Editing & Proofreading

Our extensive editing service includes comprehensive editing, line editing, copyediting, and proofreading. All four are integral steps of the publishing process. We examine your manuscript from all sides and explore how the text communicates your intended theme and idea, which can ultimately mean the difference between an average self-published novel that gets lost in the crowd and a professional best-selling book. Let us improve the overall aspect of your work!
