Editorial Services

Tourmaline & Quartz is a traditional indie publishing company, but we also offer affordable paid services for independent authors who wish to publish on their own.

Editing and Proofreading

Line Editing $0.006 per word
A thorough look at each line of your manuscript to ensure your sentences are structured properly, the meaning and tone are clear, the tense and point of view are correct, and pacing and flow are natural. Spelling, grammar and punctuation errors will be fixed but are not the focus.

Proofreading– $0.003 per word
A careful sweep of your manuscript to clean up spelling, grammar, punctuation and formatting errors. Usually the last set of eyes on a manuscript that has already been edited.

How it works: Contact us below and tell us a little bit about your project (genre, word count, deadline, etc.). Though T&Q publishes sci-fi and fantasy, we will edit, and are familiar with, most genres.

If requested, we will do a free sample edit of up to 1,000 words which you can include in a Word doc in your initial email.
