It isn't unusual for writers to be proficient in editing, as well as other aspects of the English language. You may have worked as an editor before striking out on your own as a writer, or you may have edited other writers' work. In either case, you could be tempted to rely on yourself for your own manuscript editing instead of professional book editing services to get your manuscript ready for submission.
However, as is widely known, this path is fraught with pitfalls. This is simply because our minds play tricks on us. The more familiar we are with a manuscript—our own, for example—the more our minds predict what we should read and prevent us from seeing what is actually there. The result is a slippery slope down which errors remain in the manuscript or areas to improve your book go unnoticed. This is exactly where professional book editing services can help even the most proficient editors.
No matter what your history as a writer or an editor has been up to this point, no one can see the errors or areas to improve your manuscript better than a professional editor who does not know your work. At DLA Editors, our goal is not to replace the voice and style of your writing, but to enhance it. Our aim is to provide you with the highest quality proofreading and professional book editing services to help you achieve the particular goals you have for your manuscript.
Writing a book isn't just about the story, but about the impact it has on the reader. The words you use have the power to evoke emotion and provoke thought, and give the reader a chance to consider new possibilities. Our professional book editing services will uncover every opportunity to make your manuscript better, improve its readability and give it greater impact.
