Strikethrough is an editing tool. It is a typographical presentation of words with a horizontal line through their center, resulting in t̶h̶i̶s̶ ̶e̶f̶f̶e̶c̶t̶.

It is used deliberately to imply a change of thought; to mark text that is mistaken or to be removed.



Choosing the right book editor can be a challenge. Every book requires a thorough edit before being submitted for publication. Hiring a professional book editor and proofreader may be the best investment you can make for your writing career. With that investment, you can turn your book publishing dream into a reality.

This is where Strike-Through comes in. Strike-Through is dedicated to offering professional book editing and proofreading services at the best rate.​

Get in touch by filling in the Contact Form, which includes your name, email, topic of enquiry, manuscript word count and your message to the editor. The editor will get back to you swiftly with a response to your queries.


Once you submit your information through the Contact Form, an open communication channel will be established between you and the editor. The editor will discuss all areas related to your manuscript edit with you, including your editing package choice, delivery time frame, and total cost of the edit.


Once you have talked things through with your editor, and agreed upon the details of the book edit, the editing process will take place. Just sit back, relax, and wait for your book edit completion date. You will be receiving constant updates from the editor regarding the progress of your book edit.


Once you receive your edited manuscript back from the editor, all that will be left is formatting and submitting your book for publication. You may choose to go through different mediums, such as Amazon Kindle, Apple iBooks, Smashwords or others, in either ebook.

Maria Al Ameen has had a passion for words for as long as she could remember. She was the type of student who would read instead of socialize during lunch breaks. It was rare to see the same book in her hands two days in a row. Simply put, she enjoyed getting lost in the words of remarkable authors.

Maria set out into the editing world with the confidence and professionalism a book editor needs to prove their worth. She slowly but surely built her portfolio, and with that, her reputation in the freelance editing world.

Maria earned a degree in Business & Finance at the renowned Heriot-Watt University, but the pull of words was stronger than the pull of numbers. She chose to deviate away from the finance field to pursue a career in freelance editing and writing, aiming to fulfill the dreams of authors looking for affordable book editors to publish their books and get quality leads.

She found a friend in every author she worked with, encouraging them to further their writing careers and aiding them in their authorship, even after completing her editing responsibilities.

As a manuscript editor, Maria enjoys all genres but holds a special love for young adult books due to their magical quality. When not editing or attending to life’s essentials, Maria can be found relaxing in nature with a book in hand.
