The books we help publish range from memoirs, fiction, history, how-to, kids books, and literary nonfiction.

You also genuinely want to help authors improve their manuscripts. We offer $0.02 CAD per would for substantive editing which includes spelling, grammar, some re-writing of sentences, and cons...

Hey all, I've written a novel that I'd love to get feedback on as well as having someone take a pass through it and do some line editing to make sure it reads fluidly and makes sense. The novel spans 77,000 words. I've attached the (rather long) query letter below to give you a feel for the plot and style. I've also included the first three chapters if you're intrigued. Please let me know if you think this is the kind of novel you'd like to support. Applicants should have ample experience editing fiction and in a capacity beyond copy editing. Having established clients is also a huge bonus. Being able to provide feedback on query letters and agent submission would also be appreciated. Thanks for your time! -Ryne

I believe in this story so much... it's hysterical, coming of age, fast moving, and about to be a best selling novel turned movie. I can feel it in my bones!! Looking for an editor/proofreader to understand my voice, and basically "line edit" for simple grammar mistakes, accidental missing/misplaced quotations, wrong word etc. I've been working with an editor already- just want to get a second opinion. This manuscript is near polished, and totally finished. 330 pages double spaced, 75,000 words. Plot: After their father passes away of heart disease, 3 siblings (the narrator is 17) talk to a psychic, who sends them on a cross country road trip in search for something their father left them. They assume it's a large finance- they are so wrong. I've had 3 friends in the industry read through the manuscript already... it's addicting. You'll be finished in less than a week, I guarantee it! My main concern is never changing the narrators voice. Would love basic manuscript f...

I have completed a work of fiction that is set within a band of Oglala Lakota 200 years ago and also on the Pine Ridge Reservation South Dakota as it is now. Although I have visited the Reservation to get a better feel of the place, I'm sure I still have a lot of things wrong. I am not Lakota, or even American, and I would appreciate someone who is familiar with Lakota customs/speech/attitudes on the Rez to help me out. I'm looking for a critiquer/reader to read the manuscript and suggest any amendments to the Oglala sections. You won't be required to rewrite anything; you only need to supply notes as you read through the work. This shouldn't take longer than 15-20 hours. Manuscript length is under 75,000 words.

Hi I hope you're all doing well :)! I'm looking for a experienced and talented fiction editor to work in the romance genre. If you check my profile, you will see i have paid out over $48,000 to writers and editors. I offer a wide range of interesting manuscripts, communicate regularly expressing exactly what i want and pay immediately on completion. If you are serious about editing long term, then i am interested in you. You will need to have an exceptional grasp of English language and grammar. But i'm not just looking for someone to proofread, change spellings, correct punctuation etc. I need a copyeditor/substantive editor - preferably someone with a writing background. If a scene needs a sentence or two to make it more coherent, then you can add that in. If a set of dialogue isn't sharp enough, you can dig into it and make it flow better. If a description is too bland, you can spice it up a bit. This will be a long-term position with plenty of work available for you, so...

We are looking for an experienced proofreader for a non-fiction book that is around 50k words long. The book is very 'British', with some unusual expression and words that are typical of the British culture, and for this reason only British candidates will be considered for the job. The book will be typeset in a couple of weeks time, by the middle of June, and after that is done we need someone who will be able to proofread the book thoroughly in a short amount of time (a few days). The book has already been copy-edited and read by several beta readers, so the main tasks you will be responsible for will be: - Check for any typos/grammar mistakes/spelling mistakes based on our house style (a short guide to this will be provided to you prior to starting the job) - Check that the formatting of the book is perfect, that there aren't any words or sections that didn't quite format properly and there aren't any orphans or widows If the collaboration goes well, there is the possibility of...

Anxiously at Peace is a book that I've written about my battle with anxiety. I've written the first draft by hand and I'm currently almost 3 chapters into my second draft on MS Word. What I'm looking for is editing as well as some design for diagrams that I've sketched out roughly. I was hoping to do this on a chapter by chapter basis, i.e. I send you a completed chapter while I'm working on the next one. I hope to get this published the traditional way. Since this is my first go around, I expect to learn a lot and make a lot of mistakes throughout the process. I've had a fictional short story published in a literary magazine once in the past. I see that you have a psychology background which will work well with what I'm trying to convey to my readers.

I have a novel that I have been working on for the last three years and I am confident that it can now be edited by a professional editor. What I need is Its 90,000 words. The kind of editor I am looking for is someone with English as his/her first language and has edited fiction books. He should be someone who has studied literature/writing/editing and has a record/experience in writing and editing. This freelancer must must be ready to read the entire book, and write a review of what he thinks and should be done. I want sentences to be polished and reworded to improve clarity and flow and to get rid of repetition, clumsy wording, an overuse of passive voice, and convoluted sentence structure. Facts are checked and corrected, sections may be rearranged if necessary, and subheads and chapter titles might be reworked to make them catchier, funnier, or more dramatic. I want a good editor who will make suggestions to remedy these problems. In numerous ways. Also I want an experienced...

I have four books I want edited, checked for style and flow. They're all different, but will be illustrated or accompany photography. One is the first of a series that uses a set poem structure for animal fingerplays. One is Seuss style in rhyme but with a more advanced vocabulary to entertain parents (who read children's books over, and over, and over again). One humorously tackles the sensitive topic of American obesity but showcases the USA's multiculturalism. One makes fun of the watered down versions of Chinese food found in the States by following an American child's food adventure through Beijing. Job description: For starters: simple proofreading, deep line editing and voice/tone check, (I expect you'll read the books aloud and quietly to get the full affect of two common situations - a teacher silently reading it before she decides on whether she wants to take it into class or parents reading it aloud to their children). I also want advice on what to do next after edi...

We are looking for an editor to copy edit and line edit ebooks of novella and novel length. We want you to do more than run the text through Word's spell checker (since we've already done that!) so we'll need you to be a native English speaker. It needs to be your first language, please. We want you to catch the misspellings that are normally missed, like finding "too" should be used instead of "to", or a comma and parenthesis should be reversed, but we also want you to keep an eye on very light story elements. What we mean is that you won't be responsible for catching a plot or story mistake, but if you find them and we agree, we'll pay you a bonus for each one we use. For example, you are editing a story and notice that the main character gets a call from his sister in Chapter 5. Unfortunately she died in a boating accident in Chapter 1, and the main character isn't shocked about the call at all. In fact, it looks like the author may have just made a really ba...

Hi, I published couple of books last year. I've two more manuscripts ready for intensive editing. Here're details: 1) GENRE: YA ROMANCE. WORD COUNT: 93000(including blurb & all). Tentative start date: 11/5, Finish Date: 10/6. 2) GENRE: HORROR (it's a part of series, though a standalone story). WORD COUNT: 40000. Tentative start date: 10/6, Finish Date: 30/6. Okay, so I'd probably be going for multiple editing rounds for both the books (until, I'm fully satisfied). What I'm looking for is the editor proficient in dealing with non-native speakers, the one who can turn the manuscript very simple to read by removing odd words, awkward writing style and who have interest in the genre. Also one who can work on facts and get them right if required. My first story is based in UK & second in US. Though both are written in US English, I want them to be even I'd select my choices based on your proposal, reviews and your bid (I'm an independent writer, so always tight on budget. Ple...
