How To Use The Book Editing Associates Website
Choose A Book Editor
Review our editors and submit a sample using our submission form. You can select more than one editor, and we can help you find a good match.
We send your submission to the editor(s) you have selected, or that we feel will be a good match.
Select Your Editor
Our editors will provide you with a sample edit and a quote. Once terms are agreed upon they get to work on your manuscript.
Professional, Ethical Editing Services
Our book editors and proofreaders work with nonfiction and fiction manuscripts targeted for literary agents, traditional publishers, or self-publishing services such as Kindle Direct Publishing, Smashwords, BookBaby, Barnes & Noble Press, Kobo, IngramSpark, Draft2Digital, and Lulu.
Even in the age of self-publishing, our standards have not changed. Our editors who have self-publishing experience only must pass the same entry tests as editors with in-house 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.
Have your nonfiction or fiction manuscript, short story, script, poem, screenplay, or article professionally edited before submitting to a literary agent, publisher, or book printer.
A professionally edited self-published book helps get the positive feedback you and your editor want.
