So you finished writing your manuscript (or so you think) because as Stephen King said, “To write is human, to edit is divine.” The literary industry is not only a haven for starry-eyed book lovers and readers, but it is also a place where vicious critics dwell. Defend yourself from all the grammar Nazis by getting your manuscript as spic and span as possible with Authors Press’ professional editors. Our team has the experience to make sure your final product is perfect. Call Authors Press today at 925-255-0098 or contact us for more information about our Editorial Services

Authors Press Content Editing Plus goes deeper into the editing process. Content editing checks the content of the text and not only its form.

Developmental editing is taking an in depth look at every part of your story. Our trained developmental editors will help you improve your storyline, suggest a smoother transition from one event to the next and ensure all pieces of the puzzle fit together in one cohesive writing, all the while correcting smaller mistakes in grammar and spelling.
If you’re not sure what kind of editing your book needs, you can get an Editorial Assessment to figure out where you need to improve. Our editors will assess the first 1000, middle 1000 and final 1000 words of your manuscript and suggest what kind of further editing it needs.
