Writerful Books provides book editing services for authors including editing, beta reading and manuscript assessments.

Writerful Books provides a range of book editing services for authors looking to hire an editor for developmental editing, line editing, copy editing, proofreading, beta reading or a manuscript assessment.

We highly recommend that you hire a professional book editor before you submit your manuscript to a publisher. Submitting your manuscript too early is the primary reason for rejection letters from publishers.

Many new writers don’t fully appreciate the difference between copy editing and line editing, let alone the effect an editor can have on a book’s success. Appreciating these differences can save you time and money as well as help you communicate more effectively with the editor before they begin editing your manuscript.
