The Book Editor

“Writing is 50% putting words on paper, 50% in the editing.”

There is nothing to writing - Ernest Hemingway

Hiring an editor for your book may seem like an expensive exercise, and one that you shouldn’t need to spend money on — because your book is already perfect, right?

Any writer who’s serious about publishing their book should get a second opinion, and a fresh pair of eyes to experience your story from an outside perspective.
It is entirely crucial for a successful writer to have someone who can help them discuss what the reader may have trouble understanding; someone to point out any plot holes or inconsistencies, and someone to generally help polish your book to a publishable, professional state.

Welcome to The Book Editor’s website.

The Book Editor provides a number of book-related services, from basic proofreading to strategic book marketing, all with honest timekeeping. For any type of written work — books, essays, or bid proposals — The Book Editor will deliver you a great result for a reasonable price.
