Hi, I’m George Verongos. I’m here to help you publish your book project :)
After ten years of teaching secondary English and Creative Writing, I started Literary Services in 2010 to help authors navigate the waters of publishing. I provide authors and publishers with the services and support they need from development to publication.
Each manuscript is assessed and reviewed. If I can be of service, I will provide you with an exact quote. Please be prepared to share a couple of chapters and your total word count.
DEVELOPMENT CRITIQUE W/ NOTES: I thoroughly review the development elements of your manuscript and suggest next steps to get you to the substantive editing phase.
FULL EDIT: includes (substantive line editing, and final proofreading for organization, flow, readability, story/content structure, character development, setting development, plot and storyline analysis, grammar & usage, spelling, word choice, flow, ease of understanding, sentence structure, consistent POV, subject-verb agreement, etc.).
LAYOUT & FORMATTING: including both print & eBooks.
CUSTOM ORIGINAL COVERS: (paperback, hardback, eBook, and audiobook)
I would love to have a look at your work, so I can see if I can be of any help. If I think I can assist you with your project, I will give you a flat fee quote, and we can go from there. 😊
