Here are some free options for editing PDFs if it's YOUR doc. If it's not your document you will need a couple of things: 1 - permission to edit before publishing, and 2 - a way to edit the pdf (app, software, etc.)
I used DocHub (which is a free Chrome app) to remove my chapter of Behind Her Brand: Direct Sales Edition, a book I co-authored, in order to create a PDF giveaway in one of my apps, but I made sure I had permission from the publisher to do that first.

Apps I use for signing documents using my iPhone:
