Joshua Tree Digital provides editing services to authors. Many times we like a book we have received from a Query Letter from an author, but the book is not ready to be published.
While we provide editing for the books we plan on publishing, we expect them to be at a certain level of quality before we can commit to having them published. Since authors at this stage did not know what or where to go next, we began to offer Editing Services so they could bring theirs books to the point they were ready for submission to be published.
While this site is not designed to go into great detail about the process of editing— each book is at a different stage—below are the different types of editing which we provide:
• Copy Editing
oshua Tree Publishing will request that the author provide a sample of the manuscript to be edited. After reviewing the work, we will provide the author a cost for the editing services to bring their manuscript to level needed to be published. Once completed, the process of publishing—and additional editing—will begin on the author’s book.
