Small Book Review with Editing (under 5,000 Words)
We know you've put a lot of energy and dedication into your manuscript, but even experienced authors overlook their own mistakes sometimes. Since the editorial quality of your book will have an impact on your readers and its ultimate success, it's important to have another set of professional eyes look over your book before it's published.
The Balboa Press editors carefully review your full manuscript (under 5,000 words) and provide you with the edits best suited to your book. This all-inclusive service is an excellent option for children's books. We won't just point out what's not working; we can help you decide exactly how to fix it.
Here's what to expect:
- Line Editing: We perfect your spelling, punctuation, capitalization, grammar and syntax. And we'll provide recommendations for word choice and improving overall readability.
- Content Editing: We confirm the consistency of information and ideas throughout the whole book, and we also focus on more extensive sentence restructuring.
- Our editors use Microsoft Word® to track their changes, so you always retain control over final edits.
- You'll typically receive edits in three to four weeks, depending on the work queue and the complexity of your manuscript.
- This service does not include our advanced editorial services, such as Developmental Editing. Rather, it is a combination of our Editorial Assessment, Line Editing and Content Editing services.
- Balboa Press accepts a very low margin of error in each completed edit. Our professional in-house editorial staff reviews each editorial service for quality assurance—an edit won't be returned to an author until fewer than three percent of the original errors remain.
- Upon reviewing your edited manuscript, if you believe that an unsatisfactory number of errors have been addressed, 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.
- Our Line Editing service is also available in Spanish. For more information, speak with your publishing consultant.
