Why do you need an EDITOR?
There is nothing that will destroy the credibility of your writing faster than a book filled with errors. You don't get a second chance to make a great first impression. You can't undo an overabundance of negative reviews, either.

Writing can be beautiful because of the words an author chooses to use; but it can also be beautiful because of the choice of punctuation. —Adam J. Calhoun
Copy Editing & What it Includes
Line editing extensively streamlines your story for grammar. We focus on paragraph and sentence structure, word choice, dialogue, and consistency of tone. The line edit also IS and/or includes copy editing—such as attention to grammar, punctuation, formatting, and consistency in names, dates, and other plot elements and flow. You should hire a copy editor for line editing of your work prior to publishing. All writers can benefit from line editing, and it’s especially important before you submit to agents or self-publish.
Basic, yet professional formatting now offered for clients. Includes formatted files for Createspace and KDP/Amazon. (Files for Draft2Digital, Smashwords, and more, including Mobi, ePub, & PDF files upon request. iTunes available for an additional fee.)
Proofreading is a service provided after your manuscript has been edited by either RMJ MS or another professional editor. It is an important step any author should take prior to publishing. Final Eyes Proofreading Services should be prior to final formatting. And now RMJ MS has the staff to do just that—another set of eyes on your manuscript is important. Now you can have it done by us.
