Even the most experienced writers—those who have a number of books to their credit—know the difference that a professional book editing service will make on the final copy of any manuscript. Relying on the quality of another writer’s abilities is risky. Even if you have had the same writer helping you with your work for a long time, you should not expect the final result always to be consistent in style or syntax, or free of error. Your reputation and the acceptance of your book will depend on the professional book editing services you choose.
Some writers think they can get away with only using a proofreader to look over the final work to catch the errors that a ghostwriter might have left behind. They may even try to serve as their own proofreaders before submitting their books. The problem with these practices is that they are likely to catch only obvious errors in spelling or grammar, or the mistakes that have garbled their stories. Books that have been ghostwritten require a professional book editing service to address the syntax, grammar, word use, and every other area of the writing that will make the difference between a book that gets rejected and one that is a masterpiece.
