If you want a professional book, there is just no way to skip this step. While there’s nothing wrong with having family or friends review your book, that just won’t give you the unbiased, professional feedback you truly need. Our staff of expert book editors will do just that. It’s their job to make sure the best version of your work goes to the presses. 

We offer two levels of editing: a Basic Copyedit and a Comprehensive. In the Basic Copyedit the editor will delete any visible inconsistencies in your manuscript as well as fix sentence-structure errors. The editor will also correct errors in well-known facts and confirm whether permission is needed in situations where intellectual property has been taken from another source. The Comprehensive Edit includes a copyedit as well as an additional round of developmental feedback to really dig into the story and its structure.
