Proofreading

$3.50

Per-page*

*Understanding our per-page pricing

A “page” is based on a typical fiction book-page’s word count of ~280 words. To determine your “page count”, no matter your genre, please divide your total word count (found by selecting “Review” then “Word Count”) in your Microsoft Word document, using that result as your quantity.

Applying the Chicago Manual of Style, an editor will check your polished manuscript for typographical errors such as misspelling, misuse of punctuation, or wrong word usage (i.e. should of instead of should have, read instead of real, etc.). This is intended as the last pass for a manuscript that has already been reviewed by others and cleaned as well as the author can manage on their own.

Upcharges

All manuscripts may be subject to upcharges at the discretion of the Senior Editor. If a manuscript is found to have an unusually high number of errors or is not being submitted at the proper level of editing (i.e., if a manuscript submitted for Proofreading has not been previously edited or even had Spell Check run on it), then it will be assigned a higher cost. You may purchase the Editing Check service to avoid incurring this upcharge, and the cost will be applied to your subsequent editing purchase.
