Editing

Complete your Author Questionnaire to Book a Service

We provide three types of editing in a comprehensive and thorough service. Editing is the backbone of our business, and is where we started out. Book quality hinges on its editing, so it’s something we take very seriously.

Our editing keeps you, the author at the centre. You work side by side with your editor, developing a close relationship so the editor can speak for you in your manuscript, and help you express yourself as eloquently as you had dreamed you could. You will be supported by regular Zoom calls to go through each chapter and will have control and a guiding hand throughout the editing and proofreading process.

Structural editing
3 run throughs – a detailed service focusing on content, structure and style to ensure the manuscript is readable, cohesive and logical, that it flows well, and its message is clear and aligned with your goals. Includes overall review, micro structural edit and extensive author input. Includes weekly checkin calls and constant inclusive feedback.
