Book Editor Canada professional editing and proofreadingManuscript Evaluation and Project Development

Book Editor Canada can review your first draft and produce a detailed report that identifies strengths of the project and, as needed, provides directions for further development. Find out your problems of style, structure, and concept, and gain practical suggestions for resolving these issues. Having an initial evaluation (also known as asssessment, review, or critique) of your project's first draft can save you editing time and costs.


Structural and Stylistic Editing

As needed in any given work, Book Editor Canada undertakes full structural and stylistic editing, which may include any or all of reordering paragraphs; restructuring and/or reorganizing chapters, scenes, sections, and/or parts; rewriting or writing in to enhance logic, clarity, and/or flow; and editing to ensure the most appropriate style for the particular work.


Copyediting entails line-by-line editing to ensure consistency of usage and syntax and to correct or enhance the mechanics of language, including grammar, spelling, and punctuation.


Following design and layout, Book Editor Canada can proofread your final proofs to maximize the correctness of the book or project to be published. Note that Book Editor Canada also uses the term proofreading to include checking edited manuscripts and other projects to ensure correctness in the pre-layout stage and to enhance the professionalism of manuscripts to be submitted to agents and publishers.

Value-added editorial services

As part of any editing job, Book Editor Canada formats manuscripts according to the requirements of each work, ensuring that each is properly formatted for its purpose and conforms to standard guidelines to facilitate subsequent layout and production. Formatting may include any or all of inserting or correcting front matter, headers and footers, page numbers, margins, headings and subheads, indentation, line spacing, and spacing between sentences. Depending on the project and client requirements, Book Editor Canada offers such additional services and assistance as ebook formatting, query letter writing or editing, and templates and information documents to help further your publishing goals.


Book Editor Canada edits and proofreads books and book manuscripts; book-length works, such as corporate and other major reports, theses, and dissertations; and additional projects that may be shorter than book length but require comparable editing expertise.

Professional editing on screen

As a rule, today's professional book editing is done on screen, using a digital file of the manuscript and editing software for markup, typically Microsoft Word Track Changes. This editorial best practice enables transparent editing, ensures the highest possible level of correctness and consistency, and eliminates unnecessary use of paper. Without exception, Book Editor Canada no longer evaluates or edits manuscripts in hard copy.

Not sure about how to work with Track Changes? Book Editor Canada will be happy to assist you.

Flexible, fair editorial fees

Editorial fees vary according to the length of each manuscript and the amount of work and time required for any particular manuscript evaluation or editing/proofreading service. Based on the type of work requested, the fee may be estimated and charged on the clock or quoted as a fixed project fee, which is determined by using a standard editorial productivity rate calculation. Book Editor Canada consistently strives to provide the fairest possible fee quote for your individual project and needs.
