FAQs

What is the first step in working with us?

Send us an email via the Contact Form and tell us about your needs: Is it a fiction book you would like manuscript critique on? Is it a text that requires proofreading? Do you have a CV that you would like to polish? Tell us a bit about your text’s topic, your needs and the purpose of your text.

How long does an editing job take?

That depends on your text. Developmental editing of a full-length manuscript (80,000 words or more) takes around 2-3 weeks. On the other hand, proofreading and polishing a CV takes 2-5 working days.

How do I know what service I require?

After we receive your email with the details of your text, we will ask you some guiding questions and, if it is a full-length manuscript, request a chapter or two as a test. Then we will tell you what we can do with the manuscript and how long that will take.

What methods can I use to pay you ?

The Book Raven accepts PayPal and bank transfer. Invoices will be sent to you via email. We work with clients from around the world but we issue our invoices in Euros.
