If you want to be a professional author,
hire a professional book editor.
Every great writer has a great editor, so don’t think you can bypass this critical step when writing a book. When you publish your book, your reputation is on the line, and if you want to establish yourself as an expert in your field, increase your credibility, and attract a following, you must hire a professional book editor.
Why use professional book editing services?
One of the best pieces of advice I can give is to nonfiction writers is to resist the temptation to let your college student or friend-down-the-street-who-majored-in-English tackle the project of editing and perfecting your book.
Without a doubt, there is an art form involved in editing a book-length manuscript. It’s not a blog. It’s not an article. It’s a message that must be sustained over several hundred pages. Professional book editors will polish your manuscript and make it shine so that you carry your readers from beginning to end.
A book editor with a track record of success
If you’ve already written your book and are looking to find a book editor to work with, I can help you. But I must warn you that you can probably find less expensive book editing services for nonfiction writers elsewhere. I strictly work with clients who want to produce a top-notch professional product that will establish them as an expert in their field, increase their credibility, and attract a following.
Books I’ve edited have been endorsed by A-list celebrities and have realized meaningful success in an industry that can be difficult to find real success. When you work with me, you are working with a highly skilled and in-demand professional book editor. You can learn more about me here.
The cost for professional book editing services starts at $5,000.
Here’s how the process works:
When payment is received, we will add your project to our production calendar and prepare a timeline with milestones and deadlines.
We will complete one full edit by the deadline and send the manuscript back to you for review. Payment for 25% of the project is due at this time.
You will read the full manuscript, add/change any areas as necessary, and return the manuscript to us according to the deadline.
We will complete the second full edit and return the finished project to you. The final 25% payment is due at this time.
*Please note that two rounds of editing are included in your quoted price. If any additional editing is needed beyond this, it will be performed on the rate of $175 per hour, estimated and paid in advance.
