We hold a high level of expectation for the books we edit!

Your book is in the best of hands with Author One Stop. Why? Every Author One Stop editor has worked for a major publisher, edited books that have sold to major publishers, or has edited a New York Times bestseller.

Here's what people are saying about our editing services...

We edited GRANT SCHNARR's YA novel, The Guardian Angel Diary (Swedenborgian Press) which received a special shout out from "Publishers Weekly" at Book Expo America!


JOANNA GIANGARDELLA'S riveting memoir was edited by Author One Stop.


1. Ask for our email application form and fill it out.

2. When we receive your application, we will have a brief conversation to discuss your book.

3. We will choose the editor who we believe is the best fit for your project. You are welcome to review their credentials.

4. The editor who is assigned to your project will briefly review your materials to get an idea as to how long it will take to perform a Read Through and Written Analysis for your manuscript.

5. With your authorization, the editor will perform the Read Through and Written Analysis so we can assess if we believe your book has the potential to be offered a publishing contract. You will also receive a detailed report that lists any major problems. Examples of how to fix the problems are offered.

6. Unless you would like us to fix the major problems for you through ghostwriting, you will do the necessary rewrites as detailed in the Written Analysis.

7. Your book will then come back to us for editing. We can usually edit 4-6 pages per hour to polish text. If sections are out of sequence, putting material in its proper order can take longer. Everybody's writing is different, which means that some projects will go faster than others.

8. After the book has been edited, we recommend a final proofreading round to stop typos in their tracks and correct punctuation.


A Rate Sheet and Confidentiality Agreement (NDA) are included with the Application Form. We accept all major credit cards and checks. All editing services are payable upon retainer and may be paid incrementally.

For a 10-minute complementary consultation to discuss your Book Project, contact: Author One Stop, (831) 726-3153.
