While our substantive editing is all about dramatically transforming your book, regular copyediting and fact checking are focused on catching and fixing the sort of flaws that mark a book as unprofessional.
You don’t want typos, grammatical mistakes and misspellings in the book that’s supposed to act as your professional calling card and credibility builder.
Professionals have a process, they don’t just wing-it. And part of that process for publishing a book is ensuring it is properly copyedited and fact-checked.
A publisher will take care of this for you—they don’t want an unprofessional book! But if you use a different publishing option, you’re responsible for finding a good copyeditor and fact checker.
Our writing and editing staff can have your nonfiction book of up to 60,000 words fully copyedited, proofed, and fact checked. We’ll also help you secure permissions for the quotes in your book.
If you have a larger manuscript, contact us and we’ll give you a quote. The turn-around time for this service is between 3-4 weeks.
Fact-checking is limited to published facts—historical dates, famous quotes, published statistics, scientific studies. Exceptions not covered include private knowledge, references or research not based on public knowledge.
The rate for copyediting, proofing and fact-checking is $4,000.
