Copy Editing – Non-fiction

This editing level looks at the language and communication of your message.

Editing with sub-heading suggestions, paragraph flow correction, less repetition, topic sentence suggestions, and a look at consistent voice.

Line editing is now open for 2024 – get a free quote and edit sample soon.

Guideline for days required:

  • A lead magnet (5,000 words) involves creating headings, arranging, resourcing and copyediting. 7 days.

The average short book would cost from $1,000 to copy edit, as long as there is no repetition of points and much rearrangement of content.  This means the author spends time clarifying some points, then the editor checks it flows again.

Writing Coaching

The budget for this depends on your type of book and the length. Researched books take a bit longer to develop, for instance.

From $180 for one-off development, up to $4,500 for a full book development program, video training and more, Jennifer’s support can help support you through the process.

DIY self-publishing training lets you know the administration, making it up to you whether you:

  • Publish under your own imprint, with freelancing editor, typesetter
  • Or make a strong pitch and do a proposal for traditional (free) publishing.

These suggestions will help you, right from the start:

  • connect to the reader
  • stay on the theme, by doing a simple outlining method
  • editor guidance to stick to one written 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 with 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/Word and discussions via a video call.
