Welcome to Perfect Word Editing Services
Helping you find the perfect words
Linda Harris, Owner and Editor
The publishing industry has changed. It used to be that an author could submit a manuscript with a good idea to a publisher, and the editor would help the author shape it into a saleable book. Now, authors need pristine manuscripts. Editors like me can help you get your manuscript to the place where a publisher will be impressed by your writing.
If you're interested in some form of independent publishing, outside editing is even more important. Your book needs to look like those coming from traditional publishers. Whether you hire a subsidy publisher or do it all on your own, editing is of utmost importance. I can help you develop your best product.
I specialize in the following types of editing:
No job is too small or too detailed.
- Nonfiction books for adults
- Nonfiction book proposals
- Children's books (including nonfiction and fiction picture books and chapter books)
If you don't see what you need, contact me and we'll discuss your needs.
