It examines all the elements of your writing and any issues related to flow and clarity. Your target audience is kept in mind. This option also includes copy edit (line-by-line editing) and proofreading.

Line-by-line editing plus proofreading
Checks for spelling, grammar, corrects sentence structure, overall look and consistency, locates missing and added words which often happens and are overlooked. Also includes suggestions if find areas that may be confusing or unclear to the reader. With this editing option we fine-tune your book. The purpose of this editing is to ensure that the language supports the writer’s intent — while also creating the most clear and readable version of their book.

 $.03/word or $350 whichever is more
(For example: $600 for a 20 000 word document/anything 11 700 words or less is $350)

“I have just completed publishing my first book with Fay Thompson & Big Moose Publishing. This process has been a
breeze with Fay’s help and expertise in this area. She has walked me through the process and made the entire process enjoyable. Her compassion, help, ideas, and great editing skills have made this process fast and easy. Fay is driven to move this process along to get the book published professionally and on time. I have enjoyed her help and will look forward to publishing my next book with Big Moose Publishing very soon.” – Gina Strole, Author of Fear Breakthrough

“Thinking about publishing a book and not sure where to start? I highly recommend you connect with Fay Thompson at Big Moose Publishing!

In 2019 I embarked upon my first collaboration book project and chose Big Moose Publishing to handle the details involved in self publishing through Ingram and Amazon. That was definitely a wise choice! There were many times during the process that I felt overwhelmed or frustrated and may have abandoned the project without Fay’s unwavering support. She was always patient, helpful and willing to answer my million questions. She knew when to reach out with support and when to let me figure things out for myself. Fay was my guiding light and I am not sure I would have completed the project without her. Thank you Fay and Big Moose Publishing.  ” – Bonnie Bogner, Author of Hope for Humanity
