you for review. At this point you can make changes based on the feedback given. Once you're happy with it, you'll send it back to be re-edited, proofread and formatted.
