Book Editing Guidlines

A Developmental Editor

Focuses on plot, character development, theme, point of view etc. This type of editing is only offered when you need guidance on writing your story. The cost for development editing is significant, and requires a lot of your editor's time. So if you think you need this type of edit, you must make sure you let us know, so we can factor the time needed and give you an approximation on costing.  Costs may well vary for this during the edit, so remember to factor this into your budget.

Note: Swish reserves the right to refuse developmental editing if the writing is at a level where the editing process will take significant time and resources.

A Line Editor

Focuses on writing style and voice, points out phrasing, repetition, telling vs showing, dialogue issues and flagging inconsistencies.

A Copy Editor

Focuses spelling, grammar and punctuation. Looks at confused words and ensures consistency with capitalization, hyphenation and numerals.

A Proof Reader

Focuses on making sure the book is as error-free as possible (remember no one is perfect so we strive to make it the best we can). They check for typographical errors, layout and page issues.

Acquisition Editor

These editors work for publishing companies. They acquire manuscripts and evaluate the book's ability to sell.  We do NOT do that here at Swish Design and Editing.

Submission of Manuscripts

Manuscripts should be sent via email and must be submitted with NO formatting.  Any formatting will be removed from the manuscript by our editors.  The approved font is Calibre Light, size 12 font, and single spaced.
 
All authors must provide the information requested from Swish Design and Editing in an email prior to editing taking place.  This information is imperative for us to make sure we have full knowledge of what is required.
 
Rush jobs can be accepted but will attract a larger fee.  Please talk to us for an editing date to check if one is available that will meet your requirements.
 
All editing is subject to approval.  This rarely happens, but authors should be made aware that if we find that the editing process is taking longer than expected due to issues with the manuscript, or the cost will be more than the quoted amount, then the manuscript may be returned to the author for attention.
 
Dates set for editing are strictly enforced.  Any missed dates will mean that the editing may be moved to a later time slot or forfeited.  Currently, our timeslots are limited and fill fast, so if you have a date in mind please contact us as soon as you can.

Please note: we highly recommend you allow six weeks from the time your manuscript is sent to us until your publication date. This allows for any issues we may find to be settled, for formatting to take place and then for ARC distribution (most bloggers required at least fourteen days prior to publication).
 
We are here to help you so contact us with any questions, and we will be only too happy to answer them.

 

No Refunds

We pride ourselves on the work we provide, but sometimes there may be small issues that need attention after final edits.  In this case, we recommend contacting us for remedial action.  However, we cannot give refunds on deposits or payments.  There is a no refunds policy. Please read over our terms and conditions below.

This agreement must be agreed to before editing can commence.
