We can develop your texts into an easy-to-read book with clear visual information categories and stylish diagrams that can also be repurposed for presentations and other uses.

“You did a great a job on it now that I got to see your editing work closely and the notes you suggested…”

—Daniel Abebe

Create a Visually Engaging Book

Visual information categories enhance a book’s design adding value to books because buyers can quickly see that they can get information quickly and find their way back to it without having to read the whole book.

Publish to advance your business goals.

We can help you develop an effective publishing strategy. Whether you have finished a draft manuscript or are looking to create a manuscript from multiple company documents, we can help you take it to the next level with our developmental editing services. We can develop your texts into a clear and easy-to-read manuscript with helpful visual information categories such as tip boxes, checklists, and diagrams that can also be repurposed for presentations and other uses.

With our industry knowledge, we can also help you with planning decisions such as whether it is best to publish as one book or multiple volumes, the best trim size and design approach for your point of purchase, how to plan for color and B&W economically, and how to incorporate ebooks or e-guides.

In this example, the book is created in color, the first print edition is in B&W to save costs, the ebook editions are color (color doesn’t affect ebook costs), and book diagrams and tables are repurposed for slide presentations. Throughout the process, we can give you cost-cutting tips and publishing best practices for saving time and reducing errors.

Reduce the risks of costly and embarrassing mistakes with professional editing and proofreading. We’ll preserve your unique voice, while editing for grammar, punctuation, and other aspects of style.

Copy Editing

Give your texts the finishing touches it needs and to reduce the chances of errors ending up in the printed book. We can check all your texts including tables, figures, and cover texts. We can also check citations, consistency of facts, credit lines, and permissions. We understand the differences between U.S. and U.K. English and can match the right style guide with your project, as well as create a custom style guide for specialty publishing. We can also do indexing.

Call us so we can discuss your project needs. We’ll give you an editing estimate and answer your questions.
