We support authors in their self-publishing journey, from the first draft to the finished product, with coaching, editing, formatting, and marketing services.

We specialize in the following genres: fantasy, romance (all varieties, including paranormal), young adult (fantasy, romance, and dystopian), and thrillers.

Whatever your level of writing, we'll help you polish your novel to the best it can be. With Luna Imprints Author Services (LIAS), you can be sure to get professional services, one-on-one coaching, and a guiding hand along the journey that cares as much about your writing as you do.

What authors say about us

“Exceeded my expectations”

“I had been unhappy with my initial editor and was a bit wary going forward. But Alexa’s skills as an editor, with both developmental and copy editing, exceeded my expectations. She is thorough and meticulous, but also warm and encouraging, and generous with advice outside of the editing purview. I was so pleased with the result that I hired Alexa to edit my next two books in the series and recommended her to two fellow authors who subsequently hired her as well. I should add that Luna Imprints stays in line with standard rates for editing and proofreading, but provides (in my opinion) superior services, and offers great little perks such as online Zoom meetings to follow up with any questions or clarifications. I greatly appreciate the fact that Alexa is respectful of me as an author, always acknowledging that it is not her book, it is mine, and changes are ultimately up to me. This is not only reassuring, but it also makes it easier to accept the changes and recommendations that I need to make in order to make the book shine, even though I don’t always want to do so. All these facets add up to my recommendation of Alexa Padou as an outstanding editor!”

Judith Lepore

Author of the The Magic of Miraven epic fantasy series

“Thoroughness and attention to detail”

“Luna Imprints Author Services has built a great reputation with me by protecting my reputation with my readers. Alexa not only catches errors, omissions, redundancies, and duplications in the book she is currently proofreading, but she also crosschecked the latest one against its prequel and made sure that consistency was maintained across the series. In a side discussion we were having about scheduling, she made it clear that she places quality at the top of her priority queue. Me too. That’s why Alexa is the proofreader for the Alcubierre Metric Connection novels.”

Frank Merceret

Author of the Alcubierre Metric Connection hard sci-fi series

“A rare gem in the editing world”

“Alexa is a rare gem in the editing world. Trusting her with my YA fantasy novel felt like a welcomed hug throughout the process, which then turned into an incredibly encouraging push toward the publishing journey. Nearly one hundred thousand words were combed through with Alexa’s obvious talent and care. From the first meeting, she understood the meaning behind this book, and with remarkable integrity, carried that in her work. I am beyond grateful, and cannot wait for her to care for my future projects like a mother for a child, a surgeon for a heart, or a talented editor for a literary dream.”

Barbara Kvelstein

Author of Agnes and the Locket of Secrets, a YA fantasy novel
