OUR SERVICES

Get Ready. Get Set. Get Published.

Imagine sitting in a cozy chair, your favorite beverage in hand (tea, coffee, soda, wine, straight vodka—you do you).

 

You’ve just opened a package that came in the mail, and you're so excited that you can hardly keep your hands from shaking.

 

Now it’s here, in your hands: your book. 

 

Whether you traditionally publish or self-publish, one of the most rewarding experiences in life is holding a copy of your book, straight off the press. 

That’s our job at Inkbot Editing: to get you into that chair, published book in hand, beaming with pride.

 

No matter what stage you’re at in the writing process, the expert team at Inkbot Editing has the skills, know-how, and tools to take you and your book from A to Z successfully and efficiently.

 

Our Lead Word Nerd, Molly McCowan, has years of experience in publishing and has helped hundreds of writers like you successfully publish work they can be proud of.

 

We take your hand and guide you through the writing and publishing process—from draft to launch party. 

We’re passionate about helping you share your story with the world.

    As a professional editor, I know good editing when I see it—and it goes beyond just applying 'the rules.' Molly exceeded my expectations in every way. She's

    first on my list for my next book!

    I had poured my heart, soul, and guts into my book, and Molly recognized that and reassured me. Gradually, my fear was replaced with trust, gratitude, and respect. Molly is an editor with a heart!
