Quality editing at indie-friendly rates.





Who We Are

Hello, KBoards! I'm Katie, one half of Royal Editorial. My colleague Justin and I are both trained, professional full-time editors with 3+ years of experience each. Click here to learn more about us.

We offer the following services:





What makes Royal Editorial the right choice for my book?
  • We offer a FREE 1000-word sample edit. This helps you assess whether we're the right fit for your book and allows us to provide you with a personalized quote specific to your book.
  • We're professional and experienced. We both hold certificates in publishing from respected Canadian schools.
  • We're also authors, so we know how hard it can be to put your story into someone else's hands. We edit thoughtfully and will always respect your unique vision.

See below for details on copy editing and proofreading, our most popular services for indie authors:





Copy Editing

A copy edit will best benefit manuscripts in need of an extra bit of polish, including refinement of stylistic elements such as phrasing, word choice, and clarity. While this is a very hands-on type of edit, the editor will prioritize maintaining the author's narrative voice. A copy edit consists of two full read-throughs of your manuscript, during which the editor will:

  • Correct all issues in grammar, punctuation, and usage
  • Rework any awkward constructions to ensure prose is clear, concise, and idiomatic
  • Ensure consistency in style and usage (adherence to the Chicago Manual of Style; adherence to the Oxford Canadian Dictionary for Canadian English and the Merriam-Webster Dictionary for American English) as well as in character and place names
  • Highlight any blatant factual errors, potential copyright infringements, or potential issues in legality
  • Eliminate any redundancies and resolve any ambiguities in phrasing
We charge $25 per hour. A copy edit for an average 70,000-word novel typically takes us between 28 - 56 hours ($700 - $1400).





Proofreading

Our proofreading service is designed for manuscripts that already have one foot out the door. It's your last line of defence against sneaky homonyms, tense errors, and other finicky details. A proofread consists of one complete read-through of your manuscript, during which the editor will:

  • Correct typographical errors and egregious grammar, punctuation, and usage errors
  • Catch any last-minute errors that have been overlooked or introduced during revisions
  • Ensure consistent spelling of names and terminology
We charge $25 per hour. A proofread for an average 70,000-word novel typically takes us between 14 - 28 hours ($350 - $700).




Click here to submit a 1000-word sample from the middle of your manuscript so that we may recommend an appropriate level of edit for your book and provide you with a quote.

Interested in a different service? See our Services and Rates page.

    Hi Katie, that's a great price. What kind of turnaround time do you give for a 60-70k word novel?

    Hi GP. Turnaround time for a copyedit of a book that size would be around a week and a half. :)

    For proofreading and copyediting, I work in all genres.

    For substantive edits, the feedback I offer on plot, character, pacing, and themes is valuable across genres, but I specialize in science fiction and fantasy. If you primarily need insight into specific procedural tropes, for example, we may not be the best fit.

    Greetings, Katie! You're welcome to promote your business and website here in the Writers' Cafe.

    Now that you have an official thread, you'll want to add your listing to our Yellow Pages, found here: https://www.kboards.com/yp/. The listing is free to KB members and is completely self-service; you can add and edit your listing from the page. More information on our Yellow Pages listing can be found here.

    In your thread here, we ask that the same basic rules be followed as we have for authors in the Book Bazaar: you may have this one thread about your service and must post to it rather than start a new thread each time. New threads about the service will be removed. Please bookmark this thread so that you can find it again when you want to post.

    You may not make back-to-back posts to the thread within seven days. If someone responds (as I'm doing with this post), you may reply to them, but otherwise you must wait seven days. Any pattern of posting designed to artificially bump your thread to the top of the forum is prohibited. Please note that very short or (one- or two-word) posts with no meaningful information are discouraged and may be deleted at the moderators' discretion.

    Lastly, your posts and images will need to meet our "forum decorum" guidelines, which is the case for every member.

    You may find that members ask searching questions -- about how your service works, for example, or what they will get for their money, or whether your service adheres to Amazon's terms of service. Such "vetting" is a common here and can be rigorous.

