E-MAIL CONSULTATION - there is no charge for this service. 
Before you go ahead and book any editorial work with me, I will check through your manuscript and advise you which services I propose are required to elevate it to an acceptable standard for self-publishing.  This includes grammatical amendment and formatting recommendations for e-books and standard paperback sizes ONLY - I do not offer appraisal feedback about creative merit, or advice regarding submission to publishers and/or literary agents, other than in exceptional cases - IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR BOOK REVIEWED, PLEASE CLICK HERE.
You can rest assured I will never recommend futile or unnecessary work.

QUICK SPELLCHECKING AND PUNCTUATION SERVICE this service is ideal for those who know a little about book formatting, or but do not have English as their first language, or are perhaps a little rusty at spelling.  It is exactly what it says - a simple spelling and punctuation amendment service before you finalize your proof - the rest is up to you.  PLEASE NOTE THAT WHERE I CONSIDER IT APPROPRIATE, I WILL ADVISE A COMPLETE COPY-EDITING SERVICE AS MORE SUITABLE.

COMPLETE COPY-EDITING (includes E-BOOK FORMATTING as standard) - I will grammar-edit your work to a very high standard of English, amending spelling, punctuation and paragraph formatting (where I deem it appropriate, I may replace entire words or restructure sentences for purposes of valid literacy).  The completed work you will receive will be prepared for Kindle publication as standard.
PLEASE NOTE: I will go out of my way to ensure your work is coherent to a high standardand will not shy away from using initiative.  

TRANSLATION SERVICES - whatever language your manuscript is written in, I can translate it to English whilst proofreading and copy-editing to my usual quality.

E-BOOK FORMATTING AS AN ADD-ON - if you have never self-published before, you may find the prospect a daunting one; the biggest headache, by far, is formatting.  There are few digital book platforms which set the standard of how e-books are submitted - they are incredibly strict, and will reject your book an infinite number of times, until the formatting is perfect.  I will properly format your e-book and ensure that it is ready for conversion and submission.

PRINT-READY TYPESETTING - I use professional standards and templates for my paperback formatting service.  Your book will include foreword, legal/ISBN/imprint page, bio and acknowledgement pages, titles and a table of chapter contents (where appropriate).  I use 11px Times New Roman or Garamond font as the standard - if you wish to change this, it is very easy to do once I return your formatted manuscript to you, and I will give you full instructions of what to do next.  

PLEASE NOTE: FOR REASONS OF PROFESSIONAL INTEGRITY I WILL ONLY E-BOOK FORMAT AND/OR TYPESET BOOKS UPON WHICH I MYSELF HAVE CARRIED OUT EITHER AN EDITING OR CHECKING SERVICE.
