"Let's eat grandma."   "Let's eat, Grandma."   — Editing can save lives.

At Breezeway, we are readers as well as writers and editors. Book editing matters to us. If a book isn’t edited, readers may spot grammatical errors you didn’t know were there, holes in your logic, or loose ends you forgot to tie up. Every mistake in grammar, spelling, sentence structure, and overall organization—anything that trips up the smooth flow of ideas from you to your reader—is a potential minefield, and enough errors can mean failure, no matter how hard you worked at getting your ideas across or how beautiful your published book may appear.

Professional book editing is a time-consuming process requiring education and skill. Getting the plot down on paper is one thing; getting it on paper so that everyone who reads it "gets it" is something else. Book editing refines ideas, catches misused words, and makes sure the grammar is as close to immaculate as is possible. As professional writers and editors, we know what book editing takes, and we’re happy to share our expertise.

HEAVY CONTENT EDIT

Some books have problems that are embedded in the structure. We'll look for loose ends, poor characterization, and other issues that keep it from realizing its full potential.
