Mystery Editing Services

Offering the most affordable book editing solution for self-published authors

Our editors offer great value book editing, proofreading, and manuscript assessment services for authors.

Our editors edit manuscripts using the track changes function of Microsoft Word. This function allows you to move easily between changes and accept any or all of the modifications proposed by the editor. Suggestions and comments are shown in the margin and are easy to accept into your work.

We return two copies of your work—a track changes version and a clean copy with all the changes already incorporated.

Minimum number of words is 20,000; this means that if your manuscript is less than 20,000 words long, we will charge based on the minimum number of words.
