For an independently published book to have any credibility, it needs sophisticated content development and editing.
Minneapolis, Minn. (PRWEB) June 06, 2017
The independent publishing industry is exploding. Print-on-demand technology now allows virtually anyone to publish a book. To navigate this complex new world, two successful self-published authors have developed AuthorScope, a professional services firm that provides aspiring and established authors with the expert guidance to elevate a manuscript or book proposal from mediocre to fabulous.
“For an independently published book to have any credibility, it needs sophisticated content development and editing,” states Gary Lindberg, co-founder of AuthorScope. “Even leading authors (or their publishers) hire professionals to help buff and polish the writing and prepare the manuscript for the next step. That is why we decided to launch AuthorScope.”
AuthorScope’s services include:
- Manuscript assessment
- Author coaching to refine the storyline of a novel or the content of a non-fiction book
- Developmental editing, line editing, copy editing
- Author publicity including press kit development and book launch campaigns
- Book marketing that includes AuthorScope’s proprietary social media campaign development
