We are a team of former journalists, with deep backgrounds in editing. We edit for marketability, based on the book’s genre. Our editing includes grammar, punctuation, style, and content. Whether you simply need a second set of eyes or you need comprehensive editing, we have the experience to do the job. Publishing a book to be read by the general public or your business audience is different from publishing a book for academic purposes, so you need an editor who understands that.

In addition to the press-

Choosing the right fonts, spacing, images, and other elements, takes years of experience. A book designed for an audience over 40 may need to use a different font or font size than one for younger readers.
