About Us

Delhi at Dark Cover
Book Edited

We are a husband and wife team (Rajan and Cora) and between us, we have edited over 200 books.

Most of these books are novels, some by debutante authors, and others by those who have a book or two to their name.

We have covered various genres, fiction, nonfiction, short stories, and poetry. The genres include historical, autobiographical, crime, thrillers, science fiction, philosophy, romance, urban fantasy, short stories, motivational, spiritual, poetry, financial management, and essays.

We have edited some serious novels, which require considerable background research. This could be pertaining to a particular era or pertaining to an event.

We have edited non-fiction books on financial management, marketing, essays, philosophy, creativity, LGBT, and war stories of the armed forces of the 1971 Bangladesh War, among others.

Rajan has edited the Damrong Pinkoon series of marketing books for Jaico: ‘The Market Know How’ ‘CEO Know How’, and ‘Dreams Come True’.

For Oxford University Press, we have edited a 900 plus page book on Financial Management.

We have freelanced for the following publishing houses:

Leadstart,

Wordit

Rupa,

and

In addition to the above, we also edit books directly for authors, where we do development editing giving detailed suggestions on plot, character, flow, style, language enhancement, besides the basic copy editing for grammar and style, punctuation etc.
