Academic Book Editing & Proofreading
The Book Service
Manuscripts longer than 13,000 words are assessed on an individual basis, so an exact timeline and price can only be quoted after consultation.
Generally, I only accept longer manuscripts in need of Purple Service editing. Expect the editing work to take about one month. Manuscripts from 13,000-30,000 words will receive a 5% bulk discount. Manuscripts longer than 30,000 words will receive a 10% discount. The Precarious and Adjunct Faculty discount (20%) can be applied to this service.
Supplemental Services (Books)
Email Enquiries - $20
Keep me on retainer with five follow-up emails to ask short questions about editing and grammar as you continue to make revisions throughout the publication process.
Extended Reader's Report - $20 per 12k words
A detailed reader's report analyzing your introduction, theoretical discussion, methodological discussion, evidence and results, and overall sequence. This report identifies any structural/conceptual issues with the paper (beyond the scope of basic editing) which could cause trouble during peer-review.
Peer-Review Revisions Evaluation - $40 per 12k words
An evaluation of how the publisher’s peer-review requests have been implemented in the revision. The report highlights areas where the feedback can be better integrated to improve the likelihood of acceptance. Additionally, I will address any peer-review comments concerning language and clarity in my edits.
Zoom Your Book - $80
A 40-minute Zoom call to discuss the edits made, the strengths & weaknesses of your manuscript, and the next steps in the publication process.
