Book Magic offers professional proofreading services, copy-editing services, and manuscript evaluations. If you are looking for a professional essay editor, Book Magic has been working with students and academics for years. We provide the best essay proofreading compared to many other companies for several reasons.
One, the owner and founder of the company, Sigrid Macdonald, has been affiliated with five publishing companies over the years and still maintains ties to two of them. Publishers are discriminating in terms of the freelance contractors they hire. Freelancers must pass editing and proofreading tests and prove that they are proficient using various style guides. At Book Magic, we use The Chicago Manual of Style because it is the gold standard for editing fiction and nonfiction books. However, when we are proofreading or copy editing essays for students, we use MLA style or APA, whichever the student requests.
Two, Sigrid and her team have worked extensively with people who have English as a second language. Sigrid speaks “un pocito de Español” and as a result, she knows the types of errors that people with ESL are prone to make when they are writing in English. According to the U.S. Census report in 2018, one in five Americans speaks a language other than English in his or her home. Writing in your second language can be tough; it’s much easier to speak than it is to make everything grammatically correct in writing. Book Magic has worked with many Latinos, Europeans, and others who desire to write a book, a memoir, or an essay in their second language.
Three, Sigrid is the author of three books and two published short stories. She knows what it’s like to have that nerve-racking feeling of handing over a manuscript to a stranger. You are not just a number at Book Magic. Sigrid and her team make themselves available, sometimes at 10 PM, to respond to messages and deliver the personalized service that you deserve. Many of our clients return for professional proofreading services for essays, editing, or evaluations of new books that they have written.
Four, Book Magic offers free sample edits and phone consultations Talking to an editor and seeing a sample of her work is the best way to determine how well you’re going to work with that person.
Last, Book Magic understands that editing can be expensive. That’s why we have flexible contracts with installment plans for payment. This is particularly helpful for students who want the best professional essay editor but might not be able to pay the entire cost for a project upfront. Professional proofreading services can be pricey, but Book Magic makes them affordable.
