It’s important to find the right editor for you. We’ve worked with Paul Martin and Alexis Arendt. We can recommend both, but choosing an editor is a very individual decision. Kobo Writing Life has a useful post explaining how to choose an editor.
No, sorry. We aim our proofreading service at book authors, not academic writers.
Ebooks are very different to paper books. How it looks will depend partly on what the end-user reads it on. In most cases, the end-user can change various aspects — font face, font size, spacing, etc.
We understand why some people ask this, but please don’t. When we’re proofreading and formatting, we’re looking at details, and not really taking in the complete story. It’s not the same as reading for pleasure.
More importantly, though, unless our opinion doesn’t really matter. Not everyone will like your book, and that’s not a bad thing. Concentrate on the people it’s aimed at, make them happy, and ignore everyone else.
The best person to promote any book is almost always the author. We can give you a head start by helping you set up a WordPress site, an author page on Amazon, and some social media accounts with a few initial posts.
