Tailor your individual self-publishing package
BookLaunch offers four key services to make self-publishing your book as simple as possible:
Enlisting the services of a good editor is universally recognised as crucial for the success of any self-published book. BookLaunch gives you access to the best editors in the business. We offer 3 levels of editorial assistance:
1. Proofreading (light): 1 cent per word
This service is for writing that you and your nearest and dearest have already pored over, but which you feel needs the attention of a professional proofreader. We cure your writing of spelling, grammar and punctuation errors, tracking the changes we make and inserting comments and suggestions for you to consider.
2. Copyediting (medium): 2 cents per word
This level is for writing that needs more revisions than standard proofreading. We pay close attention to your book’s audience and word usage and choice, and check for consistency in formatting and style. We track the changes we make as well as insert comments and suggestions for you to consider.
3. Structural editing (heavy): 3 cents per word
This level of editing ensures your book is clearly written and well organised. In addition to everything involved in levels 1 and 2, we undertake heavy-duty editing, and make more suggestions for rewriting. However, a cardinal rule of this level of editing is that rewriting must come from the original source. Should you feel your book would benefit from the creative involvement of our editors, we’ll be happy to discuss your needs with you.
