Checking Text on a Document
Any manuscript needs another set of eyes on it, and as expensive as it can be, it's a necessary part of any project. But we know, as necessary as it is, it can also be an impossibly expensive part that many indies struggle to pay for. That's why it's so important to us to provide quality editing services at affordable prices. And with ten years in the industry coupled with experience at two small publishing presses, we have the qualifications you need to feel assured you're leaving your project in capable hands.
