Book editing services ensure you deliver the best possible version of your manuscript to publishers. From tone and style to dialogue and formatting, our professional book editors will help you put your best foot forward as you embark on the journey toward publication of your story.

What is book editing?

Book editors, when doing book editing, provide a fresh pair of eyes on your work before you publish. They ensure your book meets publishing-industry standards.

How do you write a book?

A book can take many different forms. It can be fiction or nonfiction, created for toddlers or adults, five pages or a thousand. There’s no one right way to write a book. Simple facets, like spelling, punctuation, syntax, and grammar, should remain consistent throughout.

It is also important to maintain tonal consistency. A humorous science-fiction novel will have a different tone than a historical biography. The voices of these two pieces may be different, but they should still be clear in each work. A strange change in voice can confuse and disorient readers. An author wants to maintain his or her style, tone, and voice throughout the work. Book editing services, either through freelance book editors or professional book editing companies, can help you keep this tone.
