Book Proofreading, Copy-editing and Book Editing in General
It’s an old adage that you can’t proofread your own writing. We prove this to ourselves every day (well, hopefully not EVERY day!) when we send emails out with a glaring typo. We wonder: How could we not have seen that?!?
Lucky Bat Book Editors provide basic proofreading. We don’t want you to be embarrassed by your published work any more than you do. We provide higher level services, too.
Lucky Bat Books Editing
Our editors come to you with backgrounds that include 20 years as journalists following AP Style. We’ve worked as book ghostwriters and editors. We’ve been published ourselves. Some of us have Masters degrees in Literature and related fields; some come to you with copy-editing experience on magazines and journals.
Our editors are here to make you look good.
Depending on your needs and desires, you might choose:
- Proofreading – Final proofread of manuscript, also this can be a proof of a scan
- Line-editing – Editing for typos, misspellings and grammatical errors
- Book editing – A deeper edit that goes well beyond line-editing . This is a review of prose and organizational structure, style, voice consistency, character development and all the things that make writing an art.
