WHY EDIT WITH US?
50% upfront, 50% when complete
We understand that, although you want to make your manuscript the very best it can be, you may not always be able to pay for editing upfront.
But that's okay!
With us, you can pay 50% of the overall cost upfront and 50% once the edit is complete!
Additionally, our price per word lowers as the word count increases.
100% control for the author
You have worked months, maybe even years, on this manuscript. We completely understand that you may be nervous about giving it to someone else to work through!
To calm your nerves, we give 100% control to the author.
Our editors use Google Docs (unless expressly asked otherwise), commenting where they feel the text needs development and/or clarification and using 'suggestions' to work on the grammar and spelling in the text. It is up to the author to heed their advice.
This is what one of our editors said about working with us:
I was so nervous about putting my book into the hands of someone I barely knew, but I am so glad I did! Softwood Self-Publishing's criticisms were truly constructive and helpful to me as a writer. - C.R. Pugh
