Developmental editing 

If you need help with bigger-picture elements like structure, order, and flow, Jon can work with you to developmentally edit your book.  

Copy editing

Erika can edit your book at the sentence level to make sure your content is clear, concise, consistent, and correct. She’s familiar with many style guides, including Chicago Manual of Style, APA, and MLA. Check out Erika’s editing portfolio and testimonials.


It’s crucial to get a second pair of eyes on your manuscript to find all remaining inconsistencies or lingering typos. Once your book has been edited, we recommend one final proofreading pass. We’ll help you publish your best work.
