Larry, I just received the printed copies of my book. They look great. I can't tell you enough what a great job you did on the layout and design. You hit the nail on the head. As a novice, I appreciate all you did to guide me through this process. Again, thanks, will see you again in the future.

Editing & Proofreading

Superior Book Productions provides complete editing and proofreading services to fit your budget and project requirements. Praise for Superior Book Productions editing service.

We will perform light, moderate, or heavy editing as needed.

We need to see the manuscript first and then provide you a quote based on the level of editing required.

All quotes are based on word count and level of editing difficulty. However, a basic pricing guideline is:

  • Proofreading: about 1 cent per word.
  • Basic editing: about 2 cents per word.
  • Heavy editing: about 4 cents a word.

For book length manuscripts, we will provide a free sample of the first 5 pages of the manuscript.

We will edit the manuscript on paper, or in microsoft word using the tracking changes feature, depending on your preference.

There is a $25.00 minimum charge for editing services, regardless of length.

Book Reviews

Why wait months for your local newspaper or one of the big review publications to review your book? Will they even give you a review? Why rely on friends to post reviews on Amazon?

You NEED a quality review from a professional. Praise for Superior book reviews.


Author Interviews

After readers finish your book, they want to know more about the person who wrote it and how the author came up with his or her ideas. Some readers will want to know more about the book before they read it. The Solution? An Author Interview.

Superior Book Productions conducts written author interviews, which will be posted on our website and on ezine articles. Contact us today to arrange for a written interview. To read previous author interviews, click on our Author Interviews page under the FOR READERS section.

I had no idea how much I was getting when I brought my book to Tyler Tichelaar!  Within 24 hours, I felt like he was my personal friend, who truly cared about MY BOOK!  He is a magician when it comes to editing … I still wake up every day grateful that I was so lucky to find him.  His services didn’t stop once my book was published (in fact they still haven’t!). When I think about the time he spent (still spends) with me …and the speed at which he responds, I can’t fathom that he has other clients!
