Professional Manuscript Preparation Briefing
We can easily prepare a manuscript for you through a number of methods. Working from your rough draft or raw research, if you place your materials in the order in which you wish them to appear in the book, a quality manuscript can be produced.
Manuscript preparation fees can vary, depending on the condition of the material submitted and the desires of the client. The major portion of submitted material is adequate to work from, however, occasionally we do get things that require extra time to read and process. These can include such things as faint pencil, faded copies, poor handwriting, audio recordings, or smeared copy. It then becomes necessary to adjust fees accordingly, and the author is contacted. The majority of our manuscript preparation clients select word processing; utilizing electronic file or laser print output, because of the benefits and savings. Preparation for an electronic book can be much the same and general costs can be found using standard package pricing. Basic packages are prepared in 1 font only, more expensive packages include different fonts, formats, various types and sizes of clip art, etc.
The normal procedure for general manuscript preparation is to send copies of each page to the author for proof reading, correction, additions, etc. The proofed copies are then returned to us, in order that these changes can be made. These annotated pages would be considered approved by the author and the final camera-ready copy prepared. If any errors were made at Gregath, these are corrected free of charge. There is an additional fee for rewriting, should the author alter the processed work. An additional digital author return/approval may be made at this time for no additional charge, or further steps as deemed necessary by customer or publisher.

If the book will contain photographs, we can consult on our free, basic refurbishment work for photographs. If photos intended for use in the manuscript are beyond our free services, we can also quote on custom/extensive restoration/refurbishment work.
