The book publishing industry has altered almost beyond recognition in the last 20 years, largely driven by evolutions in technology and subsequent changes in reader habits. E-readers and other devices mean that reader consumption is very different now. We at Fingertips have embraced the evolutions in book editing services.
While this initially presented challenges for the industry, it presented opportunities for smaller, niche and independent book publishers and individual authors who wanted to explore self-publishing.
The change in content consumption has also led to readers expecting a quicker and more prolific output from their favourite authors. But the best author would admit that their work is nothing without input from their book editor. As a result, the need for freelance book editors is greater than ever to enable this different way of working in the ever more competitive publishing industry.
Our freelance book editors can work with you to sense-check, proofread and fine edit your manuscript for publication or submission to a publisher.
They can help you refine your writing and ensure that your creative intent is felt across every page.
Format is not a problem, we can help pair you with an online book editor if that is how your work will be published.
We can work across all genres of fiction, non-fiction and academic writing. Whether you require booking editing services for novels, a short story, script, poetry, children’s book or textbook, we can tailor our editing services and provide a quotation to your suit individual requirements.
We will check your manuscript or book for spellings, grammar, punctuation and layout. We will ensure commas are used in the correct places, speech marks, apostrophes, semi colons and correct use of wording. We will add comments and suggestions if we think there are repetitions, where we think improvements can be made and suggestions. We will suggest a structure and layout that is easy to read, neat and clear. We will check paragraphs are in the correct order and place, suggest deleting repetitions and inform you of our ideas.
