“It seems strange to be writing this, since I was a member of the network, too. But I know from experience on both sides of the fence that network members are always the best. We hired a copyeditor through the network, and she is outstanding.”

Faith Brynie

Editorial Director, The Healthy Travel Company

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.

“To my surprise, the network response was fast, and gave me several excellent options. After having used other editorial services, those offered by Book Editing Associates was what I hoped all the others had been.”

The book editors and proofreaders posted on this site specialize in numerous fiction genres and nonfiction topics. 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.

Our professional book editors, proofreaders, indexers, and page layout designers work with manuscripts targeted for traditional publishers or self-publishing services.

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 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.
