Proofreading & Editing

Seeing a typo in your printed book is a lot like watching the last train leave the station – there’s no way you can catch that train or fix that typo. Don’t put too much faith in your spellchecker, and let us professionally proofread and edit your book in English and Spanish. We’ll deal with grammar, style, and voice.

Price: USD 50 for up to 500 words.


Want to create an enchanting children’s story but lack the inspiration or time? We’ll write the story for you. Just let us know who’s your target reader, what you want the book to be about, and approximate word count. We offer one free revision and we’ll transfer full rights to the story to you.

Price: USD 200 per 400 words.


The world doesn’t speak only one language so why limit your book’s audience? Translating your children’s book will help more readers to discover your story. We can translate your book to and from English, Russian, German, Spanish, Arabic, Serbian and Bosnian. If your language is not on this list, contact us.
