|| Peacock Editorial Service was inaugurated in 1982 to provide fast, efficient, professional editorial services at a reasonable rate to national and local religious publishers and to individual ministers and authors.
Over the years it has been expanded to offer the same quality services to national trade publishers and to regional, university, and small presses. In this capacity, it has helped publish hundreds of books, plus numerous articles and other related materials.
Although it has assisted in the production of a wide variety of books (novels, mysteries, short stories, food and cooking, humor, women's, children's, motivation, inspiration, quotations, devotional, folklore, calendars, etc.), it specializes in nonfiction works of a rather serious nature including theology and religion, travel, history, Southern and Southwestern civilization and culture, Civil War, biography and autobiography,etc.
Its primary services include:
| "The copyeditor is the guardian of precision, the protector of the facts, a professional perfectionist dedicated to the idea that you can believe what you read."|
--From Manuscript to Book, an instructional manual for writers and authors
|"To Jimmy Peacock, the best copyeditor in the world."|
--Author inscription in Black Knights, nonfiction account of the Tuskegee Airmen
|"To Jimmy Peacock, whose editing skills are second only to Dr. Freeman's."|
--Author inscription in biography of Douglas Southall Freeman, Pulitzer Prize-winning editor and biographer
|"To Jimmy Peacock, without doubt the world's greatest editor!"|
--Author's personal note in The Influence of Air Power upon History
|"Thanks for doing such an excellent job on this project. Your copyediting skills are phenomenal. . . . I was intrigued by your ability to catch and correct an assortment of problems. . . . Again, thanks for attending to the details of the manuscript and for striving for excellence in your work. I admire your ability."|
