Spectrum Publishing Editing and Formatting Services

Congratulations! You’ve finished your book! Whether it’s your first book or your hundredth, the importance of good editing cannot go understated. Bad reviews will stall a writing career before it even has a chance to begin, and the majority of the one and two star reviews we come across say the same thing.

“You should have hired an editor!”

“Great story, but I couldn’t finish because of the typos.”

We also know what a dog-eat-dog business the self-publishing world can be. You have to take care of everything yourself. It’s daunting, a little frightening, and depending on where you go for assistance, more than a little expensive.

Spectrum Publishing has you covered. Our professional team of editors knows what a polished, professional manuscript looks like. We will give your work the focus it deserves, at some of the best prices in the industry.

 

Line Editing

Your own personal editor will go through your work line by line, with the goal of making it as efficient and friendly to the reader as possible. We strive to serve as both line editor and copy editor, providing a one-stop shop to a polished manuscript. Here are a few of the things we’re trained to look for and correct:

  • Incorrect grammar, including subject-verb agreement, misused homophones, punctuation mistakes, correct and consistent capitalization
  • Overused phrases and clichés
  • Readability and flow
  • Fact checking, within reason

Contact us  below to submit a sample of your work for editing, up to 1000 words.

Formatting

Our experienced team of designers will format your manuscript to stunning results, in both ebook and paperback formats.

For ebooks, we will make sure everything complies with .epub and .mobi standards, the formats used by the largest ebook retailers today. We’ll take care of everything, from the table of contents to the chapter headings.

We also ensure you’ll have a beautifully formatted paperback. Margins, headers and footers, drop caps, ornate chapter headings, images–we’ll work with your tastes to make sure you get the paperback you want. We’re writers, too, and we know that the feeling you get when you’re holding your hard work in your hands for the first time, well, it’s right up there with weddings and babies.

 

Editing Rates

Our line edit rates vary from .008 to .03 cents per word, depending on how clean the writing is, with discounts available for manuscripts over 100,000 words.

 

Formatting rates

We offer a flat rate of $50.00 for either ebook or paperback formatting, or $80.00 for both. You will also get a template for your artist to use when making the paperback cover.
