Make your book the best it can be

with a choice of professional editing services to meet your goals and your budget

Being independent doesn’t mean you have to go it alone.

Indie and self-publishing authors should never have to choose between breaking the bank or releasing their book without the help of a professional book editor. But knowing exactly what type of editing you need – and figuring out what it will cost you – can be confusing.

That’s where Reckless Abandon comes in.

We take the guesswork out of hiring a book editor! With three distinct service options and no-fuss pricing based on word count, you can choose exactly what fits your needs and your budget. Whether you plan to self-publish, or want to polish your manuscript before sending it to prospective publishers or agents, our editing services are a competitively priced way to make sure your book is ready to go.

From big picture feedback to the nitty gritty, we've got you covered.
