The ebook might be the next big thing in publishing, but in a market flooded with competition, only a high-quality product will stand out from the crowd. Before having your manuscript converted to an ebook, make sure that your readers won’t be distracted from what you have to say by the types of errors that are all too common in so many of today’s digital books.
The editors at Polished Paper can help you keep readers’ attention from the first page of your book to the last by checking your manuscript for inconsistencies of grammar, punctuation, and formatting. What’s more, your editor can step back for a clear view of your work as a whole, highlighting apparent inconsistencies and omissions such as can easily slip past an author in the heat of composition. In the process, you can get an outsider’s perspective on what you have to say, complete with comments and queries that help you ensure that your message is coming across in clear and compelling terms.
At Polished Paper, ebooks aren’t treated like the poor cousins of traditional manuscripts—they’re given the same care and attention that has served us so well in translating ideas to paper over the years. If you’re worried that unclear phrasing is complicating central passages and obscuring your ideas, ask your editor to sharpen your phrasing, clarifying your meaning while preserving your voice. And if you’re concerned that you’ve left gaps in your narrative, your editor can stay alert for critical omissions that could leave your readers confused. It’s all part of Polished Paper’s commitment to excellence, from draft to finished product.
