EDITING

Let Us Help You Shape Your Article, Web Content, or Book.

Editing is essential to any writing project, be it big or small. Even the most interesting story or compelling idea needs to be well-written. If it contains typos and mistakes, it not only makes a bad impression, it can negatively impact your bottom line—fees, profits, or royalties.

Even in this digital age, computer programs still have not been able to replace human editors. They counteract human error. In fact, when it comes to books, traditional publishers put a project through multiple rounds of editing.

At CRITICAL MASS PUBLISHING, we adhere to strict editing standards and have several experienced editors available to work on your project.

EDITORIAL REVIEW:

Get feedback on your manuscript from one of our editors. After a strategic read of your book (a portion of the beginning, middle, and end), our editor presents unbiased and constructive comments in a one page review outlining your book’s strengths and areas to improve. This review also includes a recommendation about the level of edit your work needs, including a sample edit of a small portion of your project.

This review requires a Microsoft Word document and is not a full edit of the manuscript. We charge a standard fee of $75 for articles or short stories and $195 for a full-length book.

COPY EDITING:

Your manuscript will be thoroughly reviewed to catch and correct any errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation, capitalization, and syntax.

DEVELOPMENTAL EDITING:

This is a detailed and comprehensive edit designed to fix the structure of an article or manuscript. If you have a great idea for your project, but are not sure how to put it all together, this may be the best fit for you. It is a two-step process: First, an editor makes comments in the margin indicating areas that need improvement. Then you rewrite the material and return it for another review. We then do a full copy-edit, which is included in this level of editing.

[Because EACH PROJECT IS DIFFERENT PRICING is DETERMINED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. but it is always less than industry averages.]
