We use Magic Lamp Editing Services, a professional editor with more than 20 years’ experience in a wide variety of genres, if more than line edits and proofing are needed, or a manuscript calls for a ‘book doctor.’ In such cases, specified and agreed-upon fees apply, either hourly or per project. A fee schedule can be arranged.
NOTE: We are not a vanity press. We have high standards and do not automatically accept submissions. If we cannot accept an initial submission but think it has merit and can be marketable (through us or another publisher) with some work, we will tell you and offer that option.
