Writing coaches provide discipline, serve as a professional sounding board, and to offer creative collaboration. Writing a book can be demanding, and knowing that your coach has an expectation of deliverables can prove beneficial. This kind of support is invaluable to many authors and pushes them to be their best.


Editing is a crucial step in publishing a book. Having someone review your work can make the difference between a flawless file and one with mistakes you’ll wish you had caught.

This page serves as a resource to help you navigate your editing needs. Editing services can run the gamut – from standard proofreading to more in-depth services such as manuscript evaluation or developmental editing of plot and characters. 

Some things to keep in mind:

  • All editing and proofreading should take place before providing CTP your files. We provide PDF proofs for final review and approval before printing, but to save yourself extra time and money, all of your edits should be completed before this step.


  • All editing correspondence and payment should take place directly between you and the editor. CTP is not affiliated with the editors listed on this page.


  • For information on rates, timetables, and services, please refer to the listed editor websites.
