Editing

Have you already written some or all of your life story, but are unsure about what to do next? It may be a good idea to have your work independently edited by someone who is not as close to the project as you are. Book of My Life can polish your prose, tidy up your typing and check for any errors or inconsistencies that you may not have noticed. We can also help to organise your writing so that it reads in a clear and appealing way. We can’t help you get your book published with a major publisher, but we can arrange for a small number of copies of your book to be printed and bound for personal use.

Typesetting, design and printing

Once you are happy with the content of your book, Book of My Life can typeset it, design an attractive cover and arrange for a short print run of paperbacks or hardbacks.

Proofreading

If your book has already been typeset, designed and edited, it may be useful to have the work independently proofread. Let our eagle eyes scan your words to make sure that errors are caught before going to press—not afterwards. 

Alison has, with an admirable sense of humour, professionally converted the written material into a readable final product.
