Editing

Editing is an important aspect of the publishing process and Flipside Edge provides independent authors access to various editorial services. Upon submission of your manuscript, we assign a designated editor to confer with authors. We offer the following editorial services and charge at a per word rate:

Developmental Editing

  • An editor consults, critiques, and collaborates with you on your book. Developmental editing might include suggestions for rewriting and restructuring the text,¬†identifying plot holes and vague ideas, and¬†commenting on the effectiveness of the manuscript’s style.
  • Estimated Delivery: 1-3 months for works of 50,000 words or less (quotation for longer works).
  • Pricing: $200.00 for the first 10,000 words, $0.022 for every word beyond 10,000.

Copyediting

  • A copyeditor goes over your work. Copyediting includes checking for spelling errors, grammatical errors, punctuation, readability, and consistency.
  • Estimated Delivery: 2-3 weeks for works of 50,000 words or less (quotation for longer works).
  • Pricing: $145.00 for the first 10,000 words, $0.016 for every word beyond 10,000.

Proofing

  • A proofreader goes over the typeset proof and compares it to the edited manuscript. The proofreader also checks for any typesetting errors, consistency, and any unnecessary breaks and dangling words (i.e. widows and orphans).
  • Estimated Delivery: 2-3 weeks for works of 50,000 words or less (quotation for longer works).
  • Pricing: $110.00 for the first 10,000 words, $0.012 for every word beyond 10,000.
