Book Editing Services
Here’s one indisputable truth: bad editing can kill a good book faster than bullets can kill a man. From experience helping thousands of authors publish their books, we’ve learned that readers will readily discard books that are not properly edited. Let’s not even start on literary critics and how often they rip poorly written books apart.
To help you avoid this horrible fate—especially after you’ve put in so much effort into writing your book— OkadaBooks is offering editing services that will take your fiction and non-fiction manuscripts from a not-so-clean state to perfection.
We currently offer three types of editing:
This involves checking your manuscript for grammar, punctuation and spelling errors. Consider this service as the icing on the cake, a quality check of sorts, one best utilized when you’ve gotten all aspects of your book in place, and want to cross your Ts and dot your Is.
With our proofreading service, you’ll get one round of editing, a thorough sweep in record time to save yourself from grammar Nazis.
Want to ensure that elementary errors don’t make you look unprofessional. Get our professional proofreading services today.
Line Editing (almost the same as copy editing)
Our line editing service is focused on addressing the author’s writing style as well as how language is used at both the sentence and paragraph levels.
In less technical terms, this means that one of our professional editors will ensure your sentences and paragraphs are properly written, and arranged to improve flow in your manuscript. This editing style will map out your writing style and writing voice while helping you maintain consistency. You’ll get one round of editing which includes our Proofreading package. When we’re done, your words will be sublime.

This kind of editing focuses on ensuring your storyline and characters are well-developed. Your manuscript’s structure will be reworked. The plot will be examined for loose ends and bridges will be crafted to properly link one scene to another.
Your editor will ensure your facts are consistent while ensuring that your pacing is good. Character traits and dialogue will also be checked and amended if faults are found.
This editing type is almost similar to ghostwriting as the editor will help rewrite scenes that don’t fit. The wonderful thing is that all ideas will be attributed to you and your work will be safe with us. Plus, this package also entitles you to the Proofreading and Line Editing package.

Writing is hard work and not everyone has the time or zeal to put in the work. That’s why we always say that there’s nothing as good as getting a professional to draft and write your manuscripts while you attend to other things. Our professional ghostwriters—proficient across many writing forms and genres — are your best bet for unravelling the intricate ideas that lurk in your head.
Your ghostwriter will ensure that they mirror your tone of voice and writing style while moulding speech, scenery, characters, plot, as well as other aspects of your story. Be assured though, we don’t just write for the sake of it. We will first work with you to create an outline of the entire work and then do our best to develop it into your dream book. If we feel a particular chapter doesn’t work, we will let you know and discuss what works.
No matter how complicated your story is, there’s someone here to tell it for you. You know the best thing? No one will ever know that you didn’t write it.

Epub Conversion for as low as N350 for 1000 words
When your manuscript is in a .epub file extension, it saves you the time and stress of having to copy and paste or edit your work in the publishing dashboard. To make it easier for you, we can convert your book into epub format from any of the following file extensions: pptx, doc, docx, pdf, txt or mobi. This allows for swift publishing on our platform, and also makes it possible for you to publish the converted epub file on Amazon.
This level of conversion is for books containing only words, and are divided into chapters. It is the easiest, and costs just shikini money.
This level is for books containing lists, columns, bullet points and multiple paragraphs. The difficulty of conversion is medium.
This level is the most challenging as it is for documents that contain tables, lists, charts, images and other heavy graphics.
In addition to doing the conversion, we will also help upload your book on OkadaBooks if you’d like.

Get An ISBN For Your Book
Although it seems unnecessary in this digital age, we still advise authors to have an International Standard Book Number (ISBN) as it is a unique identifier. Apart from being proof that your work is yours, having an ISBN makes it easy to search for your book. Imagine how easy it would be for anyone in the world to find a copy of your manuscript!
Interested in getting an ISBN for your book? Let’s help you today.
When you’re done (or almost done) with your manuscript, what you need isn’t a glass of wine (yet). You need a professional editor who can analyse the structure and creative workings of your manuscript while proffering easily-implementable solutions to matters arising.
The OkadaBooks Manuscript Critique service allows you select specific aspects of your work you would like checked out. A general check on various stylistic and structural elements (i.e writing style, voice, pacing, plot) can also be rendered. When the editor is done with your manuscript, you’ll understand the yays, nays and maybes of your manuscript as well as how to rework your story to make it a near perfect.
