More on Book Publishing Support Services

Our Line editing service is a thorough line-by-line edit of a book’s language. We edit for flow, not just for good grammar. It will range from 3 cents to 4 cents a word, quoted on viewing of your outline and chapter sample. A sample edit is often available for long works, so you can see the type of editing we perform.

A Developmental editing review involves looking at your manuscript, asking your objectives, and making comments to see if we can get that book to align with your ideal audience’s interests. The separate report will amount to about 5 pages.

Really knowing your target audience and where you can sell the book will help guide your next decisions.

Our Process

First, after any initial questions by email, book in a discovery phone call at a suitable time to discuss your options.

Then, we have a personal consultation and send you a pricing Proposal for your particular project.

You will receive a Service Agreement, to ensure you know what you are receiving and for what cost.

“Thanks for the manuscript, the Bibliography looks great, you have done a magnificent job.  In terms of time you spent on the drafts, it was in my opinion, value for money.  I can’t think how you could have achieved a better result.  You were willing to take on work from someone with an appalling grasp of the fundamentals of English grammar, someone who frequently strayed from the subject at hand, someone who didn’t understand the publishing process, basically someone who needed a lot of guidance.  You did all that and more in good humour and spirits, thank you, it has been an honour to work with you.”

"I took time selecting the best editor for my book, Joyful Eating. Jennifer’s editing style stood out from other example edits I received. She really understood who the book was for and her editing style reflected this. Jennifer made edits that not only ensured my work was grammatically correct; she edited in a way that ensured that the book was engaging while maintaining my voice throughout.

The process of editing was seamless, and I am delighted with the final draft and feel my book is far more readable. I would not hesitate to engage her services for any future writing projects. Thanks, Jennifer!"

“We highly recommend the services of Jennifer Lancaster of Power of Words. She offers value for money and excellent design and technical support.

We needed a fairly technical environment policy manuscript finessed into contents-and-cover files suitable for upload to print-on-demand. Through the many iterations of this task, we found Jennifer to be highly responsive and professional.

With Jennifer as our colleague, we got a great design at a reasonable price, assistance was on hand for the upload, and we were pleased with the crisp appearance of the resulting print title. Thank you, Jennifer.”
