Editing or Proofreading?

So you have written your book and are ready to get editing, proofread and published. We help first time or experienced authors convey their message, knowledge or testimony to others about Jesus Christ.

With most of our publishing packages, we accept work that is already proof read or edited, but you may feel that your grammar or punctuation is not good enough – that is where we have professionals to edit your book and give tips on how to make your book fit for the retail market, just leave it to us.

What is the difference between editing and proofreading?

Editing and proofreading are different steps in the process of revising a text. Editing comes first, and can involve major changes to content, structure and language, usually done by authors themselves, while a professional editor makes the final improvements to grammar and style.

Proofreading is the final stage of checking before it is published. Our team focuses on correcting any spelling mistakes, punctuation errors, tidy up the dialogue formatting – and generally get it presentable and ready for printing. This is only available with our Platinum package but our editors are dedicated to making sure your book is 100% professional for publishing. We provide a final review of your manuscript before printing.

For you to see corrections, comments or suggestions, we employ MS Word Track Changes on your document. We’ll also provide you with a clean copy (a ready-to-use file). So when submitting your manuscript we only accept it in a Word format. We cannot edit pdf(s). For ease, submit in doc or docx.

Tips for writers
Before you get to the final stage of proofreading make sure you have thoroughly revised and edited your work. Only proofread once you are happy with the final draft, rather than deciding to take out whole paragraphs later on.

 

Extract from Flawless

Chapter One – School Days 

Just like in Bill Bryson’s A Short History of Nearly Everything, I am going to have to skim over some parts of my childhood and adolescence just so that we are not here all day.

I was born in November, 1982, the same year Michael Jackson released his Thriller album, Channel 4 was launched, the film E.T came out and everyone was listening to The jam or The Human League. I was born in Bradford, at the BRI to Caroline and James Smith.  We lived in Wrose, in the first house mum and dad bought after they got married, it was perched on a steep hill with wonderful views over Shipley. My brother Alexander came along twenty months later and we moved to Baildon, a small village on the outskirts of Bradford nicely nestled on the edge of the Moors, and that’s where I spent my childhood. – Extract from Flawless, Victoria Kalzyka

Extract from I DO, I DO, I DO, LOVE ALWAYS WINS

Experiencing ups and downs in your marriage? Marriage in general has highs and lows. In I do, I do, I do, Love always wins, by Patricia Gault, is a love story that has twists and turns! It is a personal testimony about how God restored Pat’s marriage.

I Do; I Do; I Do falls into the testimony book genre. It is a memoir, a powerful story of love and forgiveness in the midst of betrayal and heartache. It is written primarily from a wife’s perspective. The strength of this book is the story itself of marriage restoration – all the more amazing because it is true.
This book is intended for those who find their marriages are in trouble, but who still love their spouses, and wish to find an alternative route to the finality of divorce …  also if divorce has already taken place – this book is for you. And this book is to give hope to those who are in despair – whether you are people of great faith, of little faith, or of no faith at all.
I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD. Be strong and take heart. Wait for the Lord. (Ps. 27:13-14)
These verses have been marked in my Bible over eleven times within a period of twenty years.
God’s promises are worth waiting for, even when His timetable doesn’t match our own expectation or desires.

‘For Those Being Crushed’
by Camilla Olim

Here is a preview of Camilla Olims’ book, For Those Being Crushed, soon to be published. This book is intended to encourage, equip and persuade Christians to confront what may be our biggest ‘social justice’ blind spot – abortion.

Acknowledging that our silence has, to some degree, equated to complicity, it also proposes that the Church has a vital part to play in turning the tide on an issue close to God’s heart. This book uses Scripture to demonstrate that abortion matters to God and therefore, it should also matter to us.

‘This book – clear and challenging, passionate and persuasive, well-researched and well written – should change our attitudes and actions. Revd Canon J. John and Evangelist comments.

‘Nicodemos You Must Be Born Again’
by Pastor Abraham

Get a sneak peek at Pastor Abraham’s new book, ‘Nicodemus you must be born again’ which is soon to be published and available for purchase. This book is a complete self-interpreted message to the children and the men of God, who have been in ministry for many years, claim to be doing well in ministry, but still need to be born again.

Some have promoted themselves to Bishops, Apostles, Pastors, Prophets and Evangelists and are still looking forward to what would make them great in the sight of men but in the sight of God they are Nicodemus who needs to be born again of water and of the Spirit in JESUS’ name for the remissions of their sins.

This is a must read especially for our leaders of today.
