Here’s how it works:
- We’ll start with an initial conversation to get scope of the book (face-to-face or by phone).
- We’ll respond with a chapter outline and tentative schedule (including introduction, Table of Contents, About the Author, front and back cover copy).
- We’ll proceed with regular (weekly? as convenient to all concerned) drafts based on phone interviews (approximately one hour/chapter) and/or written material submitted by the author
- We will respond with a transcribed and manuscript in WORD one chapter at a time.
- We will finally provide a composite manuscript in WORD, based on Associated Press Stylebook or the Chicago Manual of Style, written and edited for copy editing technical elements such as grammar, typos, punctuation and spelling.
- Our estimate includes two rounds of author’s revisions. (The first round focusing on strengthening the content; the second on fine-tuning technical elements.)
- Our estimate includes headings and assumes a particular number of words.
- Additional services may be included, such as:
Developmental editing, Research, Preparation of Index, Turning manuscript into a book.
