Author Book Editing Instalment Plans

The instalment plans are available with a contract for 3 and 6 months and I offer two options for each and also bespoke available on request. To get a price you can either send me a message and I’ll respond with the monthly instalment plan for you or simply work it out for yourself by multiplying the price below by your word count and divide by the number of months. Examples of instalment payments are given below each plan.Glasgow Book Editing Consultant

Three Month Plan:

1. Proofreading only: £9 per 1,000 words – correcting typos, spelling, grammar, punctuation. This is for people who are very confident in their writing and believe the substance is spot on and the book is already in the best case scenario for sales and good reviews.

2. Developmental Editing and Proofreading: £13 per 1,000 words – if you want your book in the best condition it can be! For fiction work, I’ll offer an objective opinion on the plot, characters, motivations, and for both fiction and non-fiction, I’ll review the layout and will critique your writing so you can improve the overall quality and make suggestions to improve language, readability, tone, sentence and paragraph structure, and thoroughly polish the entire manuscript as well as correcting any errors as per above.

50,000 word book – if you choose level 2 over three months – 13×50 = £650/3 = three payments of £215, £215, £220.

50,000 word book – if you opt for level 1 over six months – 11×50 = £550/6 = six payments of 5x£90 + 1x£100.

How it works

Once we choose to partner on editing your book, we’ll agree a schedule over three or six months and divide the chapters up to work through over your chosen timeframe. If you chosen level 2, the developmental editing will be worked through first and the proofreading will be done on the final version to polish your manuscript.

Payments can be made via BACS Transfer or Paypal (+2.9% fee). You’ll be sent three or six invoices and payments must be made on or before the agreed dates each month and are usually at the beginning of each month but always prior to work commencement. Alternatively, if you’d prefer a shorter or longer partnership, I can work out a bespoke package for you. You can also check out my normal Editing and Proofreading Service.

I’d be happy to take a look at a sample chapter of your manuscript and I work with fiction and non-fiction authors. If you have a few questions, we can arrange a Skype call.

Author Consultant Services

In addition to the above, I also offer various other services including Author Publicity and Author Coaching Packages.

Some authors find it easier to hook an agent when they already have a book self-published with
some degree of success. So even if you are aiming to become traditionally published, it can still be worth looking at self-publishing one of your books first.Freelance copywriter in Glasgow
