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.  I offer a free sample edit to authors, which helps me provide a firm and fair quote.


$1,000 to $2,000

Based on seventy-five thousand words. The rate depends on the length and condition of the manuscript. 



$1,500 to $3,000

Nonfiction requires additional editing time because of the fact checking involved, especially if you have extensive end notes or a lengthy bibliography.
