Christianity Every Day offers editing services for Christian and family friendly publications, including web pages. We offer three levels of editing and all editing is done electronically. That means you write it and then send us your formatted Microsoft Word document and we will do a very basic grammar and spelling correction all the way up to a comprehensive edit. The choice is yours. Choose the plan that fits your need and let us know when we can get started. If you do not have an electronic copy of your manuscript we can help with that too. See “Manuscript Typing” below.
We will provide you with a free quote for your editing project and may require that you pay 100% of the fees in advance. Let us know how we can help, fill out the contact form at the bottom of this page. Sales tax will be added to all quotes.
Level 1 – Basic Grammar & Spelling Fix ($0.017 per word)
This will help to prepare an already well-structured manuscript or web article (blog) for publication. This is a basic proofread and will immediately correct grammar and spelling errors. Level 1 does not include rewrites or restructuring for manuscripts but may include basic formatting for web articles (blogs). We consider this a first round edit for manuscripts and a final edit for web articles (blogs). This service is complete once the grammar & spelling fixes are made to a copy of the manuscript and returned to the author or in the case of a web article (blog), this service is complete once the article (blog) is reviewed, corrected and returned to the author for publishing or published directly to the web by the editor.
Level 2 – Quick Proof & Edit ($0.03 per word)
This is a manuscript for feedback with a proofread/copyedit/line edit which includes grammar and spelling fixes as well as improved word choice and rewrite/restructure if necessary. Grammar and spelling corrections are made immediately however this is a more comprehensive edit than Level 1 as it includes the rewrite/restructure options. All notes for improvements will be highlighted as suggestions, leaving the original manuscript intact until the author reviews for choice to rewrite or leave “as is”. This service is complete once the suggestions are returned to the author. The author is then free to incorporate or ignore suggestions at will.
Level 3 – Comprehensive Edit ($0.05 per word)
This is a manuscript for feedback with a proofread/copyedit/line edit which includes grammar and spelling fixes as well as improved word choice and rewrite/restructure if necessary. In addition Level 3 includes a final proof read after the author reviews and chooses how to proceed with suggestions from the editor. Essentially there are two rounds to this level of editing (1) Immediate grammar & spelling fixes that are completed by the editor at the editor’s discretion as well as incorporation of rewrites and restructures as agreed upon by editor and author, and (2) The editor’s final proofread. This service is complete once the edited manuscript has been returned to the author. The author is then free to send the manuscript to a printer at will.
Back Cover Teaser (Short Synopsis)
Christianity Every Day is available to craft a “teaser” for the back cover of your book. This is a short approximately 100 word summary of your book that is designed to draw the potential purchaser in to read your book. This teaser can also be used on purchasing websites as a short synopsis to advertise your book. The cost for the original and cleverly crafted teaser is a flat fee of $50 when included with another editing package or $125 as a separate service since a first pass of your book is required to craft the teaser.
Book Proposal Synopsis (Long)
Christianity Every Day is available to write your long book synopsis that you will use when you are submitting your book to publishers and/or marketing services. This is a three or four page snapshot of your book and it basically tells your story beginning to end without all the fluff. We will be sure to write it in a standard format that is most acceptable in the marketplace. The fee for the long synopsis writing service is calculated in relation to the length of the manuscript as follows:
- For manuscripts up to 100,000 words in length the fee is $150,
- For 100,000 to 150,000 words $170 and
- For 150,000 to 200,000 words $200.
If you have a typewritten or handwritten manuscript that you need converted to an edit ready Microsoft Word file we can do that for you. Pricing for typing and conversion as well as terms of service are as follows:

If you need it faster than that we will charge an “express charge” for a 5 day turnaround.
