What you get with this Hourlie
With over 25 years of experienced as a published writer and editor, I can provide you with perfect book formatting, checking that all technical aspects are on-point and adding all the finishing touches that give a book that feel of superior quality, from cover to cover.
- Chapter titles
- Alternating headers (this is not achievable in most writing software)
- Front and back matter
- Proofing and quality control of the entire contents
- Editing with drafting if necessary
- Insertion of figures, graphics, photos, illustrations, ISBN and barcodes, etc.
- Unlimited revisions to guarantee perfect results
The editing process can be quite extensive and it starts with getting to know the author and the manuscript. That way I can assure that the book achieves its goal, captivates readers and conveys the writer's style and uniqueness.
The finished product is a set of files that you can e-publish or send to a publisher or printer without any further hassle.
This service is for whole books - usually between around 60-80,000 words, however the Hourlie's maximum delivery period is five days. This doesn't allow for much editing.
Therefore this Hourlie covers 3000 words (with a margin of 10% in your favour, i.e. up to 3300 words). If your manuscript is longer, which it most probably is, please select the relevant add-on to bring it up to your desired wordcount or contact me for a tailored proposal. It is highly inadvisable to just edit a bit of a book.
Note: the add-ons are not deliverable in five days as stated; the rate is 3000-6000 per week depending on the quality of your manuscript. I will give you a more accurate estimation once I have reviewed the manuscript.
Note: this Hourlie is for credited work. It does include drafting, if necessary, which does not have to be credited.
What the Seller needs to start the work
Please provide a copy of your manuscript in any Windows-accessible format.
It may also be desirable to have a conversation on the workstream about your aims for the manuscript, to discuss style, fonts, etc. I can also offer a phone consultation at the start to get the ball rolling if preferred.
