No matter how many times you have read through your manuscript, a trained editor will be able to pick up errors that have been missed during your drafting stages. To ensure your final book is as polished as possible, we always suggest a professional edit before publishing.
We understand that no two manuscripts are the same, so our editing service is divided into 3 tiers. Each tier is completed by a qualified editor and is priced based on the level of input required. This allows you to choose the option that is best for you, your budget and your manuscript.
Option 1: Final once-over
Recommended for authors who are almost ready to publish, have already self-edited and completed extensive revisions.
Includes one full read-through to correct spelling, punctuation and grammar. Does not include further comments, feedback, or input from your editor.
Option 2: Overall tidy up
Recommended for authors who have self-edited their manuscript, require assistance with sentence structure, and would like some input from an editor.
Includes one full read-through to correct spelling, punctuation and grammar, as well as some editorial input to improve sentence structure and flow.
If needed, your editor will flag sentences that require rewriting to improve readability.
Option 3: Makeover
This service is recommended for authors who have not completed any self-editing and require extensive editorial input.
Includes one initial full read-through with in-depth editorial suggestions, feedback, and input as required.
After you have revised the initial edit, your editor will check any rewrites and provide further feedback or offer additional direction if needed.
After the revision is complete, your editor will complete an additional full read-through to correct spelling, punctuation and grammar.
Frequently Asked Questions
For many authors, self-editing can be a challenge. When you are so close to your work, it can be difficult to step back and see it objectively. As an author, you may be more focused on improving the story, characters, plot and your writing style, rather than spotting small textual errors.
A professional editor is trained to pick up errors and inconsistencies of many different types (spelling, punctuation, grammar, plot holes, character development flaws, awkward dialogue, and so on) so they are able to pick up those mistakes that commonly go unnoticed.
Our editors use the Track Changes function in Microsoft Word, which marks all changes that have been made to the original document. This allows you to visually see the changes and accept or reject them at your preference.

Loved my experience with the team at InHouse.
All the staff that covered every area for my book was quick to do their individual jobs, responded quickly to emails, happily made changes when necessary. Understood my purpose and mission for the book which gave me confidence that I chose the right publisher.
Really good all round!

Wonderful, wonderful Inhouse Publishing has so far produced two of my books, working round the clock at the last minute to make it all happen on time, as at this pre-arranged launch at Queensland Terrace in 2019. Extraordinary capable and generous, we are lucky to have them here in Queensland.

I have collaborated with InHouse Publishing for over five years now and find them to be a professional, ethical, and caring family-run self-publishing business who have helped many authors realise their publishing dreams. Highly recommended!

I engaged in-house publishing to deliver my second book the little book of Human. From the first conversation to the delivery of the product I was incredibly impressed with the care that the entire team showed towards me and in particular their willingness to understand the human behind the book. The way the process moved seamlessly from one department to the next tells me that this is a team who cares for each other, and in turn this is felt by me the customer. With book three now into concept stage I know I’ll be giving in-house publishing a call once the manuscript is done. You won’t go wrong if you engage them.

As a published author of 11 books with International and Australian publishers, I turned to In-House to get a specialist subject book produced I
could not get any agency interested in. I was so happy with the results and their professionalism I have since published 3 more books with them and will do so again. I recommend anyone who has a story they want to tell to seek some advice from In- House Publishing.

I am so thrilled that I went with InHouse Publishing to print my book. The finished product is better than I had imagined. They did the cover design, type-setting and print. Working with this team, you know you are in safe hands. They are friendly, timely, skilled and most importantly they listen. It was wonderful to collaborate with them to bring this book to life. I can't thank you all enough - Nevada, Chrisstie, Tahni, & Caroline. Their processes are down to a fine art!
