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 highly recommend SBP.  I am a first time author who self published my book.  Working with both Tyler and Larry was an incredible experience.  They took the lead and brought my manuscript  to life.  This was a huge process involving editing, intrior book layout, creating a cover, building my website, loading all my files for the e-book, hard cover and paperback.  The end result was nothing but incredible!  I could have not have done this without them.  The timing of getting things done was right on schedule and the work was superb!
