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.
