DIGITAL FORMATTING

$7.50 per page

I convert your handwritten manuscript into a properly formatted Word document for editing.

 

You can mail me a copy of your manuscript (not the original!), or scan each page and send them to me via DropBox or Google Drive (I will provide links for these options).

COPY EDITING

$7.50 per page

I look for grammar, spelling, punctuation, usage, and other style issues in your typed manuscript.

 

For this option, I need to have a properly formatted, typed manuscript. Here are the formatting guidelines for copy editing:

  1. Send your manuscript as one Word document (.doc/.docx), do not send individual chapters as separate files.

  2. Font: black, 12-point, Times New Roman. Cool fonts are used later in the interior design process, not in the editing process.

  3. Page size: U.S. standard 8.5×11 inches.

  4. Margins: 1 inch on all sides.

  5. Alignment: left-justified.

  6. Sentence spacing: only use a single space after periods. This is standard in the digital world.

  7. Line spacing: double-spaced.

  8. Paragraph indents: 0.5 inches.

  9. Chapter spacing: use page breaks.

  10. Page numbering: begin on the first page of your content, not on the title page.

PROOFREADING

$2.50 per page

I review a proof of your edited and designed product before printing. I look for typographical errors, as well as any minor text, spacing, and formatting issues.

 

For this option, you provide me with a print-ready PDF proof of your book.