    Note that members are allowed to provide civil and honest feedback about your service in this thread. This feedback may include criticisms as well as kudos. You may respond to criticism in a civil manner, but name-calling, badgering, accusations of lying, and other breaches of forum decorum can lead to loss of vendor posting privileges.

    Hi all! Thought I'd share a testimonial from one of my summer clients:

    "I'm so happy I found Katie! She has a great eye for detail and found mistakes that I would never have caught. I also learnt a lot about grammar from her edits, which has helped make my writing stronger. I feel so much more confident putting my book out in the world now that I've had a fantastic copyedit! I definitely recommend working with Katie on your next writing project!"

    - Kayla Kurin, Author of Where Can I Find Wifi?

    Booking for September.

    I just wanted to say thank you to Katie. She did  a great job editing my first two novels. She was great, with a fantastic eye for detail and consistency.

    Best of all she respected all my deadlines.

    I would highly recommend working with her on your next project  :)

      Katie recently edited one of my manuscripts, and I strongly recommend her services. I've worked with several great editors, and Katie is among the best.

      I found her rates very affordable. She books in advance and sticks to the schedule--my book was edited in a week. First half of payment is due up front to book the slot, with the second half after the edit is complete.

      Katie has a strong eye for details and consistency and saved me from making several embarrassing mistakes left over from my personal edit. There was one instance where I used the wrong character's name and another where I referenced a one-eyed character using his eyes (plural). She was very good about consistency throughout the manuscript and also typed up a series style guide for me!

      Katie did a great job! If you're looking for a copyeditor, I strongly recommend her, and I hope to use her services again.

      I am usually pretty reserved/shy when it comes to partaking in conversations or threads, hence why most will likely not recognize my name. I did want to stop in here, though, and offer my recommendation to use Katie as an editor. Not only is she efficient with her time slots, she provides wonderful notes and has a great attention for detail.

      I published my first novel this year in August and had hired a previous editor for the book However, after I received the copy back, I changed many aspects of the novel itself, and practically undid a lot of the prior editors work. A complete newbie move, but there you have it. I dont recommend doing that. ;) The book itself far exceeded my expectations, but there were a LOT of comments about the poor editing (again, nothing to do with the previous editor, it was all me and my last minute changes), so I knew I would need to have it fixed.

      Katie was looking to take on a few more clients and I was eager to have my novel edited again, so it was the perfect timing. Katie gave me some amazing feedback and had my book edited within a timely manner. She caught quite a few mistakes I had missed, especially when considering audience (American spelling vs Canadian), and noted a few places in the book that were confusing or didnt make sense (ex: character was sitting, but then suddenly standing in the next paragraph without transition, etc.)

      Needless to say, I used her again for book 2, and hope to continue using her services. Katies rates are fair, you will receive a quality edit, and she will respect your time. So, thank you, Katie!

      Good morning, kboards!

      I've spent the morning adding new sticky notes to my beloved Chicago Manual of Style. Toward/towards? Subject-verb agreement? How to punctuate scare quotes at the end of dialogue? No worries--I got you!

      February is filling up quick. Reach out here, through my website, or at kingofkaties AT gmail DOT com royaleditorialinbox[at]gmail[dot]com to discuss your next project!

      Hey kboards! How's your 2019 going so far? My big change this year is taking advantage of Wattpad for feedback on my first drafts. It's going well so far and motivating me to get those words at a steady clip.

      Editing-wise, I'm booking for March. I'm an industry professional with three years of in-house experience under my belt, but I much prefer working with you guys.

      Send me an email at kingofkaties AT gmail DOT com royaleditorialinbox[at]gmail[dot]com to chat about your next project!

      Katie did a fantastic job editing another book for me. She even remembered a few details from the first book I had forgotten and once again saved me from making some humorous mistakes. She also uses a style guide for the series and updated it for this book. Very useful. I highly recommend Katie and plan to use her again for my next book.
