DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES:
*MANUSCRIPT EVALUATION – ($85/per 1st 75 pages; ea additional page is $.75 cents)
A review of your manuscript, which will identify weak points and other issues to make your manuscript better BEFORE you submit to publishers, or before you spend time and money to self-publish. THIS IS NOT AN EDIT OR PROOF. After having read your submitted manuscript pages entirely, you are presented with a summation of your work. Although you may elect to not utilize any other services offered by 4WillsPub below, a Manuscript Evaluation is invaluable from a trusted and avid reader, such as the kind you’ll get from a partner of 4WillsPub. You want an honest opinion of your work before you introduce it to the public? Ensure that it’s a reputable one. Our belief is that if you can’t write a good story, you can’t very well appreciate one in the same manner as those with “trained and skilled eyes” would.
*MANUSCRIPT EDITING ONLY- ($3.05/per pg/double spaced)
We edit for style, sentence structure, sentence clarity, word choice, and tone. Our editing process entails making suggestions and changes that will greatly improve the quality of your manuscript, as well as the readability and tone. Language will be crisper, sharper and clearer.
-Manuscript Editing improves the quality of your writing and makes your writing better. Here is what you can expect from a 4WillsPub Edit:
1) Your language use will be enhanced;
2) Errors and inconsistencies in sentences removed;
3) Sentence clarity;
4) Overall improvement of your writing (if need be), which in the end, makes for a more comfortable read for your audience.
If we find that your manuscript has surpassed the need for editing and proofing and is in need of ghostwriting service instead, which means we are having to basically re-write the entire story to turn it into a professional, marketable and enjoyable read, we will notify you at that stage, of any cost changes, so that you can determine whether or not you’d like to move ahead with your project. We have not had this issue arise yet, but have noticed a project or two heading in this direction, so we are having to adjust our policy accordingly.
*MANUSCRIPT PROOFREADING ONLY – ($1.98/per pg/double spaced)
We proof for spelling errors and proper punctuation usage.
-Proofreading is the final check of your manuscript to ensure that it is error-free and as close to perfection as possible BEFORE you publish. Here is what you can expect from a 4WillsPub Proofread:
1) Elimination of spelling grammar and typos;
2) Proper punctuation usage;
3) Proper use of words that sound alike, but have different meanings…such as their, there and they’re;
4) Elimination of inconsistent terminology. (i.e. If you begin your story using the salutation ‘Miss’ for a particular character, all throughout your manuscript when referring to that character, the salutation ‘Miss’ will be used and not Ms. or Mrs.)
*MANUSCRIPT EDITING & PROOFING COMBO – ($4.50/per pg/double-spaced)
*MANUSCRIPT FORMATTING: E-book and/or Print (contact for pricing)

*Basic Copy-editing – $25 – $40/per hour at a pace of 5-10 pages
Involves reviewing and correcting text, grammar, spelling, and punctuation. We check for consistency, redundancy and the proper use of words, ensuring that the proper tense remains throughout the manuscript.
**WE DO NOT FACT CHECK STATISTICS AND SOURCES**
*Heavy Copy-editing – $35 – $50/per hour at a pace of 3-5 pages
A much more intensive review of your work. We include all that goes along with our Basic Copy-edit, but also adding things that might have been left out, re-writing sections of your manuscript to make it flow better, which will, in turn, make it a much better read.
We do understand that editing/proofing can represent a significant portion of your editing budget and because of that, we are happy to offer installment payment plans to help you cover this most important expense.
