We may all think that we are great writers, but often when what we have written is looked at by others errors we overlook become glaringly obvious to them.

To avoid putting out work that others might regard as amateurish, it is suggested that you should have it checked by someone with training in good English. They would also be able to advise if anything was offensive or potentially libellous.

You may know someone who can do this for you, but if you do not, why not use our cost-effective service.

Charging is done on a per thousand words basis, as follows:

First 5,000 words£5.00 per thousand
Next 5,000 words£3.75 per thousand
Next 15,000 words£3.00 per thousand
Next 15,000 words£2.50 per thousand
Next 35,000 words£2.25 per thousand
Above 75,000 words£2.00 per thousand


A small book of short stories, amounting to 13,000 words would cost £52.75.
A typical children’s novel of 45,000 words would cost £137.50.
A large Bible commentary of 95,000 words would cost £245.00.
Your epic sequel to Lord of the Rings of 250,000 words would cost £555.00.
