Services for Writers

Clicking Keys offers multiple services for writers. 

Developmental editing is designed for those who want feedback on their manuscript’s content, organization, development, flow, and coherence as well as limited assistance with grammar, punctuation, and mechanics.

The primary focus of developmental editing is content, particularly on the story and character arcs, character development, pacing, and structure.


Copy editing assumes there are no major changes with content needed and intensely addresses grammar, punctuation, mechanics, consistency, and situational logic. (Ex: does the character sit down twice but not stand up in between?)

With a copy edit, the editor will often create a style sheet to help ensure consistency throughout the piece (capitalization, hyphenation, spelling, etc.)


Proofreading addresses grammar, punctuation, mechanics, and looks for typographical and formatting errors.

Proofreading is the least intensive edit we offer and is designed as a “last polish” before the piece goes to print.


Formatting styles your edited book for print or electronic distribution. Our formatter uses Adobe InDesign to provide high-quality, print-ready formatted text.

Formatting for both print books and e-books is available.


A Story or World Bible includes information about characters, the world in which the stories take place, the development of relationships over time, and much more. It allows the writer to quickly confirm information about a character such as height, food preferences, or choice of weapon. It also allows the writer to recall unique information about the world such as how the magic systems work, the names of spells, or the types of weapons used. Using a story or world bible allows the writer a simplified and organized way to assist with keeping details accurate and seeing the evolution of the series as it progresses.


Pre-made and custom covers and full wraps are also available. New designs are frequently added, so check back often!
