The most widely published and gifted authors would never dream of attempting to do so. Even bestselling authors rely on professional editors to proofread their manuscript and improve the quality of their writing. They know they’ve become too close to their manuscripts to identify mistakes or areas in need of improvement.

A Solid Approach to Editing Projects
We charge the lowest rates because of our exclusive, modern editing method.

The service types are clearly defined, and the editors are professional. Our extremely effective process matches your manuscript with a first-rate editor from your genre. Then, your editor spends countless hours on your novel, providing suggestions, corrections, and alterations. Our experienced romance novel editors will be able to show you how to write your emotional conflict so that the lovers stay separate but tantalizingly close to the very end, rather than allowing them to unite prematurely and relying on other action or conflict to finish the story.

We ensure correctness through multiple readings

Proofreading and Editing Service
Using a systematic review, we closely examine your project for spelling, punctuation, and typographical errors ensuring readability by assessing verb tense, grammar, sentence fragments, run-on sentences, subject-verb disagreement, comma splices, and other usage. For editing, we concentrate on logical flow, organization, structure, transition, phrasing ambiguities, levels of diction, lexical register, rhythm, and colloquialisms, we focus on your needs for consistency, theme, style, clarity, concision, tone, and audience appropriateness.

Formatting Service
Editing your text is just one aspect of perfecting your manuscript. Most publishers will only accept manuscripts that are properly formatted, and many demand painstaking adherence to a specific house style manual. Whether you are preparing your manuscript for ePublishing (e.g., ePub, Kindle) or print, we can ensure that your document is perfectly formatted for traditional publishers or independent presses.

As novelists, novel writing and novel editing are near and dear to us. We understand how your fictitious characters often become just as real and beloved as those in the everyday world.

Editing Novels

For novels, we make all of the types of corrections shown on our proofreading and editing list. We consider the following questions as we pour over your manuscript:
  • What can be done to improve your work's marketability?
  • Is the plot original and compelling?
  • Does it have any major organization or structural problems?
  • Have you missed any key ingredients or not developed any scenes or topics sufficiently?
  • Are the characters original and fully developed?
  • Is the dialogue genuine?
  • Is there too much description and exposition or interior monologue with too little action and/or dialogue?
  • Are there any clichés or stereotypes that weaken your writing?
  • Is there enough believability, suspense, action, conflict, and tension?
  • Is your novel too short or too long, and, if so, why? Should it be part of a series?
  • Is there anything else that you, as the author, can do to improve it?
We can make evaluative comments and explain corrections and suggestions. As needed, based on the questions above, we can also do the following:
  • strengthen your characters
  • redraft dialogue
  • set the pace and tone
  • nullify plot issues
  • Suggest necessary topic development and logic revisions
  • Revise and improve sentence construction, precision, and organization

Finding the Best Novel Editor

The characterization of an author working alone in a room for months on end, then emerging with a fully formed novel that's ready to publish is something for the movies. In reality, writing is a difficult set of skills to master. Novels are crafted through the talent and extensive revision of the author. Good novels result from turning a manuscript over to knowledgeable professionals who can make evaluations and suggestions and provide guidance from a perspective most writers don't acquire on their own. That's why working with a manuscript editor is essential when writing a novel. We offer the professionals with the right experience in your genre to make your story better.

(We have worked with Reid on several books in his western romance series and he's been highly satisfied.)
You are a blessing. I appreciate all you’ve done for my first romance novel and I’ll continue to use your service and refer it to others. Thank you!
Many Tks. I appreciate your exceptional service and follow-up on my children's novel. I hope that you are recognized for attention to detail and customer care.
I got the novel back. Felt not only edited but "heard." I am pursuing the publishing. As I move forward, I'd be delighted if you could help with book two when I've done an edit myself.
Thank you so much! There's something about your editing that goes well with my writing style. I am nearing the finishing line on my novel. Next step…e-publishing format.
I want to thank you kindly for this. Felt not only edited, but "heard." I am pursuing the publishing. As I move forward I'd be delighted if you could help with novel two when I've done an edit myself. Send a shout out to Charlie too.
Just a short update, since your professional and proper formatting, two more literary agents have requested the full novel.
Your corrections to my book show why you are the professional and I'm just the beginner. I will be getting back to you with the rest of the novel as soon as I make some changes.
Every writer has weaknesses. I sent my novel to you for proofreading. You worked on my book and I want you to know that you are amazing. I’m really satisfied with the proofreading. You answered all of my questions really swiftly, even late at night sometimes. I’ve found you to be honest and dependable. You are great.
My novel was proofread in a very quick and exacting manner without messing with my content or style. Your general remarks and suggestions concerning the book’s structure are direct and just what I need. You were able to see the unimportant parts of my book to take out. After finishing the last revisions, I am so confident it’ll be published. I couldn’t have done it without you. You are extremely professional, reasonable, accomplished, and your work is top notch. Your services are amazing.
You provided first class proofreading and editing services. My novel is so much more engaging now. Very nice. You know, I would never have gotten this in shape by my publisher’s deadline. I look forward to a long and lasting (should I say) friendship with you. I’m glad you’ve got my back.
I’ve worked with a bunch of editors ‘cause I’ve written a few books. You consistently deliver. Only one person at your company has edited my work, and it is always done so perfectly and with a human touch. I look forward to working with you again soon. I’m going to give you one of my earlier novels for a redo.
I hope that you are having the best day of your life. You did the copyedit of my novel of over 140,000 words. Now that I have seen the results, I’m glad I selected you. You are a wonderful and affordable resource. I’ll come back for help in the future. I would recommend you to anyone.
The edited version of my novel was there when I opened my emails this morning. Your editor has done a great job, many thanks – for example the huge improvement he did to make the font professional and the formatting in addition to all the care and attention on the small but important spelling, grammar and phrasing have really transformed it.

A big thank you too for the pages of comments on the novel itself about the need for greater depth in the characters and adding more action to the first few chapters.
I would like to thank my angelic editors at I don’t know how I found them, but I’m sooo thankful I did. After months of going back and forth with edits and rewrites, they have transformed this project from an ugly caterpillar into a graceful butterfly. Dotting i’s and crossing t’s is waaay easier said than done.
