Book Editing Services
Your book is edited by seasoned, professional editors who work with bestselling authors in every genre. You’ll receive a fully edited manuscript along with any additional editor notes and suggestions. You will be working with an editor with the best combination of skills and experience for you. At BecomeShakespeare.com we make sure our Editing Services help enhance every manuscript we work on with several key features:
Proofreading is a virtual necessity for a manuscript about to be published to ensure that a ‘clean’ (error-free) manuscript is sent to the printer or the e-book processor. Proofreading is done at the final stage of a manuscript where detail-oriented language experts check the text for typos and basic grammatical and spelling errors. Proofreaders also make sure the appearance of the book is uniform and pleasing and that the style sheet has been followed faithfully.
Price: Rs. 0.5 per word.
Time Limit: 1 Week
If your manuscript has evolved to the point where your storyline, the structure and flow of your ideas and the characterisation on aspects of your manuscript are just right, but the language could be polished further, then the Basic Editing package is for you.
Basic editing or copy editing involves an Editor going through the manuscript line by line and cleaning up grammatical, phrasing and punctuation errors, re-writing a few words if need be, while making sure a specified house style is followed. Copy editing ensures reduction of grammatical and spelling mistakes, incorrect usages, repetitions and clichés, long sentences, and jargon. What evolves is a polished uniformity of tone and writing style, voice, sentence structure, and phrasing which follows international publishing standards.

Timeline: 1 – 3 weeks depending on the length of the manuscript
If your manuscript is one which would profit from a detailed study by an objective authority in the domain who could help you with each aspect of the craft, the Extensive Editing Package is perfect for you.
In this collaborative process, an Editor reviews your manuscript thoroughly and works actively with you to create a market-ready book. Suppose your manuscript has a few plot-holes, logical issues, contradictions, limited or inconsistent characterisation, factual errors or syntactical problems, the Editor will be able to analyse the issues and chalk out a way forward.
The Editor will make sure scenes are tightened up, that the language is spot on and will check if an interesting chapter or section should be brought forward or moved back. The service includes but is not limited to – the rearranging, deleting, adding and rewording of entire pages and chapters. This enhances the readability of the book, adding up to the best possible journey for the reader through the world of your story or ideas.
Encompassing aspects of Structural, Developmental and Copy Editing, the Extensive Editing package provides a full suite of editorial attention for your book.
