They are able to offer their services at a high quality and with only little time to read into your specific subject.
What a book editor does
One of the most, if not the most important step in publishing a book is the editing process. A book editor is generally responsible for much more than what most of us can imagine. We usually think of copy editing, spelling and grammar checks etc. when we hear the word editor. But in fact there are a lot more responsibilities involved for a book editor before an author’s manuscript is ready for the market. Apart from checking spelling and grammar, a book editor also checks for parts of the book that conflict regarding content, style and word choice. In some cases an editor may be asked to check facts for accuracy throughout the book and correct those if any. Copy editing may also consist in making sure that the reading of the book flows naturally. Sometimes a character might have a certain feature like the colour of hair being blonde but in one chapter, mistakenly the author writes that the hair is brown. The editor would catch this error and have it corrected. Setting the font, text size, illustration positions and page design are also responsibilities of the editor. To ensure the meeting of all your requirements and the high quality of your work, our book editors work in close contact with you. This way we guarantee that the final result is a book that is ready to be submitted for printing.
