Editing Services

After years of helping people with everything from résumés to policy manuals to science fiction, Paula got her first professional copyediting gig in the year 2000. She was hooked. At about the same time, Doug started developing and editing books and games for a small military history publisher. He was hooked. Fifteen years and many satisfied clients later, Paula, Doug, and their associates offer a range of editing services to authors, publishers, and other organizations.

Developmental Editing

The developmental editor helps you shape your manuscript into an effective whole for maximum impact. This type of editing works on the level of chapters and ideas. The editor gives you guidance to help you include the material your readers want and need, leave out extraneous or redundant material, and present everything in a well-organized structure. Learn more about our developmental editing services.


The copyeditor works mostly on the level of paragraphs and sentences, and the focus is primarily on grammar, punctuation, spelling, and style. Copyeditors also polish citations and reference lists, and they can format a book manuscript so it flows smoothly into layout. Learn more about our copyediting services.
