BookShelfMuse Services

We offer Proofreading, Editing and Stylistic Editing services to Indie writers and established authors who are looking to polish their works.  We truly believe in the power of books. More specifically, the power of the word. Being avid readers, book reviewers and bloggers, we have celebrated the impact a good read has in the lives of those who grace its pages. A book can truly change a life, perspective and open the mind to new worlds. Our goal is to play a role in the monumental journey an author embarks upon. We believe in the art of expression and communication and we know that sometimes an author simply needs a fresh set of eyes, a caring critique and a literary/editorial background to help move the process along.

Why trust us?

Having pooled specific talents, credentials and our shared passion for reading and supporting authors in making their dreams come true, we have made it our mission to stand out from the rest. Jennifer has used her background experience in human resources and her role as a business entrepreneur for over twenty years to spearhead our blogging venture, book review initiative and our diverse group of women between the ages of 30-65 of various backgrounds as part of a flourishing book club featuring specific reads. (In fact, our focus group can offer a market feedback on your book that is unique to our service, if you so desire). Sabrina’s years of editorial, journalistic and writing experience provides an unexampled sharp, critical eye. With a Master’s Degree in English Literature, published articles and Chief Editor of a magazine, she is well versed in the editing and publishing world. Our services include two readings to ensure the optimum result, guaranteeing complete satisfaction.

We promise to make your dreams, our dreams.
