If you’ve finished your first draft, or you’re a few drafts in and need someone to check that it all makes sense before you send it off to an agent/publisher or self-publish, this is the editing service for you. Most agents and publishers will expect any manuscript to have been through a rigorous round of editing like this before submission, and we’ll make sure that your work matches industry standards.
