Editing, Proofreading, Ghostwriting
L. Noelle McLaughlin - lnoellemclaughlin.com
Laura is my favorite proofreader. She has been editing for over twenty years and she still loves it. She's a word nerd, a grammar geek, and she's exactly who you need to make sure your manuscript is polished and letter-perfect.
If you break a sentence she will fix it. If you invert the letters "I" and "E" she will see it. She will note it, correct it, and send you a fully detailed report – and she'll do it all happily.
I give her my highest recommendation!
Book Interior Layout
Xander Stone Ink - xanderstoneink.com
Salvatore is a passionate artist. He writes, he plays music, and he will layout your book for a good price!
Book Design Templates - bookdesigntemplates.com
The good folks from thebookdesigner.com have made several very good templates for the book interior. Maybe you can't shell out the cash for a layout designer, or maybe you just want more control over the process and don't mind getting your finger grimey with a bunch of ones and zeros. If so, these templates are for you!
Vision Press - myvisionpress.com
I also create book interiors but I rarely have the time to. If you are interested in getting a book interior designed by me, use the form on my contact page and I will let you know if I am free to do layout work.
