Services For Authors and Publishers

Let us take on some of the production work in your book so you have more time for writing and marketing.

Copy Editing

Correcting a manuscript for spelling, grammar, usage, and consistency ($0.06/word).

Line Editing

Detailed advice on the structure, pacing, length, and style of a work. We specialize in popular nonfiction but are happy to work with any type of writing ($0.10/word—up to two rewrites).

Full Editing Package

Includes copy editing and line editing, above ($0.14/word).

Ghost Writing

Uncredited writing of anything from a 500-word blog article to a full-length textbook. Most of our writers have previously published under their own names and hold advanced degrees in their fields ($0.20/word).

Type Setting

Creation of a "print ready" PDF file from your manuscript or file. We use professional typesetting software to produce a far better result than is possible with a word processor (e-mail for quote).

EBook Conversion

Creation of professional quality EPUB and Kindle (.mobi) format ebooks from your file or manuscript. Includes uploading to Amazon and Smashwords (e-mail for quote).

Indexing

Creation of a complete, professional-style index from your hard-copy proof, word processor file, or LaTex source document (e-mail for quote).

Format Conversion

We can convert nearly any electronic file format into any other electronic file format on an individual or bulk basis (e-mail for quote).

Scanning

Conversion of your physical book or manuscript into the electronic format of your choice. Includes "first pass" proofreading to correct scanning errors ($8.00/page).

Technical Illustration

Professional quality diagrams, charts, and technical drawings in the electronic format of your choice (e-mail for quote).

Cover Design

An eye-catching, genre-appropriate cover for your book. Includes a "print-ready" PDF file for physical books and a .jpg image for ebooks or catalog listings (prices start at $45).

Volume Discounts

We will be glad to discuss volume discounts for customers who need work done on multiple books. Do you have a backlist of titles waiting to be scanned or converted? Bring it to us.
