We will examine your final proof (finished product) prior to publishing and reproduction: checking for typographical errors, for inconsistencies in written content and structure, the overall flow of content, readability and visual presentation.
We will analyse your drafts throughout the writing process: ensuring that your content adheres to correct writing conventions applicable to your genre and text type, your syntax is smooth, phrasing is precise and punctuation is appropriate and correctly placed. Additionally, suggestions will be made concerning the organisation of content and recommended changes to titles and subheadings.
We will assist in the initial brainstorming and planning stages of the writing process: asking strategic questions regarding purpose, audience, main message, objectives, writing techniques and structure. Suggestions regarding rewrites at the chapter, section, paragraph and sentence levels are also offered for sample chapters.
Writing & Voiceovers
We will plan and develop written content appropriate to your needs: this includes, and is not limited to, websites, webinars, podcasts, social media, blog posts, newsletters, brochures, presentations, speeches, advertisements, media releases, documents, reports, articles etc.
Celina partners with speakers, business and life coaches and thought leaders who may not have the time to write their own books. From creating the proposal, researching and gathering raw material, implementing a suitable timeline, capturing your voice, drafting the manuscript and so much more, Celina will ensure you end up with a book of which you are proud - and in your own name!
Celina will provide voiceovers for e-learning clips, podcasts, online resources, corporate videos and media productions, using a “female professional voice” that is authoritative, engaging and motivating. Celina is also available for recording audio versions of books. Furthermore, she will collaborate with you to ensure that your scripts have a “natural” English sound.
Book Proposal Package
We will partner with you to prepare your Book Proposal, which is a ‘must-have’ for authors, even if you plan to self-publish. It acts as the business plan for your book, which traditional publishing houses will want you to submit before they even look at any manuscript. This package includes our customised digital planning tool and collaboration conversations - a great start-up package!
Manuscript Feedback Report
We will thoroughly read through your completed manuscript and prepare a feedback report outlining our observations and recommendations. This is not an editing service. The report will both highlight the strengths of the manuscript and areas needing improvement or a total re-think. Furthermore, we will present various customised ways to help you act on the recommendations.
Celina will meet with you, either face-to-face or online, providing strategic guidance and practical support in the development of proposals, writing projects, creative pursuits, and curriculum courses.
Ready-to-Print & Ebook Files
A perfect package for writers wanting to independently publish their work. We collaborate with experienced graphic designers and typesetters to transform your edited book manuscript into a ready-to-print file and/or ebook file. We ensure that every element of the book anatomy is present (from the covers, front & back matter content and main body), including the ISBN and barcode. We include a Social Media Starter Kit to help you promote and launch your book.
