"...writing yourself into history. Your words, your thoughts, your story, it all becomes stained in this narrative of the world." - Kimberly Bowman
We offer a well-rounded experience for authors looking to publish their work. We don't just walk you through the actual process of self-publishing, but we ensure that your book is marketed and promoted to your target audience, as well as building your professional character and skill set.
Copy Editing & Content Editing
Copy editing is about improving style, formatting, and accuracy. Copy editing is about making sure there aren't inconsistencies, and that the style flows well — in addition to being grammatically correct. There are different levels of copy editing: light, medium, and heavy. Light copy editing might consist of double-checking accuracy and taking care of most grammatical issues. Medium copy editing includes heavier lifting, such as correcting flow and re-working some of the text. With heavy copy editing, the editor might re-structure some paragraphs, or heavily correct style, flow, and grammar.
When you are involved in content editing, the work is much more intensive. You might need to add things that were left out or re-write sections of content. This takes copy editing to the next level and can include some level of content creation along with making corrections.
Content Editing & Copy Editing are both a flat fee of $20 per hour. We no longer offer Proofreading Services.

You're a writer. You have no idea how to go about marketing your work. And you just want to write, right? Not right. As an indie author, you need to be able to market yourself and your work. Even if you choose to hire representation, what are you going to do once the book is published? If you don't keep up the momentum, you are not going to gain a readership, and if you don't gain a readership, you are not going to make money. We help you learn how to market yourself and your work.
