Wild Ink Publishing is a traditional publisher with a passion for helping all authors and poets. But we also believe that self-publishing is a viable and rewarding path. We know how hard and intimidating self-publishing can be. As such, we offer a number of services specifically for the self-publishing author. We have a talented team of writers, editors, marketing experts, and artists ready to help you. All while you stay firmly in the driver’s seat of your project and retain that creative control that makes self-publishing beneficial for so many.

EDITING SERVICES

Manuscript Review

With your manuscript review, we will read the entire piece, making detailed comments after each chapter. This is similar to a beta read, where a friend or family member reads your submission before you make deep revisions. The difference is that we have the expertise and training to give you professional feedback.

Copy Editing

Copy editing is checking grammar, spelling, punctuation, and style before proofreading. As your copy editor, we will fix any problems that have to do with transitions, flow, pacing, as well as light fact-checking.

Sensitivity Reading

Our sensitivity readers will help to make sure that your writing is culturally and medically accurate. We will find literary readers who match the demographics of your story to make sure you are writing from a place of understanding and respect. We will make sure that your writing is sensitive towards others and the subject matter.

Developmental Editing

Developmental editing is a deep dive into your manuscript. We will focus on the big picture paying close attention to style and structure, addressing plot holes, problems with characterization, inconsistencies, pacing, and genre-related problems. Essentially, we become your book doctor.

Proofreading

After your manuscript has been edited and laid out, we will go through it one more time searching for typographical errors. We will not look to change your wording in this phase, we will only look for typos and formatting errors.
