In addition to offering its own, carefully selected titles, Strong Tower Publishing helps authors through the confusing process of self-publishing by offering a variety of pre-publishing services, such as manuscript evaluation, copy editing, and proofing, as well as rewriting, developmental editing, and mentoring. Services are offered for both theological and non-theological topics.
Before deciding on which service to use — especially for first-time authors — we recommend reading our short article, "Self-Publishing First Steps: Where Do I Start?" For authors who feel that their manuscripts are ready for professional editing and analysis, however, we offer the following services:
Top level (skim and high-level analysis; $1 per 250-word page)
Detailed (detailed read of every page; $2 per 250-word page)
$3–$4 per 250-word page. Mechanical editing, including punctuation, grammar, usage, and style.
$2 per 250-word page. For professional authors or previously edited books only.
Developmental / Substantive Editing & Rewriting
