Editorial Services

Best of Books is pleased to announce that we now offer editorial services! We have a team of skilled editors who can help make your book manuscript polished and ready for publication!


Services our editors provide:

  • Developmental Editing involves reorganizing, clarifying, and reworking a manuscript for structure and content. This is a step usually taken when the manuscript is earlier in its creation, done before copy editing.

  • Copy Editing involves editing for grammar (such as spelling, punctuation, word usage, etc.); clarifying meaning; and generally polishing language.

  • Fact Checking/Citation Checking involves ensuring the accuracy of quotes and facts by referring to original sources, as well as ensuring the accuracy of citations and/or footnotes per Chicago style. This service might be done in combination with copy editing.

  • Self-Publishing Assistance involves the editor guiding the author through self-publishing their manuscript using the IngramSpark platform, including layout, formatting, etc.

To ensure you and your manuscript get the best editing work possible, we will match you with an editor with experience in your book’s subject (e.g., your mystery will be edited by someone who loves a whodunit just as much as you do!).

If you would like more information about our editorial services, feel free to email Jenny, the Editorial Services Coordinator, at jenny@righterofwords.com.
