The company I choose to help me self publish had a copyediting service which was really over priced and way outside my affordability. Standoutbooks provided an affordable and professional service that more than meet my needs. My editor was Paige Duke and she was absolutely brilliant, she made thousands of revisions, double checked all references including bible references and made other really good changes and suggestions.

Paige delivered on time and really went the extra mile with the service she provided, I will definitely use Paige and Stand Out Books services in the future.
