The truth is... it's all in the edit.
If you want your book to be taken seriously in the competitive picture book world then you need to make sure that it's written properly. As your school teacher used to tell you: spelling, grammar and punctuation is SO important. Don't overlook the basics or you'll be kicking yourself later when your readers point out those tiny mistakes you managed to miss.
Any 'real' publisher would say that it's always worth having your book edited before sending it to print. We know it's ridiculously easy to miss mistakes in your own book, even if you've checked the story a hundred times. That's where we can help!
We have a team of professional writers on hand to help you edit your book. Led by Fi's sister Becs who is a freelance copywriter (find out more about Becs on the website for their business Fi & Becs Design & Wording) our editors will thoroughly read and edit your manuscript to make sure every single word is spot on.
How does the editing work?
Once you send across your book (as a Word document is best!) our eagle-eyed editors will carefully read your manuscript from start to finish. We will:
- Check your spelling and punctuation.
- Proof-read your story to make sure that it is perfect.
- Provide tips and suggestions to make that your story flows properly and reads well from beginning to end.
