How does the process work?

You supply your manuscript in Word, Pages or as a PDF file following purchase of this product. Submissions without a valid purchase will not be opened as they will be considered to be spam. Kissed Off Creations Ltd do not publish titles that we receive without a valid order. An email address will be sent to you with your order confirmation, please submit your manuscript to this address.

Your manuscript will be opened within 24 hours, and we will let you know if the file is corrupted or any other problems with the file. We recommend you keep a backup of the file in a secure location following submission. Depending on scheduling and level of service requested, you will receive the first draft within 3-7 working days. PDF files will be converted to Word for ease of editing and tracking changes. If you use a different text editor, please let us know at submissions stage.

File amendments

Where amends are necessary, these will be tracked in our working file so you can see where changes have occurred. Where content is recommended, this will be noted also in the edited file in [] marks. These are suggestions to improve your manuscript only, if you feel they do not add to your content then please remove them. Where you make changes post proofing, please track these changes also for our ease of reference. If there are any amends you do not necessarily agree with, please ask us before removing them.

Book Review

If you order our Trial Run editing product, you will be issued a book review 3-5 days following submission. This report will cover the following points:

  • Spelling and grammar
  • Ease of reading
  • Perceived intended audience based on your content
  • Target genres
  • Formatting suggestions
  • Content review
  • Recommendations
  • Barriers to publication

We do not include this as part of our The Editor option as we would be too close to the content to give you a new reader’s opinion.

Selecting your package

Our editing packages are created based on your needs and the length of your book. Please select from the options above to place your order based on what you need us to do, and the anticipated length of your book. Please allow for extra pages if your book still has content to be added and it will need additional rounds of revisions. We would recommend going up a category where you are close to page number limits. These packages are independent of our Book Module Package. If you wish to add Trial Run or The Editor to your Module Package, please call for pricing (The Basics forms our Edit module). If this product is ordered at the same time as modules, it will be assumed that it is for a DIFFERENT manuscript. If you have more than one manuscript, please order multiple quantities of this product in the size for each manuscript. At the time of submitting your manuscripts, please clarify which product is for which manuscript.
