In your own work, it is hard to catch all the lurking typos and errors, even if you read it over and over again. Our Line Editing service provides a thorough correction of your manuscript to catch anything you may have overlooked. This includes catching mistakes in spelling, punctuation, capitalization, grammar, and syntax. Recommendations on word choice and improving overall readability will also be provided. Using Microsoft Word®, your editor will track every change for you to approve or reject. This manner of editing ensures that you always have the final say in what happens to your book.
A detailed edit is extremely important to the overall quality of your book. Within six to eight weeks, depending on our queue and the complexity of your work, your manuscript will be returned polished and ready for publishing.
*Note: Line Editing is also available in Spanish. For more information speak with your publishing consultant.
*There is a 5,000-word minimum charge for all editing services.
Please note: Balboa Press accepts a very low margin of error in each completed edit – no more than three percent of the total errors found. Our professional in-house editorial staff reviews each editorial service for quality assurance. Upon reviewing your edited manuscript, if you believe that an unsatisfactory number of errors remain, please create a list of the errors and the page numbers on which they appear and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will review the list with you and address your concern.
