NEW SERVICE 1st March 2017
Introductory critique and proofread service
Are you a first-time author who wonders if their work is suitable for publication?
Are you an experienced author who wants an honest opinion about a new book?
Judging the merit of your own work isn’t always easy and for that reason we are offering both new and experienced writers an introductory combined critique and proofreading service.
How will the service work?
With so many books being published every year, you want to make sure that you catch readers’ interest – and maintain it.
Our experienced editors will critique the opening pages of your manuscript (the number of pages will depend on the complexity of the work). We will provide you with a detailed report on what we have read in which we discuss its potential and offer advice on how you can carry the book forward to publication.
Your book also needs to be written with fluency and technical accuracy so, at the same time, our editors will carry out a preliminary proofread of the content. This will focus on spelling, punctuation, grammar and syntax. You will be able to see what they have corrected and why – and this will give you pointers for future work.
We’re offering this introductory service as a way to help authors look at their work from a critical and editorial perspective. We continue to offer a range of full critiquing and editorial services for authors who are ready to publish.
