Some editors offer services with descriptions that mystify people who are not in the publishing business. Line editing, light editing, heavy editing, copy editing.

At jcannonbooks, you don't get half measures or surface treatments. I'll find the grammar and technical errors, suggest remedies for gaps in context, tell you where things bog down, and point out factual flubs. It's all inclusive.

You will know what to expect before I begin. If your manuscript varies from average length or would require more work than usual, the amount would be adjusted. I offer a free sample edit to authors, which helps me provide a firm and fair quote.



The rate is based on a manuscript of up to 75,000 words.
