Hire a Professional Manuscript Copy Editor

There is nothing that says "amateur" like misspellings, poor grammar or disconnects in a text. A publisher, literary agent or book reviewer will ignore your manuscript if the writing is under par, even if your content is phenomenal. Fortunately, it is so easy to head off instant failure before it happens by hiring a professional manuscript editor or proofreader for your book.
What our manuscript proofreaders and editors do for you
PROOFREADING: Let's begin with the basics. We can proofread your manuscript for you:
Of course "correct" might include slang or colloquialisms, depending on the nature of your audience and the subject of your book.
We go beyond simple proofreading. We also ensure consistency. For example, if some chapters of your book are written in very formal language, you probably don't want other chapters written more colloquially.
Similarly, if you use USA spellings, such as "center" and "honor" in your manuscript, you don't want to suddenly insert UK or Canadian spellings, such as "centre" or "honour". And if you refer to a car in some places, an automobile in others and an auto in still others, you might prefer to have some consistency.
EDITING: Our manuscript editors can do all this, PLUS we can add vigor to your text. Some adjectives and adverbs add a little bit extra life, but a few well-placed action verbs or powerful analogies can breathe much more life into your manuscript.

Our clients speak out.
Maya - novelist
Oh wow, I am crying. It is beautiful. And I am not just saying that because it is my book and all. It flows smoothly. I am pleased. I am confident I will land a contract with that. Now I feel confident. I didn't feel that confidence before with my manuscript. Being a writer, I know that my manuscript didn't have the smoothness I was aiming for. Thanks so much.
Toni - author, Alabama Blue
Debra is exactly the person/editor/lady I was looking for. She is not re-writing my book, she's making it better. I took 98%+ of her suggestions on my first fifty pages. I am very pleased and inspired. I LOVE WHAT SHE IS DOING WITH ALABAMA BLUE.
Marcia Applegate - author, Now & Then: The Waiting
I feel right now as if my book is already published and you have written the first--and best--review it could have... All I can say is, thank you! for your professional editing and your wonderful words... Again, I couldn't be more pleased with your work, and your reaction to the novel itself has given me a great deal of inspiration to continue on to publication.
Gabriel Sinki - Christian author
I can't thank you enough for the excellent job you did. The article flows like a symphony... Of all the editors that did help me out - in my other publications - you are the best. I am very happy that I found you. and grateful for David that he recommended you. I will now submit the article for publication and if accepted I will hand you the book for your editing.
