We are a small but fierce team of publishing house veterans who specialize in tightening, trimming, and tweaking while maintaining author voice. We proofread and copy edit with an eye for word economy and clarity while sussing out and expanding the unique voice that lies within each writer. 

From developmental editing to page layout and cover design, the experienced Word Mule staff offers everything your book needs on its path toward publication.

A note on our character: We are the type of people eager to help stranded motorists change a flat tire, even though we don't know what we're doing down there and are at great risk of being flattened under the weight of your sedan or your coupe or your van.
