Quality work is our highest priority. If you have been invited to contribute a chapter or an article to a professional publication, we can review your work in a timely manner to assure that it reflects well on you as a service professional.
Deciding What You Need…
If you have a book in mind, know that we will give you and your book the same careful attention we give authors with New York publishers.
Clearly you want your writing to be the very best that it can be, work you’ll be proud to put your name on.
Our approach enables you to write on your own timeline, so you can get your ideas out of your head and onto the page. With our support, you can complete essential writing projects without negatively affecting your professional or personal life.
You can also engage our coaching services to hone your writing skills. We believe in emphasizing the positive. Rather than criticism, we offer positive feedback that helps you identify your greatest strengths and your finest work.
Sometimes a book requires a more in-depth approach. This is considered substantive editing or developmental editing. An in-depth edit involves a closer look at organization, meaning, style, or voice. Since this type of editing may include rewriting or reorganization, it is always done before copy editing begins.
Publishers always bring in a copy editor before going to press. No exceptions. This work is done by professionals, trained in the conventions of publishing and the rules of grammar. If you are ready to send your book to a publisher or self-publish it on Kindle, this is the time to hire a skilled editor. Wouldn’t it be a shame to let all your work go to waste for lack of a good edit?
The Ideal Approach
Even if you’re self-publishing, your manuscript needs to be clearly written, well-organized, and free of typos if you want readers to take you seriously. That’s where we come in. We’ve edited and coauthored books published by Adams Media, Alpha/Penguin, Aspen Publishers, Celestial Arts, Harper/Quill, Healing Arts, Hunter House, Jones & Bartlett, McGraw-Hill, Mosby, New Harbinger, New World Library, and North Atlantic.
We are accustomed to work that requires a long-term commitment, such as books and large websites. A phased approach to these projects can eliminate much of the stress that authors usually experience.
