Ask an Editor: The answers to your questions about editing and proofreading

So, you have questions about editing and proofreading. Maybe you have written a book, but you want to know ‘what happens next’. Do you want to know how much it will cost to get your manuscript or collection of poetry edited? Or do you run a business whose documents need someone to check them over for spelling and grammar? Maybe you have a small business and you noticed errors in your marketing material AFTER you had printed off 5,000 copies.

Well, I’m here to help!

What questions would you like answered?

This is your chance to get those answers.

Here are some of the most common questions I am asked:

  • How much do you charge?
  • How long does it take to edit a manuscript?
  • How long will it take to proofread my manuscript?
  • Do you edit and proofread academic papers/theses?
  • Can you edit and/or proofread PDF files?
  • Can we have a face-to-face meeting?
  • What are your business hours?
  • Where are you located?
  • What is the difference between editing and proofreading, aren’t they the same?

I want you to put your questions in the Comments section of this post (or you can email me using my Contact Me page) and I will answer all the questions (including those I’ve listed above) in future posts.

So, what would you like to know?
