Winyan Press, LLC offers many services to its authors including editing, artwork and marketing which can also be utilized independently for non Winyan Press authors.
Winyan Press, LLC offers a full service editing department providing developmental editing, copy editing and proof reading. These services are free to Winyan Press authors but can also be purchased independently.
- Developmental Editors are involved with the entire development and organization of the book, the characters, the storyline and the pace in which the story is told. They make suggestions on how a chapter is presented, the overall content, the flow of the story and the arrangement of text. When they are completed then the book should be ready for the copy editor.
- Copy Editors are involved with reviewing text, correcting spelling and grammar, and punctuation. They will read the entire manuscript, checking for consistency, redundancy, flow, transition and the proper use of words. They will ensure that the proper tense is used throughout the manuscript and provide suggestions for the smooth transition from one thought to the next.
- Proofreaders are involved with reading the final copy of the manuscript and checking for any missed grammatical errors, misspelled words and consistency issues.
If you would like information about any of our editing services please contact us and we will go over our costs based on the project.

Winyan Press, LLC utilizes a targeted marketing strategy that is aimed at exposing the work of their authors to specific audiences. We focus our resources on book events and conventions that are 1) close enough for authors to travel to and 2) are genre specific.
These services are provided free to Winyan Press authors although authors are expected to arrange for their own travel.
All authors signed to Winyan Press, LLC will receive the following: time spent with a developmental editor, copy editing for their manuscript, original cover art, advertising on our website and other social media outlets and a book specific marketing strategy to best utilize resources.
If an author requires more than what Winyan Press provides such as additional hours with the developmental editor or further artwork for their story (character cards, drawings within the book, social media cover art, etc.) they will be required to purchase these services independently. These services will be offered through our company at a discounted rate.
Authors will be expected to participate in a targeted marketing strategy that will be aimed at exposing their work to specific audiences. Winyan Press will cover the registration fees for various book conventions and use their contacts to set up local book signings, meet-and-greets and promotional giveaways. Travel for appearances will be at the author’s expense.
