Tier 2 (Copyedit & Manuscript Evaluation)

$150 Minimum Charge
1.75¢ to 3.75¢ Per Word

Tier 2 service combines copyediting with a full manuscript evaluation. It is a popular service for authors who wish to not only have their manuscript edited, but also want to gain an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of their work and their writing.

Tier 3 (Copyedit & Proofread Combination Package)

$200 Minimum Charge 
2.25¢ to 4.25¢ Per Word (Save 50% Off Proofreading!)

Tier 3 service permits two manuscript submissions rather than one. It is an excellent choice for authors who are confident in the strength of their manuscript and writing, and therefore do not want or need a manuscript evaluation and text analysis as part of their package. The Tier 3 service provides a thorough copyedit along with an exacting proofread (at a 50% discount!) to ensure the book is ready for publication.

Timing restrictions apply: Proofread must be submitted within two weeks of copyedit return.

It is equally appropriate for both first-time authors and for any author who is serious about their work. The fee includes copyediting, proofreading, an in-depth manuscript discussion, fact-checking, research assistance, query letter and synopsis assistance, insight into self-publishing, and educational resources.
