Book Editing and Portfolio

I offer manuscript critique,  line and copy editing along with substantial editing at affordable rates. If you wish to have your book edited, please send a brief blurb, a sample chapter and approximate work count to dhwani.swadia@gmail.com. I will then review the submission and revert with the edited sample and quotation.

What is the difference between book editing and proofreading?

Book Editing consists of going through the final draft that the author sends and correcting it in accordance with the type of book editing that is required by the author. The manuscript then goes to the author, who accepts or rejects the changes made. Once that is done, the author or the publisher prepares the book for publishing or printing. This is where a proofreader comes into play. A proofreader would go through the final draft and ensure that the book is completely error-free in all aspects from cover to content.

Terms and Conditions:

  • Once the book is published, I would require a copy of it for my records.
  • Kindly send the manuscript in entirety.
  • The style of editing that would be used for Substantive Editing would be as per the Chicago Manual of Style
  • The author would need to mention whether they wish the editing to be done as per the British or American English.
