Editorial Services

We know that writing often can get isolating. Our team of editors and writers are here to help you navigate the journey and see your writing project to completion. No matter what stage of your book you are, right from writing mentorship to editing, pitching your book to publisher and book marketing, we have got you covered. We are with you at every step of your writing journey.

I will provide broad feedback on your manuscript. This includes general feedback on the themes of the book, feedback on the piece’s structure, voice and narrative. This is meant to be a starting point from which you can re-write and edit your work.

If you have written a book or you're in the process of writing one, do reach out to us. We are constantly looking for fresh ideas and well-written stories. If we like your content, we will help you pitch it to some of India's best publishers

We will go through the building blocks of your book: sentences. We will go through each line of your book to make sure you are conveying your thoughts in the best way you can. The goal is to ensure your writing flows, is concise, coherent and is pleasurable to read.

I help companies create compelling, efficient and engaging content for their websites and social media pages. I work with artists, non-profits and social enterprises.

Have a great idea? Want to pitch to a publication or a publishing house. Or do you need help applying for a grant for an exciting new project? I will help you line-edit your proposal, strengthen the concept of your pitch, help define your market and structure your chapter outlines. The goal is to grab your reader’s attention, and convey your ideas in the most structured, coherent, and interesting way possible.

This is an in-depth version of the manuscript review: I will give you notes on how to make sure your story comes together in the most effective way possible. I will provide feedback on plot, structure of paragraphs, character, transitions, dialogue and narrative flow. The goal is to make sure your piece holds the attention of your reader, and to help you produce the highest quality of work you can.

We create, conceptualise and market cultural events. We have organised book launches, book clubs, workshops and create programs in different formats that are educational, accessible and unique. If you are a creator who wants to collaborate, drop us a line. We’d be glad to hear from you.

In this edit, I will polish the final version of your book, after you have finalised its structure, language and content. I will concentrate on grammar, spelling, punctuation, and formatting. The goal is to create a high-quality, finished piece that is ready to be published.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

- Raju Shete, President , Planet Ventures

It has been a refreshing experience to work with Tara. Her calm and composed demeanour with great listening, grasping and research skills was particularly valuable. Tara continues to be engaged with this project which is in its final stages. I would like to specifically say that it would not have been possible for me to get it to this stage without her commitment and support. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs a great project partner and leader.

Frequently asked questions

Do you provide sample edits?


No, we do not provide sample edits. The most difficult part of an edit is the first ten pages – that’s where the editor comes to understand the author’s patterns, gets into the story and more. It is very difficult to gauge the level of edit by just a few sample pages. Only by reading the entire book not once but two or three can an editor do a really good job. We focus on quality over quantity.




What are your prices and timelines?


Depends on the scope of work. Please send in a few sample pages of your work to us at either connect@boundindia.com or tarakhandelwal489@gmail.com to take the conversation ahead.




Who will be editing my book?


Our team of editors has extensive industry experience, all vetted by me. You can be assured of nothing but the highest quality working with any one of our editors. Read more about our team on www.boundindia.com




I want only you to edit my book:


Due to high demand, I only take on select work at a premium rate. Do write in to me at tarakhandelwal489@gmail.com to take the conversation ahead, and we’ll see what we can do!




How many rounds of edits do your provide?


Typically there is one round of edits and one phone call to clarify your doubts. If you want more intervention, we offer one on one mentorship programs in the form of once a week editorial sessions. You can read about it here: https://boundindia.com/events/writing-mentorship/




How do I know what service I need?


Usually, one begins with a structural edit. Once the story is set in stone, one moves on to a line edit. A copy edit is usually the last stage of the journey.




Can you connect me to publishers?


If we really believe in the work, we can put you in touch with the literary agent we work with (Kanishka Gupta). However, this is not a paid service and is only for those clients whose work we think is ready to be picked up by a mainstream publisher.




Can you guide me on the publishing process?


More than happy to!
