Manuscript editing services

Professional book editors read and examine your every single word. We consider every sentence, paragraph, character, plot point, and argument when editing. Your professional editor ensures that your writing is consistent and coherent throughout the entire manuscript.

Our editors polish your manuscript while remaining true to your voice and intentions as an author. Even a near-perfect piece of work can benefit from a keen editorial eye. Our goal is to provide basic corrections while weeding out illogical statements and inconsistencies.

You’ve done all the hard work of getting the writing down on the page: now’s the time to put your feet up and let our editors clear up any oversights.

Our book editors have advanced degrees and over 20 years of experience with publishing, editing, and writing.

Our editors have extensive experience in providing substantive edits in a variety of genres, including literary fiction, creative nonfiction, Christian writing, textbooks, biographies, romance, westerns, sci-fi, self-help, urban, children, and young adult – the list goes on!

We have over two decades of priceless experience in the writing, publishing, and editing industry. With our history of successfully published books and articles, we promise a satisfaction guarantee to all our clients.

Professional book editing services WILL perfect your writing

Book editing often encompasses basic copy editing (spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc.) as well as larger, development elements of your manuscript, such as:

  • Plot Structure
  • Storyline
  • Point of View
  • Character Development
  • Tone, Voice & Dialogue
  • Pace & Setting
  • Readability & Organization
  • Message Effectiveness
  • Target Audience
  • Focus
  • Voice

As each author is unique, it is vitally important to first determine what your individual needs are through a professional editing sample and editorial critique. This will include specific recommendations regarding which editing level fits your project.

As an author, you are often just too close to your work to clearly see what needs to be done to take your book from good to great. After all, you’ve been living and breathing the subject matter and plot line for months if not years!

That’s where our professional book editing services come in. It’s our job to clean up and critique your work — not only to improve your manuscript but also to help you avoid future snags and to become a better author overall.
