Copyediting, proofreading and manuscript services for authors from 33 South Textworks, based in Helensburgh, Scotland. 33 South Textworks offers copyediting, proofreading and manuscript 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.
