Professional Book Editing Services

Our book editing service has played a vital role in the success of many bestselling books. Some of the bestsellers that have benefited from our editing services include the four-part Covenant of Trust series and three-part Foundations series by award-winning author Paula Wiseman; the critically acclaimed Once Upon a Crisis by William May; Unconventional by J.J. Hebert; Out of the Darkness by Joy Stinson; High Percentage Wellness Steps by Suneel Dhand MD; and The Golden Climate in Distance Learning by Dr. Marina Kostina. The most successful MindStir Media published books were edited by qualified professional MindStir editors. Professional editing makes a serious difference!

Up until recently, our professional book editing services were only available through a few of our premium publishing packages, but now we’re offering our editing service as an a la carte option. You can now utilize our editing service and enjoy the benefits no matter how you intend on publishing your book.

How Does the Editing Process Work?

After you submit your payment, you will be assigned a professional MindStir Media book editor as well as a dedicated project manager. Your project manager will be your primary contact person, collecting your manuscript and also acting as the liaison between you and the editor. This setup streamlines the process and allows the editor to focus solely on editing and not customer service. As your manuscript is being edited, your project manager will be available five days per week to answer any of your questions. Your book editor will use “track changes” within Microsoft Word, so when your project manager provides you with the fully edited file, you’ll be able to see every single change that has been made to your manuscript. Using track changes, you’ll also be able to accept or reject each and every change. This puts the power in your hands!

How Much Does this Book Editing Service Cost?

Our price is $0.015 per word (per round of editing) for light to medium book editing. This type of editing is usually reserved for manuscripts that are already in fairly good shape and do not require any rewriting or structural changes. We will focus primarily on grammatical, punctuation, spelling and usage issues. A full-length book of 75,000 words, for instance, will be billed at $1,125.

Heavy editing is reserved for manuscripts that need light to medium editing as well as a bit of structural editing with rewrites. The price is $0.025 per word (per round of editing).

Our minimum editing charge for picture books is $200 (usually less than 2,000 words).

Since our prices vary depending on the level of editing your manuscript requires, we suggest that you fill out the form below and include as much info as possible so we’ll be able to provide you with an accurate price quote.
