Self-publishing is a crazy process at best. You've written your book, and all you want to do is see it in print, but that's not as easy as it sounds. The big self-publishing companies want you to buy a publishing package that contains everything, but you're pretty sure you don't need everything. You want to figure out what you really want, and just get those things. I can help.

At Bear Press Editorial Services my fellow editors and I help independent authors determine what's necessary and what's not. We provide a variety of services, so you can get what you need without being overloaded with a lot of features you don't want. My primary services are:

Critiquing: When you've written most, or all, of a draft of your book, and you need a fresh perspective. I read your book, taking notes, then I write a critique essay showing you ways to make your work stronger.

Editing--When your text needs some revision and polishing, but not a total rewrite.

Critique & edit--This is when you hire me to be your writing coach. I set up a process designed to keep you on track through the completion of your book.

Ghostwriting--When you've made notes, and possibly written a little, I do the rest of the writing for you.

Rewriting--When you've written most of your book, but it's a total mess, I help you bring order out of chaos.

Fact-checking--If you're dealing with real people, places, and events, you are responsible for getting your facts straight. We can help by spotting inconsistencies, errors, and things that need more explanation.

Indexing--Nonfiction books often need indexes. We can tell you how those work, and do them for a reasonable price.

I am not a publisher, but I am in constant contact with many self-published authors. I listen to them, just as I will listen to you. As a conduit in that grapevine, I can advise you on what to look for in self-publishing programs.

Books are one specialty, but we have others. If you need writing for ads, promotional materials, articles, speeches, business matters, or almost anything else, we can help you.

If you need any of these services, please call me at

or email me through this ad. Ask for Pete.
