We know writers invest a large amount of time, effort, and emotion into their books. XterraWeb can help ensure your book reflects your hard work with our combination proofreading and editing process. We can also help promote your book with promotions and reviews on our blog.
Editing is about enhancing and polishing your book manuscript by eliminating any possible grammatical errors, typos, or other mistakes. Editing can help ensure your final manuscript for your book is well-written, engaging, and enjoyable for your readers.
