Whether you are writing a short story, novel, non-fiction work, a script, screenplay or children's book and would like guidance and support, we are here to help. We use a fee based structure to provide the following services...
MANUSCRIPT ASSESSMENT

 

Avocado Books will provide an expert, market-aware appraisal and help to writers at all levels.

We will give an honest, detailed and professional overview so writers can understand where they are doing well, what is working less well and why, and how to work a manuscript into the best possible shape.

Once you are happy with the overall structure and direction of your book and have it in a completed draft, we can move onto to providing copyediting and proofreading services.

COPYEDITING

 

Copyediting is an important process which looks at spelling, punctuation and grammar and seeks to improve the overall quality of the text. 

 

Consistency, strengthening writing and corrections are the key objectives. 

 

It can involve some rewrites or areas for an author to revisit. 

 

Facts can be checked, especially if non-fiction and any possible legal issues such as libel and be addressed at this stage.

PROOF-READING

 

Proof-reading is also a vital part of the process and amounts to being a last look at the manuscript before it goes to 'press' or is uploaded onto a digital platform - ie published.

 

It is usually when the text has been 'set' into pages and is ready for print.  Any final errors of spelling, punctuation or grammar can be checked again.

 

Also any formatting, capitalisation, italicisation and hypenation can be caught and corrected.

GHOSTWRITING

 

A ghostwriter can transform your life story, idea or draft copy into a polished autobiography or work of fiction.

 

Whether it’s interviewing you extensively for your autobiography or memoir, developing your basic idea or expanding, editing or rewriting a partial or full draft, our ghostwriters will be able to project your story, message and personality. 

 

You will be able to feed off their creativity and tap into the direction they have chosen for you. 

Commissioned to create content published under a client’s name, an Avocado Books ghostwriter is paid an agreed fee in advance, based on expected time to be spent with the client and amount of content needed.
