Core Editorial

Nothing reduces the professionalism and impact of a book more than typos and grammar errors. WestBow Press Core Editorial Services provide a careful review of the very basics of your book, including grammar, spelling, punctuation, capitalization, and sentence structure. What you get is a clean, professionally-edited manuscript, and the peace of mind that comes along with knowing that your book is ready for readers.

Small Book Review with Editing (Under 5,000 Words)

Our editors carefully review your full manuscript (under 5,000 words) and provide you with the edits best suited to your book. This all-inclusive service is a combination of our Editorial Assessment, Line Editing, and Content Editing services.


An experienced editor will correct errors in spelling, grammar, and punctuation in your manuscript.

Editorial Assessment

An editorial specialist will provide you with an Editorial Report on the editorial status of a portion of your manuscript (typically the first chapter or about 1,700 words), as well as a sample edit of a portion of your work.

Cover Copy Polish

Our experts will take your back cover copy and turn it into professional, marketable material.

Line Editing

Your manuscript will be thoroughly reviewed to catch and correct any errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation, capitalization and syntax. Light recommendations on word choice and improving overall readability will also be provided.

Content Editing

Your editor will not only review your manuscript at the Line Editing level for grammar, spelling, etc., but will also focus on restructuring sentences and streamlining the style of your work.

Content Editing Plus

This service is ideal for manuscripts that need more work on sentence structure and grammar than Content Editing can provide.
