Line Editing – Non-fiction
Line editing looks at language and communication of your message. Our line editing packs a punch, with sub-heading suggestions, paragraph flow correction, less repetition, topic sentence suggestions, and look at consistent voice. It is not your regular copy editing or proofreading service.
Guideline for days required:
- A lead magnet (5,000 words) involves creating headings, arranging, resourcing and copyediting. If available, 1 week turnaround.
- A short book (30,000 words) involves about 24 hours to edit, so it’s about 2 weeks turnaround.
- A longer book (70,000 words) can take between 60 hours to edit. (Long books may be referred to our editor friend).
The average short book would cost about $1,500 to line edit, as long as there is no repetition of points and much rearrangement of content.
The average medium book (50,000 words) cost is stated in the price boxes below. This means the author spends time clarifying some points, then the editor checks it flows again.
From $175 per session, Jennifer offers Outlining sessions and support for developing a book and its theme.
These suggestions will help you, right from the start:
- connect to the reader
- stay on the theme
- stay on voice
- perform a re-structure of material, if required
- with advice on referencing and copyright matters.
Jennifer’s emphasis is on the connection and engagement of the content, alignment to your overall goals for publishing, and seeking a gap in the market. She also brings her enthusiasm for great ideas to your emerging work.
Editor feedback via Google Docs and lengthy discussions via Zoom.
