Book Editing Service

A lot of self-published authors skip editing process, thinking it will save them money. In reality, they are making themselves an easy target for garnering negative reviews on Amazon once the book is published. That can have detrimental effects on your authoring career.

Why does your book need professional editing?

Another myth is that they can do it themselves. No amount of self-editing can replace working with good editors. Good books are professionally designed and edited. Cover is the first thing that a potential reader will be attracted to, enticing them to pick it up, turn it over and make a decision to buy it. Once that threshold has been met, they will read and simultaneously judge the quality of its writing. Therefore, providing them a good reading experience is very crucial to keeping that reader happy enough to leave a good review and also look forward to your next book.

Developmental Editing:

  1. Focus: Developmental editing primarily addresses the content, structure, and overall coherence of a written work, such as a book, manuscript, or document.
  2. Purpose: The main goal is to help the author improve the clarity, organization, and effectiveness of their writing, often working on big-picture issues like plot, character development, and narrative flow.
  3. Edits: Developmental editors may suggest rewrites, additions, or deletions of entire sections and offer feedback on the manuscript’s strengths and weaknesses.
  4. Timing: This type of editing is typically done in the early stages of a project when major changes can still be made.

Copy or Line Editing:

  1. Focus: Copy or line editing involves a detailed review of the text to improve its readability, style, and overall quality.
  2. Purpose: The primary aim is to enhance the language, tone, and clarity of the writing while preserving the author’s voice and intended meaning.
  3. Edits: Copy editors correct grammar, punctuation, spelling, and syntax errors. They may also suggest revisions for sentence structure, word choice, and coherence.
  4. Timing: Copy or line editing usually occurs after developmental editing, focusing on refining the manuscript’s language and style.


  1. Focus: Proofreading is the final stage of the editing process and concentrates on identifying and correcting surface-level errors.
  2. Purpose: The primary goal is to eliminate typographical errors, such as spelling mistakes, punctuation errors, and formatting issues.
  3. Edits: Proofreaders review the document for consistency, ensuring that it adheres to style guides and is free from minor errors. They do not typically suggest content changes.
  4. Timing: Proofreading takes place after developmental and copy editing, often when the document is near its final form, just before publication.

In summary, developmental editing focuses on content and structure, copy or line editing improves language and style, and proofreading ensures a polished, error-free final document. These editing stages are typically conducted sequentially to ensure the quality and effectiveness of the written work.

The 90% Formula:

A good rule of thumb is to expect each round to catch somewhere around 90% of the issues. For example, let’s say on our Sample Book that I made 900 revisions. That means the proofreader will probably make an additional 500 to a 100 and that the final-round reader will probably then find around fifty more. And there are probably another handful of errors still lurking that nobody spotted. That’s just the hard truth.

What This Means
The other truth is that the more rounds we make on a book, the cleaner it’s going to be.

As a first time author, I did not know anything about the publishing process, and these guys walked me through every step. I always had a million questions and the answers came quickly. Ry was great to work with. The final outcome of my book, Hope Flies High, was absolutely beautiful exceeded my expectations. I hope to work with them again in the future.
