Core Editorial

Core Editorial Services

Nothing reduces the professionalism and impact of a book more than typos and grammar errors. WestBow Press Core Editorial Services provide a careful review of the very basics of your book, including grammar, spelling, punctuation, capitalization, and sentence structure. What you get is a clean, professionally-edited manuscript, and the peace of mind that comes along with knowing that your book is ready for readers.  

Editorial Assessment 

An editorial specialist will provide you with an Editorial Report on the editorial status of a portion of your manuscript (typically the first chapter or about 1,700 words), as well as a sample edit of a portion of your work.

Line Editing 

Your manuscript will be thoroughly reviewed to catch and correct any errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation, capitalization and syntax. Light recommendations on word choice and improving overall readability will also be provided.

Content Editing 

Your editor will not only review your manuscript at the Line Editing level for grammar, spelling, etc., but will also focus on restructuring sentences and streamlining the style of your work.

Content Editing Plus 

This service is ideal for manuscripts that need more work on sentence structure and grammar than Content Editing can provide.
