The Expert Editor’s Author Services

The Expert Editor is a popular option for authors requiring professional book editing, proofreading and manuscript assessment services. We also offer great value package deals.

We have helped many authors in Australia and overseas publish their books with success. Please find a select list here.

The Expert Editor’s four author services

Affordable professional editing and proofreading

The Expert Editor is the preferred choice of many authors. We provide affordable professional editing services, whilst maintaining an extremely high standard of work.

The reality is that publishing a book can be an expensive process and many authors have a budget for editorial services. We cater to every author, whether they have just completed their first book or have written several, by combining quality editing and proofreading with genuine affordability.

In particular, our exclusively online, efficient, and flexible operation results in lower prices for clients without sacrificing quality.

Professional book editors with considerable experience

We are meticulous when it comes to recruiting book editors. We receive hundreds of applications each year, but only a select few make it through our recruitment process. Therefore, our editors are all Australian based and have previously worked in the editorial departments of publishing houses or have taught professional editing at Australian universities.

This means that your editor will be confident, experienced and skilful in making the necessary changes to your manuscript to maximise your chances of success.

Choosing the right option

Although professional editing services are an essential part of achieving publishing success, choosing the right option can be daunting. This is especially true for a first-time author.

The founder of The Expert Editor, Brendan Brown, published a guest article on the Australian Society of Authors website outlining the professional editing options available in Australia, the questions an author should ask a prospective editor or editing company, and the information they should provide an author in return.
