The Pre-Publishing and Manuscript Editing Service
Are you looking for a novel editor? If you are now at the point where you are looking for proofing services, then The Book Editorial Expert is here to help you.
What are pre-publishing and manuscript editing?
The pre-publishing edit is an essential requirement for any author. During this stage, I will conduct a thorough review of your manuscript, correcting any errors or layout problems. This ensures that your book is ready for publication.
It is unusual for a book to get to the pre-publication stage without a few remaining errors. Editing requires a human touch, and some mistakes can still slip through. The design can also cause issues, with headings, footnotes and paragraph spacing potentially being formatted inconsistently or incorrectly.
I will thoroughly review your manuscript, examining indents, line spaces, end of line word breaks, the chronology of page numbers, running heads and alignment. This is a comprehensive editorial of your entire manuscript, transforming it into a professional book that is ready for publication.

Her input included single line edits, helping me to a better understanding of my characters, highlighting inconsistencies in character and plot, and pointing out phrases which just sounded clunky or plain wrong! She seemed to really understand what I was aiming at with my story, and helped to pull out the drama and emotions. She did not hand me the answers to problems, but expected me to find them within me, and within the story itself. This was very empowering.
All of these things have helped me to write a much better book and made me more aware as a writer.
But aside from Shelley’s keen eye and literary know how, it was lovely working with her because she really seemed to understand the emotional side of being a writer. I appreciated her perspective and looked forward to her constructive, insightful and encouraging feedback. I always had the feeling that she cared, and that I mattered, and that made me feel good about my writing.
I would wholeheartedly recommend her services to anyone who has a desire to improve.”
