Editing Services

The world’s finest authors rely on skilled editors, because the best writing always benefits from a good editor’s second set of eyes. Whether your work needs proofreading or a deeper editing intervention, Blitzprint’s editors can make valuable contributions to your self-publishing project. We partner with editing professionals and publishing proofreaders who have the insight, command of language and literary skills to help you impress book reviewers and the media. Experienced with both veteran and first-time authors, our editors can help enhance your book’s readability, repair story and structural weaknesses, improve characterizations, sharpen dialogue, address grammatical wobbles—or simply polish your back-cover text.

Copy editing and Proofreading

Our publishing proofreaders scour each manuscript line-by-line in search of core fumbles that raise the loudest objections by the average reader—spelling, punctuation, agreement and typographical errors, for example. Usually conducted immediately prior to printing, a proofread is a quick and cost-effective way to improve the flow of words on the page. For added lustre, our copyediting provides a second level of intervention to tackle the fumbles that obscure clarity. Copy edits zero in on sentence-level inconsistencies in style, grammar, punctuation and diction. Contact a Blitzprint Client Support Specialist for more information. Once we’ve determined the scope of your edit, we’ll prepare a detailed quote.

Content Editing

To achieve a deeper level of document repair, our content editing for self publishers addresses the most complex technical issues in writing; notably, the logical weaknesses that undermine meaning. Where copyediting focuses on the sentence level, content editing examines manuscripts on a larger scale, identifies and repairs offending passages, strengthens manuscripts and delivers concise, compelling and convincing reads. Contact a Blitzprint Client Support Specialist for more information. Once we’ve determined the scope of your edit, we’ll prepare a detailed quote.

Developmental Editing

For writers who want greater individualized creative support, our developmental edit is an ideal solution. We’ll conduct a rigorous strategic analysis to diagnose weaknesses and flag opportunities to strengthen core structural elements and help solve creative impasses—minor and major. The analysis will be delivered in the form of a detailed written report. Contact a Blitzprint Client Support Specialist for more information. Once we’ve determined the scope of your edit, we’ll prepare a detailed quote.
