Business Book Editing

You’ve worked hard on your book, and you’re eager to get it out into the world. But you need a competent, experienced, and responsive editor to help you finish the project.

I have worked with best-selling authors, as well as people writing their very first book. I specialize in non-fiction books, especially the business and entrepreneurial categories.

How’d I learn to do this? I have over 20 years of editing experience, as well as a Ph.D. in English from the University of North Carolina.

Book editing falls into three service tiers:

Proofreading – correcting text; uses track changes function in Word; involves one round of editing; lowest cost. Turnaround time: typically less than one week.

Copy-editing – suggest revisions to make writing more concise & powerful; also provides everything in the Proofreading level; involves at least two read-throughs of manuscript. Turnaround time: typically less than two weeks.

High-level editing – provide feedback on content and organization, filling the role of what a publishing house editor used to do; also provides everything in the Proofreading and Copy-editing levels; typically involves three read-throughs of the manuscript. Turnaround time: typically between two to three weeks.

Not sure what you need? Or not convinced you really need an editor? I’ll edit a few sample pages of your manuscript for free to help you decide!
