We're an assembled team of editors with more than 75 years' combined experience in the publishing industry. Each member of our team holds at least an MA in either English, Literature, or Creative Writing and has worked for both major and indie publishing firms for at least 10 years. In addition to editing other authors' books, some of them have also published their own bestselling works.
We call ourselves "The Word Slayers" not because we take pleasure in destroying your work, but because we revel in breaking it down to rebuild it as strongly as possible. As William Faulkner said - and we've paraphrased above - "In writing, you must kill all your darlings." We know your manuscript is your "baby", but as with most children, giving them tough love is often the most effective way to prepare them for the world. Our editing team's hard-nosed, meticulous approach to perfecting authors' writings has resulted in dozens of bestselling titles from scribes worldwide. Let us show you just how much of a difference our considerable editing & proofreading talents can make in helping your literary dreams become a reality.
When you submit your work to us for a free evaluation, each member of our editing team will perform a customized sample edit, complete with suggested changes & revisions, as well as notes on how to improve story flow, character development, plot, and overall presentation - all while preserving your own unique voice and style. This ensures you get assigned the best possible editor to help your manuscript shine.
We're confident we can give your work the best editing treatment possible.
If we can't, we'll give you a full refund, no questions asked.
