Manuscript Editing & Proof-Reading Services

Your one-stop shop for pristine manuscript revision.

Proof reading is an essential part of the writing process, whether you are going with traditional publishing or self-publishing.

Bring your work to a higher level of excellence by having your book proof-read, edited, and restructured. Success is driven by the little things: correcting small grammatical errors and/or removing redundant sentences that can place an author at a higher standard of authorship. Every piece of writing should be reviewed by a third party before publication. Someone who reads the manuscript for the first time is better able to spot errors.
