For two decades, our editors were required to have traditional publishing house experience to join this network, and most still have publishing house background. However --
The #1 question we receive: Do we work with editors who intend to self-publish? Our answer --
Yes! We've become big proponents of self-publishing, and we've worked with many self-published authors who hold themselves to a high standard. Our own standards have not changed. Our editors who have self-publishing experience only must pass the same entry tests as editors with publisher experience.
If you intend to self-publish you don't need to shape your manuscript for literary agent representation or a particular publisher. Instead, you and your editor have the freedom to realize your vision without literary agent or publisher considerations. A professionally edited self-published book helps get the positive feedback you want.
Book-Editing.com is a service for writers that:
...screens, tests, and monitors book editors, proofreaders, indexers, and publishing consultants. (Only 2% of applicants pass our infamous proofreading, writing, and editing tests.)
...allows you to locate and have direct contact with highly experienced book editing, proofreading, book indexing, and publishing professionals through one site (so you can stop your online shopping).
...helps writers avoid self-appointed but untested "copy editors," "proofreaders," and other online pitfalls and scams that target writers. (Anyone can put up a website and claim to be a book editor, claim to be USA-based, and fabricate positive feedback.)
Although our quality and ethical standards are among the highest in the business, our prices are not.
Our goal is the best possible service at a reasonable price.
