Sentence level work on your manuscript, looking at grammar, adherence to style, redundant and overused words, and flow.
This is what most people mean when they think of ‘editing.’
Content and Line Editing
In-depth structural work mixed with sentence level editing (similar to developmental editing). This looks at the big picture and makes sure your story flows well and stays on track to your desired conclusion.
This is a final set of eyes before formatting. It looks purely at typos and grammar issues for continuity and adherence to style. This will only be undertaken on a previously edited manuscript.
Choose from either a full critique or up to 10,000 words from your manuscript. The purpose of an evaluation is not to ‘edit’ for publication, but to give you techniques to apply to your whole document in regards to show don’t tell, relationship development, characterization, plot and story structure, and POV issues among others.
Frequently asked questions
A sample is a helpful way to decide whether we’re a good fit, as well as giving me insight into the type of work your manuscript might require. I will edit a complimentary sample of up to 1000 words before we decide to work together.
I do not provide samples for proofreading.
My average turnaround for a copyedit on a 100,000 word document is around fourteen business days. However, this can vary depending on the type of edit needed. The sample I complete will allow me to give a more accurate timescale for your work.
At this time, I only work with self-publishing authors.
I will only proofread manuscripts that have previously been edited by a professional editor. If you haven’t engaged an editor, I would be happy to offer you a sample for a copyedit or content edit to see if we are a good fit.
