Editorial Services

Why do I need to do the author review process?

When the edited manuscript comes back to you, it is important to go through it page by page and word by word. Our editors are very skilled, but in the end, no one knows your book better than you do. You may disagree with a change the editor has made, and the author review process is the only chance you’ll have to make those changes (or add or delete new material) before the book goes to design, production, and galleys.

Please note: Xlibris UK accepts a very low margin of error in each completed edit, no more than 3 percent of the total errors found. Our professional in-house editorial staff reviews each editorial service for quality assurance. Upon reviewing your edited manuscript, if you believe that an unsatisfactory number of errors remain, please create a list of the errors and the page numbers on which they appear and email it to AHEditorial@xlibrispublishing.co.uk, and a member of our staff will go over the list with you.
