We always recommend our authors have their work professionally edited before publishing. This helps to polish the work, as well as catch any spelling or grammar mistakes that may have previously gone undetected. We can provide that service here starting at $0.02 per word, or the author is welcome to work with an editor of his or her choosing.

*Some books with interior color images are subject to an additional fee for handling and distribution.
