Need A Professional Book Editing &
Proofreading Expert?

Do you know that poor grammar, spelling and punctuation are a MAJOR turn-off for readers and publishers, not to mention plot holes, clarity of writing and poor storyline structure?

Many self-published authors, bloggers and creative writers think these things can be ironed out later. Your written work needs to be free of errors in order to gain the attention of readers and publishers. Otherwise, you’d be wasting your precious time writing a piece that will be going nowhere any time soon.

Gone are the days when writers will just sit in front of the computer, press ‘publish’ and see sales and reviews start pouring in; it’s not that simple today. The publishing industry is fast growing and the competition is outrageously high.

Statistically speaking, a reader’s attention span is less than 3 minutes when it comes to reading something.
This means that you have less than 3 minutes to capture the attention of a reader. If you cannot hook your reader with your writing within 3 minutes, then they will most probably turn to another book, article, blog etc., as will be the case with any publisher you submit your work to.

You will lose any potential sales, good reviews or whatever you are trying to achieve through your journey as a writer. You would have also wasted your precious time without yielding anything in return, whether it be of monetary value, recognition or for gratification purposes.

This is where STRIKE-THROUGH comes in…

Just like our name sounds, we go through your work and ‘strikethrough’ every incorrect spelling, grammar usage, punctuation and indeed, every single thing that will hurt whatever you are seeking to achieve with your books, blog posts and other written material.

We know what may be going through your mind right now…

Why don’t I just edit it myself?

Don’t do it!

Seriously. Don’t just rely on self-editing.

​There are a number of reasons as to why an editor is essential, even if you have done a good job of editing your own work.

How can anyone else find anything wrong with this great piece of literary work you’ve written? You may feel that you have been careful with your writing and spelling, and so editing will just be a waste of time.

Sometimes, that prideful thinking can be the downfall of a potentially great book or any other written material. You need to truly understand the purpose of having your writing edited to ensure your written work receives the attention it deserves.

Good writers know editing is essential. They wouldn’t disregard that fact. The truth is, if you try to be your own editor, you are making a grave mistake. You are more likely than anyone else to not see your own mistakes. That’s right; you can actually read your own mistakes over and over again and never really notice they’re staring right at you!

The following are crucial factors that can affect the ​readability of any written material:

1. You know what you want to say, and you might believe that you can communicate your thoughts effectively through your writing. However, the way you phrase your sentences may be detrimental to the way your message is being delivered and understood by the reader; your message is simply not getting across as well as it should or could be.

2. As the writer and creator of your work, you may take a look at your writing and merely see what you know should be there, rather than what is actually there.

3. The English language is full of grammatical rules that must be followed and quite a few instances where these same rules must or can be broken. Without an expert eye and extensive knowledge in such a field, it is difficult to gauge where each rule should be applied.

4. As the creator of the words that breathe life into your work, you may find yourself falling in love with your written creation. This may cause you to turn a blind eye to specific parts of your writing that have been poorly written.

5. A not only fresh, but also expert eye scrutinising your work is more than likely to pick up on crucial aspects of your writing that you will miss yourself.

​In conclusion, the READABILITY of your written material is what makes or breaks you.

This is what we do for you.

We will help you lay the foundation and framework, or the ‘nuts and bolts’ so that you can have a written piece you can be proud of.

Now, what that means is that ​we pave the way for you to be able to get great reviews and ratings, make more sales and achieve whatever it is you are seeking as a writer.

We have three packages for you to pick from: THE STRIKER, THE TRACKER and THE WRITER.

All three of them are explained below.

​SERVICES OFFERED

We offer 3 core packages:

THE STRIKER

Lay back and relax. You will receive your manuscript back with all changes already implemented in the document. You can submit it to the publisher right away without the hassle of going through the document again to accept or reject the changes made. This is the cheaper editing method (Integration method) where you place your complete trust in the editor.

The Striker package includes:

1. Proofreading:

  • Going beyond “spellcheck” to catch errors a computer might miss.
  • Ensuring zero grammatical errors, usually after a document has already been edited.

2. Line Editing:

  • Addresses the creative content, writing style, and language use at the sentence and paragraph level. The purpose of a line edit is not to comb your manuscript for errors – rather, a line edit focuses on the way you use language to communicate your story to the reader. Is your language clear, fluid, and pleasurable to read? Does it convey a sense of atmosphere, emotion, and tone? Do the words you’ve chosen convey a precise meaning, or are you using broad generalizations and clichés?

3. Substantive/Structural Editing:

  • Clarifying and/or reorganizing a manuscript for content and structure. Changes may be suggested to or drafted for the author, and may include negotiating changes.

THE WRITER

“If there’s a book you really want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” -Toni Morrison

Are you ready to become an author? You might have story ideas that keep you awake at night and you think, if I could turn this into a book, it’ll be a hit! However, you hold back because you do not have the time, or skills or experience to put your thoughts down on paper.

From stories to blogs to website content, you will be working with a skilled copywriter to bring your ideas to life on paper. All written material will be owned by you from this ghostwriting service.

The price of a ghostwriter is usually determined by the total word count required, but the amount of work including research time and the editing process are also taken into consideration. Each 50 single-spaced pages of a book manuscript contains roughly 25,000 words, about 500-530 words per page. We offer ghostwriting services for as little as $3,000 though our rate does increase in accordance to the manuscript length. We also offer a customised package according to your budgetary needs.

Your ghostwriter will work with you one-on-one through every step of the process.

The Writer package offers:

All Inclusive Writing Services: Planning, Ghostwriting, Editing, Formatting, Cover Design.

  • In-depth research and interviews if necessary to learn all about you and your book idea
  • Outlining your book and setting a writing plan; a Skype chat to determine all your writing requirements.
  • Ghostwriting original content based on your preference
  • Revisions based on your feedback and guidance
  • Copyediting to ensure your book is error-free
  • Book cover design

Let us help you put your thoughts on the page and fulfil your dream of becoming a published author!
