Editing prices

You care about your eBook and so do we

There's demand out there from indie authors like you with limited budgets who need a skilled editor to check through their work before it's published, to pick up the typos and silly mistakes that always manage to creep in, and to spot any inconsistencies or other little faults. It's for that reason that eBook-ed.it has come into being.

Editing can be very expensive. A lot of editors are too used to working for large publishing houses that have large budgets to cover their fees. Indie authors don’t, full stop. That’s where eBook-ed.it come in. If your budget is very limited, then I'll provide just the basic but crucial copy-editing services. Copy-editing is the work an editor does to improve the style, layout and accuracy of a text. It doesn’t necessarily involve substantially changing a text, but a good copy-editor is on the lookout for continuity slip-ups (blonde heroines turning into redheads, for example, without resorting to hair dye) and factual errors.

If your editing allowance is more generous, then, if necessary, but only if necessary, I can give more detailed help in the form of a full critique. For example, I can point out weaknesses in the plot or book’s structure or tailor it more tightly to a particular market. However, it's not my intention to rewrite your book. Too many editors try to do that, in my opinion, and want to charge a fortune for doing so. Each author has his or her own voice and editing is about making that voice as clear as possible by getting rid of any distracting errors.
