Standard Copy editing

Content editing

developmental editing

This is the bare minimum for every author. Grammatical mistakes, typos, and awkward sentences will be running for the hills.

This will send your typos packing, and flat characters, boring plot arcs, and cheesy love scenes will be right behind them.

The full package. We'll break it down and build it back up. Expect a lot of red ink. It's tough but fair, and your book will benefit from it.
