Copyediting, proofreading and beta reading services for authors from 33 South Textworks, based in Helensburgh, Scotland. 33 South Textworks offers copyediting, proofreading and beta reading services to authors worldwide.
Make no mistake – that is a major achievement, and one you should be incredibly proud of.
Use my Editorial Services page to evaluate for yourself, but I can always help you decide by completing a Sample Edit.
Copyediting or line editing involves more work than basic proofreading and will be charged accordingly. Manuscript services are charged per project.
I consider a manuscript to be any one text over 30,000 words. This includes novellas, novels, pocket books and full magazines.
The Sample Edit should give you an excellent idea of how I work and my style, so you can decide if I’m a good fit for you. The Sample Edit will also give me a good idea of how you work, how the manuscript looks, and how long the job will take.
Manuscripts will not be quoted without a Sample Edit.
If you choose to accept the quote and request my services, a 50% deposit will be required and should be paid before work starts. We’ll also sign a basic contract, so we’re in absolute agreement on terms.
If you accept my quote, I’ll send you a contract and an invoice for payment of the deposit. Paying the deposit reserves the time in my diary.
I’ll then send you a reminder a week before our agreed start date.
