A.P. Lee & Co., Ltd., Publishers
EDITORIAL SERVICES FOR AUTHORS
A.P. Lee & Co., Ltd., offers unique editorial and proofreading services to
authors who self-publish, or who simply want to improve their manuscripts
prior to submission to a potential publisher or agent. Our services are
unique because we understand the concepts and ideas writers of spiritual,
metaphysical, and New Age materials wish to convey to their readers. We do
not edit the meaning of your message to try to substitute our own beliefs for
yours. We understand that your words may have been inspired or guided by
"higher authorities." So our editors do not change your writing style unless
it is necessary to correct grammar.
We can help you compose your manuscript from the outline and
organization stage through drafting the precise language to make your
points with clarity and color. We can also edit your work for accuracy,
consistency, grammar, and punctuation consistent with the Chicago Manual
of Style. When your work is crafted to your satisfaction, we can proofread it.
We offer competitive rates for editing and proofreading services. Contact us
at APLeeCo@sbcglobal.net for more information.
REQUESTS FOR PERMISSION TO QUOTE FROM OUR TITLES
We require a Permissions Agreement even for quotes that one might think
come within the "fair use" doctrine or provision under copyright law. That
way all parties clearly understand the terms of the permission given. In order
to prepare a Permissions Agreement with you, we will need the following
1. The title and any subtitle of your book
2. The publisher of your book and projected date of publication
3. The number of copies that will be printed and the geographic area of
distribution (such as U.S. or worldwide)
4. The title, page number, and content from our title that you wish to quote
5. Copies of the exact pages where the quotes will appear along with the
footnotes or endnotes giving proper attribution in accordance with the "The
Chicago Manual of Style."
Please send the information in response to numbers 1-5 above to
APLeeCo@sbcglobal.net. Once we receive this information, we will prepare
and send you a Permissions Agreement.
