Subject Matter Accepted for Editing:
Projects are accepted on a case by case basis. There are genres (erotica, the occult, etc) that will not be considered for editing. New Season Design reserves the right to not accept a project if we believe we are not the right “fit” for that project. Before accepting a project for editing, we must review a rough draft of the material.
Submission of Material
Material should be submitted via email as a Microsoft Word file.
Note to Mac users: You can submit your Pages files as Word documents by clicking File>Export and selecting the Word option to save your file.
We will keep your material and private information confidential.
After the editing is finished, it is your responsibility to keep copies of rough drafts and edited materials for your future reference.
We allow a minimum of ten business days for each project. Actual length of time will be determined by our current project schedule, and the length / complexity of your project.
You assume full responsibility for the content of your project. If you use quotes, references, or other information from outside sources, you are responsible to give the proper legal acknowledgement for that material / information.
New Season Design and its editor(s) assume no responsibility for your content and we are not responsible to verify sources, facts, data, etc., that you use in your project.
Our editing is done using Microsoft Word’s Track Change feature. We recommend you use Track Change to accept/reject editing recommendations.
Final acceptance or rejection of our recommendations is your choice and responsibility. You will not hold New Season Design and its editor(s) responsible for errors or omissions in the service provided.
Editing is not formatting and does not include the formatting of bibliography and references or conversion to Kindle or other e-book formats.
This basic proofreading service checks the punctuation and grammar, and makes minor typographical corrections.
This more detailed service includes the above proofread edit plus makes suggestions to enhance the readability of your project, such as rearranging and rewording for clarity and consistency of word usage.
Proofread Edit: $45.00 for up to 5,000 words; $.005 – $.009 for each additional word.
Readability Edit: $80.00 for up to 5,000 words; $.010 – $.016 for each additional word.
(Prices are for one edit only. If you request a second edit, there will be an additional fee.)
Full payment must be received prior to the scheduled start date of the editing.
We do not offer refunds once editing begins. You are paying for a service which we supply.
If you cancel the project before the agreed start date, a refund will be issued.
If we cancel a project, a refund will be issued.
Having your project edited does not imply the success of your project. New Season Design and the editor(s) assume no liability for the content of the edited project, or for the actions or statements of you, as our client.
