What to look for in an editor

Book Editing
Outline of our book editing service
Your Satisfaction Is Guaranteed

Editing a manuscript is a specialized service and an author requires a professional book editor rather than a generalist editor or an amateur. We employ experienced book editors who have considerable experience in the publishing industry — many have previously worked for major publishing houses. An author also requires fearless feedback to truly succeed in a competitive market and our editors know exactly what is required for a book to be successful.

Your editor will have the confidence, experience and skill to greatly improve your book. We also believe it to be important that our book editors not be anonymous.

They have a range of professional work experiences and we are happy to outline the experience of the editor you work with. We want our clients to have the utmost confidence that they are working with the right editor for them.

As well as employing experienced book editors, Global English Editing is an affordable editing option for authors.

As we are an exclusively online business , we keep our costs down and pass these savings on to our customers through lower prices. Our book editing services uniquely cater to the increasing demand for affordable editing which has been spurred by the accessibility of publishing through the e-Book market.

Please use our Price Calculator to confirm for yourself our genuinely affordable book editing rates. We understand that some authors value flexibility in the turnaround time.

Perhaps they have a looming deadline for publication, or simply do not want to wait a month or longer for the professional editing process to be completed. Therefore, authors can select the turnaround time that suits them and the price will always remain the same.

Find out more about our affordability and turnaround times on the Prices page. The professional editing process can be a daunting one for any author, especially a first time writer. Although a friend or family member may be willing to edit or proofread your novel, an experienced novel editor is much better equipped than a hobby editor to provide the editorial assistance needed to make it a publishing success.

We are a great value option for authors regardless of their publishing aspirations. We have helped authors who covet publishing success, and others whose ambitions are more niche. Every author we work with can have great sense of confidence that their work will be polished and ready for publication.

TLC prides itself on a reputation for excellence. TLC remains at the forefront of editorial provision, and continues to enjoy a high standing in the traditional industry as well as with newer platforms. We also hand-match each writer coming in with an editor we think would be best suited to the project at hand, and bring this curatorial vision to our events programme, as well as to our popular Mentoring programme, which we process on application.

We believe that writers should have access to professional editing services in order to better understand their writing and how it might sit in a constantly changing market, and give honest, professional feedback in order to help writers grow and develop their skills.

At TLC we offer manuscript assessment for writing at all levels by writers writing in English. We offer assessment for:. You can find our Reader list including biographies and specialisms here and our Fees here. TLC has established working connections with several leading publishers and agents and over the years has helped many authors get into print. For more information please see our Success Stories. However it is important to remember that getting commercially published is difficult.

All developing writers should be aware that the traditional publishing industry is very market driven and is also in a state of flux as it faces challenges from alternative online platforms. Publishers and agents can only take on books that they feel confident will result in high sales. Marketing and PR campaigns are important in generating book sales, so publishers and agents also ideally need to feel a book and its author will be easy to promote. TLC runs publishing events to help people writing understand more about the publishing industry see TLC Events and we work across all our services to help writers gain a greater sense of self-awareness around the quality of their work, and where it might fit into the market.

TLC is aware of the demands of the industry and will not make irresponsible suggestions to clients wishing to approach agents and publishers. There is no further fee to the client for this service. We are partially funded by the Arts Council England to provide a limited number of bursaried reads to high quality writers from low-income households across the UK.

You will need to contact your local regional writing development body in order to find out if they operate the scheme and if you are eligible. For details including finding your regional writing partner and how to apply please see Arts Council England Free Reads Scheme.

We are committed to match-funding a portion of our Arts Council grant — as we are not a charity we rely on new partnerships, in-kind support, donations, and sponsorship to uphold this commitment. If you feel you are in a position to offer a donation or sponsorship to support our provision of free manuscript assessment, please get in touch. Do have a look at our Mentoring page to find out more about our more intensive editorial service, our popular Chapter and Verse mentoring programme.

Chapter and Verse offers writers one-to-one support via email, with a personal writing tutor selected for you by the TLC team, and the opportunity to submit six tranches of writing up to 10, words each time over a period of 12 months, with an in-house industry day meeting with an agent and publisher, and a full manuscript assessment included within the fee.

Mentoring is for serious writers working on a book-length project and supports writers to completion of a novel, memoir, narrative non-fiction book, or collection of poetry or short stories.
