We read a lot of books and have read a lot of books in our time, but we also like to make them! As well as being able to help you out with those extra commas and sorting out a loose thread of logic, the editorial team at Just Do The Work is ready to get their hands on your future cover, wrap up the layout and show them off to everyone. Your book realised from start to finish.
Just Do The Work helps you to:
Once you have finished drafting your work, it is a good idea to have it checked by a fresh eye before publication. You have rightly been concerned about content and style; now it is time for the proofreader to focus on the letters that make up the words and the correctness of the prose. Let the stream of consciousness take you away, and we’ll take care of catching typos, syntactical errors and grammatical missteps.
Copy and Line Editing
Structure, internal consistency, redundancies… when editing, you need to pay attention to many aspects of a draft. Moreover, it must respect the author’s voice and style. Editing does not mean “writing instead of”: it is about improving what is there and focusing on what is still missing to make a text effective and fluent.
Just Do The Work is an international team. Not only does this translate into at least one multicultural lunch per month, it also means that we speak and write in many different native languages. We can therefore help your text to do the same. Italian, English, Russian, Chinese… we’ll take care of the translation of your text the same way we cooked the turkey at the last Thanksgiving meal: perfectly.
We tell your story for you. You rely on a ghostwriter when you have something to say but can’t find the words to do it. At Just Do The Work we have plenty of words. You transfer the content of your book to us, explain what message you want to convey and what style you want to follow. On the basis of this information, one of our “ghosts” will draft the text for you, and you will be the author.
LAYOUT, ILLUSTRATIONS AND COVERS
In English they say that we should not judge a book by its cover, but let’s face it: appearance counts! We want to give your text the best possible outfit. From the cover to the page layout, from the illustrations to any accompanying photos, we will do everything in our power to ensure that your printed book or ebook has maximum readability and the right appeal. If you want, your book can also become a standard bearer for your brand identity and really communicate a personality: yours.
PUBBLICATION AND DISTRIBUTION
You want your hard-earned book to reach as many readers as possible. We want that too. Just Do The Work can handle the publication and distribution of your book in full. We can also prepare promotional campaigns and mockups, put together a press kit, and help you with communication via social media.
