“Books are many things: lullabies for the weary, ointment for the wounded, armor for the fearful, and nests for those in need of a home.” – Glenda Millard
At Triskele Editorial, we are uniquely placed to see the value and healing in your written words. We’re here to help you make the most of your literary goals.
Whether you plan to self-publish, work with a traditional publisher, or need some help fleshing out your work, we can assist you wherever you are in the writing process.
While we can work within most categories, we specialize in the following:
- alternative healing/medicine
- new age philosophy/ideas
- health and wellness
- science fiction
We offer the following services, which can be engaged separately or combined, depending on your needs:
Also known as a light edit, copyediting is done near the end of the publishing process. It focuses on grammar, spelling, punctuation, fact-checking, etc. I won’t make any changes to your style, but I will flag and query anything that doesn’t make sense or is confusing. I may suggest a word change here or there, but there won’t be any rewriting.
Also known as a deep edit, this is done before copyediting. This kind of edit will suggest changes to style. I may help you reword sentences or sections, check for POV and tense consistency, and address tone and mood of your writing. I’ll ask questions—known as queries—and will make suggestions. Line edits catch the things you stopped seeing after the third (or fourth, or fifth) draft.
This is the last step before your publisher hits Print. Usually done once the book has gone through the design process, I am given the galleys (usually in PDF form) for one last look. I’m looking to find missing or incorrect punctuation, misspelled or misused words, or anything else that has slipped through the other rounds of editing. I’m also checking the layout of the text to ensure there is no awkward orphans or widows, stacks in the rag, or other fancy publishing terms for “this doesn’t look right.”
Pricing varies depending on the scope of your project, so I encourage you to get in touch so we can discuss your needs. If you are curious as to what editorial and writing services generally run, you can check out the EFA Rates Page and it will give you an idea of what to expect with any editor you contact.
