Proofreading and Copy Editing(All Genres)

​​Our team of expert editors are ready and waiting to make your manuscript shine! Proofreading involves checking for errors in grammar, spelling, and punctuation, while copy editing focuses on improving the overall quality of the text. Each story is different, and the cost will depend on the manuscript quality. Please get in touch for a personalised quote. Fees start from just 0.01 per word (£10 per 1,000 words) for proofreading, and 0.019 per word (£19 per 1000 words) for line editing.

BETA Reading  (Romance, Thriller and Crime)

Beta reading is the process of completing a review of an author's manuscript before it is published. The goal of beta reading is to gather feedback on the story, characters, pacing, and other elements of the book to help the author improve the final product.


This difference between this and a free BETA read from a writer or colleague, is that we will provide a full report for you plus inline commentary. This service is £300 for manuscripts 20,000 words or less, then £50 for each additional 10,000 words.

Developmental Editing and Line Editing (Romance, Thriller and Crime)

Author servies

Developmental editing and line editing are two different types of editing used in the writing process. Developmental editing is the most complex and focuses on the overall structure and content of a piece of writing. This is priced at just 0.035 per word (or £35.00 per 1,000 words). Line editing, on the other hand, focuses on the language and style of the writing, improving the clarity, tone, and readability of the text. This is priced at 0.025 per word (or £25 per 1000 words).
