The human mind works in a very unusual way when it comes to reading. Take a look at the sentence below for example:
It dseno't mttaer waht oderr the lterets in a wrod are, the only irpoamtnt thing is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rhgit pclae. Tihs is bucseae the human mnid deos not raed ervey ltteer by istlef, but the word as a wlohe.
Could you read that? This goes to show that even with a sentence you've never seen before, you can still read the words as they're intended.
As an author, you're even more likely to miss errors in your own work because you know what the sentence is supposed to say. The same applies to plot holes. You may know what is going on, but have you let the readers know all the vital details? Plot holes are a lot harder to spot when you have foreknowledge of what's going on and why. That is why it is always a good idea to get someone else to read your work, and that is where the Spiderwize Editors come in.
With years of experience, Spiderwize’s Editors can not only spot the errors that you might have missed but can also offer help and advice on how to make your book the best it can possibly be.
Spiderwize offer two levels of editing and, during your free editorial evaluation, we will assess which would best suit your needs:
If your writing is of a high standard, but there are still spelling and grammar mistakes present, then we would recommend a standard proofread. This focuses purely on picking up errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation. This ensures that your book is finished to the standard readers expect from a professionally published work.
If your book is still in a fairly raw format, then you could consider a full copy-edit. As well as correcting spelling and grammar errors, the Editor will look out for sentence structure, continuity, repetition, plot holes and any other areas requiring improvement. They will make any necessary corrections and highlight any areas of the plot which need to be amended. All changes are tracked and we won't make any changes to plot details without your input. It's still your book and the final decision will always rest with you ‐ we're just helping you to give it the best start!
Once you have chosen the level of editing you require, you will be given a quote based on the length of your book and the amount of work involved. You can then either purchase this as a stand-alone service or add it to your publishing package.
