Hire the best book editors in New York


We'd all like to be able to sit down and craft the perfect book in one go, but unfortunately, that's not how writing works. To create a book that sells, you're going to need multiple drafts, plenty of coffee, and thorough feedback from a professional. And if you want only the best, you'll need help that only a New York editor can bring.


Reedsy is home to every type of editing service you'd need.

At Reedsy, we understand that you don't want to do business with just anybody. Editing a book is a significant investment, and the last thing you want to do is waste your money on someone claiming to be a professional who will turn in substandard work.
