We Perform Copywriting, Editing, and Typesetting Services

Power of Words has been performing book editing, typesetting, copywriting and other support services for entrepreneurs and authors for the past ten years.

Business clients return for a well-priced and high-quality writing service – complete with integration of marketing principles.

Editing Services

Copy Editing

Copy editing or line editing is our usual book editing option. It means thoroughly checking your work for spelling, grammar, and punctuation mistakes, as well as consistency of voice. We highlight any tautology or word repetition. It assumes your basic book structure and headings are good.

All quotes include a check of changes that the client has approved.

Developmental Editing

(also called Substantive Editing)

Because self-publishers don’t have the benefit of a developmental editor, Power of Words offer this service. It is simply the best way to get your book structured correctly and allows for suggestions on fuller content, referencing, front matter, and so on. It includes editing suggestions to improve meaning and understanding, including proof of concepts. 

We help the text flow from one chapter to another. After reviewing these suggestions, we usually do the copy editing level on the second pass.


Proofreading helps with picking up typos on the last round of reviews, ideally after layout.

Self-Help/How To Book Writer?

Try out a session of remote writer coaching — it will be faster than struggling alone.

Consider a writing coaching package to suit your support needs and budget… from $1500 to $2400 for serious writers writing their first book.

Jennifer Lancaster also includes developmental editing in these packages, saving you money. Australia wide.

Other Author Services

  • Book description writing — usually with five hot selling points
  • Professional Bio (About You)
  • Publishing mentoring – from ISBNs to ebooks, library suppliers, ideal print platform, and artwork guides

With any mentoring, I will support you with advice on your main decisions and what to do next.

Also see book marketing tips in our client guide:  ‘The Niche Marketing & Book Guide’, free with paid services over $200.

All Kinds of Copywriting

Website copywriting, lead magnets, and press release writing is all about getting results for your company. 

Why not offer your audience a written guide, white paper or tools list, all researched, written, and beautifully formatted, ready to share on your website to capture email leads. From 2 to 10 pages is ideal.

If you’re setting up an online lead generation system, Jennifer can provide the copywriting and website advice to reach your goals. 

Client Care Promise

Power of Words upholds the promise to care for client outcomes and their emotional health. We do not promote fantasies, but we do outline key ways that a book can help a person’s career or business and personal brand. 

Our writing services help you attract and convert more prospects. Our editing services ensure your documents or books are flowing well, free of flaws, and ultimately, being read.
