Content Editing                                                    3¢

  • The most detailed part of this edit is the line edit. A line edit uses deletions, shifts in words, phrases, or sentences, to improve the prose and its overall effect. Track changes in Word are used so you can clearly see the editor’s changes and accept, reject, or modify them. Line edits improve the flow, pacing, and polish of your manuscript.

  • Line edits may:

  • Trim words, phrases, or sentences that are extraneous and do not contribute to the story

  • Establish a good rhythm by rearranging passages and suggesting new passages

  • Tighten dialogue, point out inconsistencies, tonal shifts, and unnatural phrasing

  • Suggest changes to the prose when the momentum of the narrative is disrupted

  • Add words or phrases that clarify or enhance your meaning.

  • Checks for and corrects errors in grammar, spelling, syntax, and punctuation.

  • Checks for technical consistency in spelling, capitalization, font usage, numerals, hyphenation. For example, is it e-mail on page 26 and email on page 143? Or do you use both British and American English spelling variations interchangeably, such as favourite vs. favorite?

  • Checks for continuity errors and makes sure that all loose ends are tied.

  • Checks for factually incorrect statements. This is a necessary part of the copyediting process for non-fiction manuscripts, such as historical pieces and memoirs. The copyeditor must check if the facts in your manuscript are accurate and if the names and dates are correct.

  • Checks for potential legal liability. The copyeditor verifies that your manuscript does not libel others.

  • Checks for inconsistency within the story. This includes character description, plot points, and setting. Does each character stay true to his own description throughout the story? Are there conflicting descriptions of the house? For example, have you described the setting as “a yellow brick home” on one page but “a weathered wooden home” on another page?

Proofreading                                                    1¢/word

  • In publishing, proofreading happens after the manuscript has been printed. A final copy of the manuscript, or proof, is then examined by a professional proofreader.

  • The proofreader’s job is to check for quality before the book goes into mass production. He or she takes the original edited copy and compares it to the proof, making sure that there are no omissions or missing pages. The proofreader corrects awkward word or page breaks.

  • While he or she may do light editing (such as correcting inconsistent spelling or hyphenations), the professional proofreader is not a copyeditor. If too many errors are cited, he or she may return the proof for further copyediting.

  • Professional proofreading is required by traditional publishers as a quality assurance measure before printing off a mass quantity of books. Many self-publishing authors who have had their manuscript professionally copyedited skip the proofread. If you’re on a budget, you might try to proofread your own work, since there won’t be as many errors to contend with at that stage.

Audiobook Production

  • Your finished manuscript goes through the following process

    • Your manuscript is read so the voice talent gets to know your characters, understand the scenes, builds a flow of your dramatic arc and begins to form characterizations to bring your words to life.​

    • After a complete reading, the voice talent records each chapter in one session, to keep the audio quality consistent throughout the chapter. Lines are read and re-read to make sure they match the specific scene, character's voice and personality.

    • Each chapter is meticulously edited to remove extraneous noise, to ensure consistent sound quality throughout the recording and maintain continuity in the editing process.

    • As the author, you review these edited files, taking note of pacing or inflection issues, scene expression and character mannerism. These notes are used in the next phase of production.

    • The voice talent, reviews the editing notes and seamlessly makes the appropriate corrections in the edited audio. 

    • The final audio files are reviewed a second time to ensure the edits meet the authors expectations.

    • The approved audio files are mastered to remove room noise, additional audio artifacts such as pops and clicks that make their way onto the audio recording.

    • Once mastered, the files are ready to distribution, either to the JumpCard® Catalog or to another online distribution site.

Audiobook Production - Costs

  • Royalty Share - 30% Voice Talent Fee / JumpCard® (Jumpmaster Press™ Authors only)

    • Your book will be produced using the standard above at no initial cost to the author.  Once your Audiobook is produced you will receive a copy of the Mastered Files for distribution as you see fit (Audible, iTunes, etc.). Your Audiobook will be included in our JumpCard® Catalog and featured on the Jumpmaster Press™ website. 

    • When you order your JumpCard® stock, 30% of the profit from the Suggested Retail Price of $24.95 will be applied to the order per card as a royalty share to the voice talent. 

Option Two:

  • $250 Per Finished Hour
