Your Satisfaction Is Guaranteed
Looking for a professional book editor? You’ve come to the right place!

But I know from experience on both sides of the fence that network members are always the best. We hired a copyeditor through the network, and she is outstanding. Our goal is the best possible service at a reasonable price. After having used other editorial services, those offered by Book Editing Associates was what I hoped all the others had been. Have your nonfiction or fiction manuscript, short story, script, poem, screenplay, or article professionally edited before submitting to a literary agent, publisher, or book printer.

Our professional book editors, proofreaders, indexers, and page layout designers work with manuscripts targeted for traditional publishers or self-publishing services. For two decades, our editors were required to have traditional publishing house experience to join this network, and most still have publishing house background. The 1 question we receive: Do we work with editors who intend to self-publish?

Our own standards have not changed. Our editors who have self-publishing experience only must pass the same entry tests as editors with publisher experience. Instead, you and your editor have the freedom to realize your vision without literary agent or publisher considerations.

A professionally edited self-published book helps get the positive feedback you want. Get Your Free Quote Need help with your submission? Call M-F, 11a-8p eastern.

This is the first book I have written and had been searching for a company to proofread my manuscript. I wanted to ensure it went into the right hands. And I have no regrets choosing PaperTrue. The work was completed within the stated time frame and the notes were very clear and constructive.

I would most certainly recommend them as a trusted, friendly and reliable company to work with. Richard was my first point of contact from the useful pop-up chat on their user-friendly website. He answered all the questions I had and was very professional. I received my manuscript back from Rebecca from the editing team. Her comments were very professional and helpful in adding the necessary tweaks to improve my manuscript effectively.

Thanks to Papertrue I am well and truly on my way to publishing my first book and would come back again should I write a second. I was totally amazed at how good they were. It definitely showed all the areas where I had many errors that myself did not notice. And that was after many times of revising my manuscript. Rather than revising a thousand times and not noticing any major errors.

I will be editing my work more carefully with a lot more thought into how paragraph and sentence is written. And so from the sample edit I shall be using their services, to hopefully get a fully acceptable and well published book out there.

Thank you to the Papertrue team. I took every single piece of advice you gave me to improve my work. I would just like to say thank you so much for the incredible job you have done. It is clear you must have worked incredibly hard into the early hours to get my book back to me in the time frame you did. Thank you so much for your critique. Up until I read your summary of what you thought of the content of my book, I had no idea how good it was.

Even though I know the stats are against me, I now have the determination going forward. I think you have turned a good book into a great book. It was worth every penny of the fee that I paid. I took a risk and it really paid off.

It was apparent that you must have read my book all the way through at least twice.

Developmental Editing. Developmental editing peels back the layers of your story to understand what makes it tick. Fiction authors can expect feedback, insight, and advice on: storytelling, structure, plot, characterization, dialogue, viewpoint and narration, hooks, tone, pacing and progression, setting, voice, and writing mechanics. Editing a manuscript is a specialized service and an author requires a professional book editor rather than a generalist editor or an amateur. We employ experienced book editors who have considerable experience in the publishing industry – many have previously worked for major publishing houses.
