Book Proofreading, Content Editing, and Co-Writing
You may hire us to provide a combination of any of these proofreading, content-level editing, and/or writing services listed above (Levels 1-5). For example, your 50,000-word manuscript may need the following: 20,000 words of “Level 2" editing, 10,000 words of “Level 3" editing, 10,000 words of “Level 4" co-writing, and 10,000 words of “Level 5" ghostwriting.
(Level 1) Final proofreading = $0.023 per word
“Level 1” includes one round of word-by-word proofreading of the entire manuscript that is focused on correcting errors related to punctuation, spelling, word choice, grammar, formatting, and sentence structure.
(Level 2) One round of editorial recommendations (author implements recommendations) plus one round of final proofreading = $0.043 per word
“Level 2” includes one round of “Level 1” proofreading plus one full round of comments in which the editor makes section-by-section recommendations about how the author can improve the content (e.g., style, flow, and marketability). "Level 2” also includes one 30-minute coaching session with our editor who provided the editorial comments. This session will give you an opportunity to ask any specific questions about the comments provided. Additional editorial coaching time with our editor can be purchased at a rate of $75 per hour.
(Level 3) One round of editorial recommendations (High Bridge Books implements the recommendations after receiving approval from author) plus one round of final proofreading = $0.073 per word
In addition to what is included with “Level 2” editorial recommendations and “Level 1” proofreading, “Level 3” includes assistance with reorganizing content, 500 words of ghostwriting (e.g., adding transition sentences, clarifying a concept, etc.), and branding the content of the book.
(Level 4) Co-writing = $0.40 per word
At “Level 4”, we interview you and turn your own words into written content for the book.
(Level 5) Ghostwriting (We research and write the content for you.) = $1.65 per word
At "Level 5", we write the content for you with general guidance provided by you. As the author, you have full control over what gets published.
