Thorough process

We follow a three-step process to give you the best results. You can repeat steps if you need to make revisions. We work with you to refine the wording until your manuscript is ready for submission or publication. We edit books in US or British English.

1. First check

We check your manuscript using track changes for corrections and the comments feature for recommended improvements.

2. Review

We return your manuscript to you so that you can review our changes and suggestions.

3. Second check

After you make further changes, a different member of our team will proofread the final version of your manuscript.

What is included

We use track changes for error correction and the comments feature to suggest improvements. This approach allows you to see our suggestions and enables you to keep full control of your manuscript.

We include free revisions and work with you to refine the wording and make final adjustments until your manuscript is ready for submission or publication. Editing includes:

  • Improved word choice and sentence structure for fluency and clarity
  • Recommendations for better readability, appropriate tone and stronger impact
  • Suggested improvements in flow and organisation
  • Feedback on the strength of arguments (non-fiction) or consistency of the plot structure (fiction)
