Every writer is too close to their creation to see it as readers will see it. There is no substitute for the fresh perspective, experience, and insight a professional editor adds to an author’s work. Our editorial team works with major Christian publishers on best-selling titles. These same editors will leverage their expertise and experience to ensure that your book achieves its potential.

Substantive Edit (14 day turn-time)
Involves a thorough read to identify and suggest improvements to the manuscript, with the goal of keeping the author’s purpose clear throughout the text.
