Services Offered

As a longtime reader and book reviewer, I realize how important the editing process is. Nothing is more distracting to a reader than a book that is riddled with errors. I’ve come across several manuscripts that were good books but they needed a good editor. I have been editing and proofreading on the side for a few years but I thought it’s time to take it to the next level. My love for reading has fueled this desire to help others in their publishing endeavors.
I realize how expensive editing services can be, especially for self-published, independent, and small publishers.  This is who my services are geared toward. My goal is to offer affordable editing services to authors. I want to help authors turn their manuscripts into polished gems. My services include proofreading, researching, light copy editing to heavy copy editing. Please contact me at lookingglassediting@yahoo.com for an estimate.
