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.

We are also the type of people whom you wouldn't dislike sitting beside on a plane. We are aromatically pleasant and adept conversationalists who know when to be quiet and let you sleep.
