Editing, Rewriting, Proofreading

We do copy-, substantive- and style edits to international standards. Proofreading is an important aspect of the publishing process.

Design, Layout

We design our publications to communicate to the reader with lucidity, and typeset them with precision.

We prepare publications for the press and help in the faithful transition of a publication from the monitor to the final printed pages.

Words We Value


I worked with Vijay and Sadhana of Blue Pencil on the book ‘The Renaissance Man – ‘Doc’ M V Sridhar’. They were very professional, knew what they are doing and delivered more than we expected – always on or before time. Throughout the process they gave valuable inputs, timely suggestions and were extremely generous with their time and expertise. What I liked most was that they ‘owned’ the project as much as we did, which made the process enjoyable, synergistic and fruitful. It made it possible for us to fine tune the book to the degree that we wanted. I am very impressed with their work and their work ethic and strongly recommend Blue Pencil for all pre-publication work.

“If this book is being published without unreasonable delay—the merit should be primarily granted to our supporting editors Sadhana and Vijay Ramchander from Hyderabad, India. In my long career, I have never worked with editors such as Sadhana and Vijay, who can associate professionalism and competence in editing with such a high degree of commitment and abnegation, who have the perspicacity, the interest in the subject, and the sound judgment to help not only in aspects of form and book organization, but also on matters of subject content and substance. For some parts of this book, they even deserve to be considered co-authors…”
