Editing Services For Authors and WriterseBooks, books, novels, short stories, fiction, non-fiction, children's stories
Are you a writer or author with a manuscript ready to be proofread and edited by a professional? Or maybe you are looking to publish your own ebook?
I offer Brisbane editing services and work with writers and self publishers to make your manuscript ready for the publication process.
Self-publishing is the process of publishing your own publication or book without involving a third party publisher. The increased popularity of e-books has meant that budding authors can now easily produce and publish their own books online, with the cliched click of a button. There are a number of online e-book publishers that also offer specials where authors can produce their e-book as a hard copy as well.
The editing step as part of the complete book production process has yet to be automated and of course that second pair of eyes will still pick up mistakes and errors that you, as the author may not notice after their hundredth review. I have helped self publishers by managing the publication of their e-books from draft to online store by offering:
- Proofreading to ensure your e-book is free from spelling, grammar and punctuation errors.
- Editing services to ensure your e-book has a consistent tone, is readable, is clear to understand and uses accurate sentence structure.
- Managing of your images through our suppliers should your e-book require these.
- Supporting your e-book and hard book cover creation to ensure the cover accurately reflects the style of your e-book.
