Editorial Services: A truism perhaps, but nonetheless one worth repeating; a badly edited manuscript can be as detrimental to a book’s chances of success as can poor cover design or an unconvincing synopsis.

It is self-evident that a poorly written ebook - however well edited - can’t be expected to exactly fly off the cyber-shelves. However, the combination of great writing, professional editing, a persuasive synopsis and an eye-catching cover, will ensure that the odds on your book achieving success will dramatically improve.

In keeping with our keenly priced ebook formatting and publishing services, we also offer attractively priced, professional editorial services. We estimate that our editorial prices are at least 25% below those of our competitors. But you don’t have to take our word for it - search online for manuscript editorial services or proof-reading services, and see for yourself. However, if you do find what seem like lower prices elsewhere, we would ask you to check that they are offering levels of editing comparable to the options outlined below. We are confident that after reviewing The Electronic Book Company’s low-priced, high-quality editorial services, you won’t want to use anyone else.

Pricing and Editing Options: Manuscripts are priced per page (250 words). There are three levels for you to consider: 

Option 1: Proof-reading with light editing.
  1. We check the proof word-for-word and identify errors for correction: typographical errors; word repetition; punctuation.
  2. We check for spelling errors, usage of UK/US spellings and maintain consistency across the document.
  3. We check for errors in word usage. For example: the use of 'to' instead of ‘too’; ‘there’ for ‘their’, etc, and subject-verb agreement.
  4. We also check grammar. For example: using ‘which’ instead of ‘that’. We will also recommend changes in word choice where words appear out of context.

Price:  £1.50 (GBP) - €1.88 (EUR) per page (250 words)

 

Option 2: Proof-reading with medium editing.

  1. In a medium edit, we will do all of option 1 but will also check for style consistency and relationships between text, graphics and chapter titles. Table-of-contents entries and organizational problems are also corrected.
  2. With an author’s permission, we will rephrase overly long or confusing sentences to improve the flow and readability of the text, without changing the author’s intended meaning whatsoever.
  3. We will highlight inconsistencies in a story-line and where appropriate, offer creative advice on how we think your book can be improved.
  4. Your book could also benefit from an international friendly edit. This means where appropriate, we will make subtle yet vital changes to produce a book that can be more readily understood by a wider global readership. You can find out how our international friendly edit can help your book achieve more worldwide sales - HERE

Price:  £2.30 (GBP) - €2.88 (EUR) per page (250 words)

 

Option 3: Proof-reading with heavy editing.  

        This full creative edit can turn a book into something very special indeed.

  1. Includes options 1 and 2, but in this full creative edit we will also highlight conflicting statements, inconsistencies in a plot or a character, seeking an author’s advice where necessary. We also make suggestions and fix whatever is incorrect, confusing, ambiguous, or inappropriate in the text.
  2. We will organize a text into paragraphs and chapters where necessary, and rephrase sentences and dialogue to improve the flow and meaning.  This can make a moment of romance or drama, for instance, far more effective.

3. Your book could also benefit from an international friendly edit. This means where appropriate, we will make subtle yet vital changes to produce a book that can be more readily understood by a wider global readership. You can find out how our international friendly edit can help your book achieve more worldwide sales - HERE

  1. This full creative edit will make a good book, a very good book.  It is the process by which we as editors, and you as the author can really make a difference to your book, and have it flying off the online shelves.    

Price: £3.50 (GBP) - €4.38 (EUR) per page (250 words)
