WordsRU Book Services
A book is so much more than a first draft. In fact, some would say that the "real" work of writing does not begin until after the first draft is finished. That is why WordsRU's book services division offers options for every step of the pre-publication process. Whether you are preparing for submission to a publishing company or are planning to self-publish, WordsRU has the tools to ensure that your manuscript reaches its maximum potential.
Once upon a time, publishing companies were willing to invest in authors and take early drafts all the way to their final stages. However, the transformation of publishing from a nurturing to a profit-driven industry, as well as recent economic restrictions, means that it is more important than ever for aspiring authors to bring a polished product to the table. In some cases, it means that a writer's best chance of success is to publish the book themselves.
No matter what your manuscript's current state is or what your plans for it are, WordsRU's team of talented book editors can help you bring out the full potential of your work. Whether you are preparing your manuscript for submission to a publishing company/agent or are planning to self-publish, WordsRU can provide:
- Developmental Letters
- Final Proofread
- Cover and Query Letter Editing

A first draft is never perfect the first time around. In many cases, the manuscript can be vastly improved by deleting entire scenes, combining characters, and changing the order of events, the point of view, and/or the perspective. There is no reason for you to invest in a line-by-line edit of text that you might end up changing entirely. Instead, let WordsRU's book editors show you how and where to improve on all aspects of your book.
In the developmental letter option, one of our editors performs a close reading of your manuscript, making short comments on the document to mark examples of issues. After completing the reading, the editor will write a 5 to 10 page letter identifying issues, providing suggestions and guidance, and assessing the manuscript on a number of levels, including:
- Perspective and point of view
- Character development and consistency
- Plot development
- Scene formation/description
- Formation of paragraphs and sentences
- Grammatical, punctuation, and spelling patterns
WordsRU's developmental letter service provides you with the objective feedback and tools you need to hone your story and improve your story-telling ability. This is an excellent option for anyone who has just completed a first draft and wants advice on how to improve the work as a whole.
Once you feel confident in the overall organization, pacing, content, and consistency of your manuscript as a whole, a proper copyedit can make the language of your book really shine. WordsRU's expert copyeditors stand ready to assess every line of your manuscript with an eye for improvement.
A copyedit is so much more than the correction of basic grammar and spelling mistakes! Our editors assimilate to your unique style and tone, and enhance your manuscript from the inside, altering sentences and paragraphs to improve:
- Awkward phrasing
The copyedit service also includes a basic grammar and spell check, as well as improvements to sentence structure, organization, and word choice. Our editors provide comments to indicate specific areas that you might consider cutting or expanding, or that comprise an inconsistency of plot or character. Copyediting is recommended for manuscripts that are finished with major revisions and rewriting and require work at the language level.
Publishing companies and agents have submission guidelines for a reason; there is nothing more odious than struggling with a manuscript that does not follow directions. If you are confident in your manuscript's organization, pacing, and language, and are ready to begin submitting the manuscript to agents and publishing companies, WordsRU's formatting service will give your book a professional polish that shows you mean business.
Rather than dealing with the tedious work of ensuring the appropriate spacing, headers and footers, pagination, indentation, and margining is followed on every single page, let WordsRU's detail-oriented formatters do the work for you. Formatting service also includes the preparation and packaging of tables, figures, and images, where applicable.
Given your manuscript, supplementary material, and the relevant submission guidelines, WordsRU will provide you with an impeccably formatted document, organized supplementary files and folders, and a personalized checklist of steps to take before mailing your manuscript. With WordsRU, the submissions process is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
Copyediting and formatting, while essential to the bookmaking process, do not guarantee a print-perfect product. In fact, the rearranging and transformations that are integral to these processes sometimes result in typos, odd sentences, and missing text.
Make sure that your book is truly ready for the public eye! WordsRU will assign an objective, fastidious editor to make a final pass over the text to make sure that there are no unresolved formatting, design, or textual issues. Let WordsRU bring your manuscript to its perfect shine!
Cover and Query Letters
Your cover or query letter is the face of your book, and publishing companies see thousands of submissions every year. A dynamite letter will inspire publishing companies and agents to read your first pages, while a so-so letter might mean that your manuscript goes in the recycle bin without having a sentence of it read.
WordsRU's knowledgeable editors make sure that your book stands out from the crowd! They will not only give your cover or query letter a thorough edit to correct basic language difficulties, but will also give your letter that necessary punch to be noticed above and beyond the competition, as well as provide you with invaluable feedback on how to improve the letter's impact.
