Why don’t you offer editing beyond proofreading?

Choosing an editor is a very individual decision and it is important to find the right editor for you. In the past, we have worked with both Paul Martin and Alexis Arendt and would recommend them to writers looking for an editor for their book. However, it is important to find someone with experience of your particular style and genre. Kobo Writing Life has a useful post explaining how to choose an editor.

Can you proofread my academic paper?

No, sorry. We aim our proofreading service at book authors, not academic writers.

Why doesn’t the ebook look the same as the paperback?

Ebooks are very different to paper books and the appearance will vary, depending on the device the end user chooses to read it on. In most cases, the end user can change various aspects — font face, font size, spacing, etc, which will affect how the ebook looks.

Did you like my book?

We understand why some people ask us 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, 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.

Can you help me promote my book?

The best person to promote any book is almost always the author. However, 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.
