What WordsRU Young Adult fiction Book Editing
Service Can Do for You

Let's face it - this is a tough audience! Young adults can spot an inauthentic voice or a story that doesn't "get" their unique perspective from the first few pages. Your WordsRU editor will help you put your story across in the right language and rhythm to reach a young audience, and provide suggestions for maintaining dramatic tension in a realistic and age-appropriate manner.

WordsRU's professional editors can help make the most of your writing. To that end, we will:

  • Edit your manuscript for grammatical, spelling, punctuation, tense, and typographical errors
  • Review word choice and sentence structure to ensure that your language flows logically, using appropriate tone and style, to achieve a presentation that is clear, concise, and consistent
  • Take great care to preserve your voice and meaning
  • Provide comments to bring your attention to any issues with storyline, character, or theme
  • Address any particular areas of concern that you may have.

Upon completion of the editing, your editor will return:

  • A marked copy, showing all corrections and comments*
  • A revised copy, with corrections accepted and comments removed*
  • A document with additional comments, recommendations, and suggestions that supplement the comments in the manuscript, if such exposition is necessary.

*Because PDFs are only a depiction of text that cannot be altered, the editor will return only one copy, with marks that show where and what changes are required. If you have us edit a PDF, you will have to go back to the original file and insert the changes yourself.

We are aware that you will likely require assistance after you have reviewed the edited work, and WordsRU will not close the door on your manuscript until you indicate that you are ready for us to do so. Once the edit is returned to you, your editor will:

  • Answer your questions
  • Explain any comments and recommendations provided in the edited document
  • Review specific, short passages of text that you have revised or rewritten per the comments.

Finally, every editing project is overseen from start to finish by the chief editor, who will monitor the progress of your project and provide assistance to you if necessary. While communication with your editor occurs through our secure messaging system, your chief editor is available to you if you need to speak to someone "live."
