Our Services


Our goal in editing your book is not just to check for basics of spelling and grammar, etc, but to help make your book better and help you become a better writer. We’ll be looking substantially at your structure and style as well, and giving you advice on where you can make improvements.

We have a unique approach to editing.

Most editors charge by the number of pages or the number of hours. If your 500-page book comes to us with little or no editing required, we’re going to charge you less than your 200-page book that requires a lot more work.

AND we won’t just send your work back to you after editing for additional work – we’ll be starting an ongoing conversation that will support you through the suggested edits.

Prices are in $US.
For GBP approx. x 0.75
For NZ/Aus approx. x 1.5

Review & Feedback


Whether you’ve finished your book or you’re just starting out,

send us your whole manuscript or your first few chapters and we’ll give you an idea of:

  1. What we think works

  2. What we think doesn’t work

  3. Style advice

  4. Structure advice

  5. Which editing fee range your book fits into

Formatting Only


There are style and formatting requirements to prepare your book for publishing as a paperback and in kindle.

If you don’t require any editing, this fee prepares your book for both of these formats.


Small edit plus formatting


You’ve got a book that’s pretty much ready to go and there isn’t a lot of editing needed. If we publish your book for you, then formatting will probably be at no extra cost and we'll also manage cover design for you (for which there are a range of price options, including a basic free option).


Moderate edit plus formatting


Needs work. 


Significant edit plus formatting


Needs substantial work. 


Cover Design


We work with an expert cover design company that format publication-ready paperback and e-book covers to our specifications.

Fees vary ranging from free to $100 to $250.
