Please ensure that you are 100% happy with your manuscript before sending it to one of our copy editors. Copy Editing is considered to be one of the final stages.
Opps! Unfortunately, our Editors are only accepting Fiction at the Moment
This may change at a later date. We do accept Fiction that's based on fact - for example, work that is loosely based on a true story.
Opps! Unfortunately, our Editors are not accepting manuscripts specifically aimed for this Market.
This may change at a later date, however, currently we are solely concentrating our efforts on manuscripts aimed at an Adult Market.
Service status update: Looks like there are a few manuscripts in the queue. We're still accepting but just expect a slight delay with your order.
