Are you a first-time author? Are you ready to self-publish and share your book with the world? Indigo Stone loves working with NEWBIES. We offer caring, compassionate, but critically needed editing services.

Indigo Stone Offers Editorial Evaluation

An editorial evaluation is a critical first overview of your manuscript by a professional editor. We help you hatch a revision strategy to revolutionize your writing. Your chosen editor will read through the complete manuscript and provide compassionate, in-depth feedback regarding story pieces such as plot, style, characterization, structure, and consistency. Feedback from an editorial evaluation can lead to remarkable changes to your manuscript. This service will identify your book’s strengths and weaknesses.

We Copy Edit

Copy editing will help you calibrate your book’s text. The focus is on small details you might not have considered. A copy edit will address embarrassing typos, grammatical or punctuation errors, anomalies, incorrect facts, and inconsistencies. Overall, the purpose of copy editing is to align the book’s language with the writer’s intent. Indigo Stone will help you create the most readable version of the book.

Indigo Stone Provides Proofreading

Working with a proofreader is your last stop in the editing process. Our top-notch proofreaders will read with the absorption of a bookworm but the sharp eye of an editor. To ensure your book is ready to hit bookshelves or the digital world, our proofreaders will step in and double-check EVERYTHING. We make sure that your files are free from spelling mistakes, missing punctuation, and grammar errors. We address tiny, subtle mistakes that could ruin a reader’s enjoyment of your writing.
