Professional book editing services WILL perfect your writing! You’ve got your hands on the perfect idea for the next best-seller, or children’s book, or nonfiction tome that will save the world. You’ve spent the time getting it all down to the last perfect word, but your characters just aren’t working; your dialogue sounds forced; your tone is not conversational enough.

Latest Book Editing Testimonials
The free sample that we received from Jefferson was very on point. We knew straight away that we wanted to work with him. When we received the entire manuscript back we appreciated his comments, suggestions and track changes. His professionalism was outstanding and we would highly recommend using Jefferson and First Edit. Our editor also provided a lengthy detailed report on the structure of the story, grammar and punctuation. This was a bonus for us as we wanted to personally know what our editor thought about the story. I would definitely use First Edit again because of their professionalism and their amazing affordable prices.

Professionalism, personal communication and turnaround
John, Kilmarnock, Scotland
Quality, meeting deadlines, and professionalism - I had requested 3rd level line-editing service, but was told that from the perusal of the sample chapters sent that my manuscript just needed a 2nd level technical editing; that's honesty!

Why we’re here…
People make mistakes. When it comes to writing, people often make LOTS of mistakes. While some writers struggle with grammar, others find it difficult to control being too “wordy.” Still, some aren’t quite sure what to include…and what to leave out.
Often, writers are so emotionally involved in their own work that they fill pages with great ideas but fail to express their true intent with the best choice of words possible.
First Editing specializes in fixing mistakes, beautifying language, and transforming drafts into literary masterpieces.
