DEVELOPMENTAL
EDITING

Editing PLUS thorough, in-depth review of your entire manuscript.

LINE EDITING

Line by line analysis, taking copy editing to the next level.  Includes light to moderate rewriting ONLY. Improving sentence structure and dialogue, dialog tags, style, clarity, smoothing out transitions and flow. Maintaining the author's voice is key.

COPY EDITING

Fine tuning the manuscript (the "copy").  Includes punctuation, usage, grammar and spelling.  Eliminating errors and inconsistencies, ensuring that the language supports the writer’s intent and also creating the most readable version of their story.

PROOFREADING

The last step in the process!  Careful examination of the manuscript. Correcting typographical and formatting issues (fonts, page numbering, spacing, etc.). Double checking errors (punctuation, usage, grammar and spelling). Presenting what the finished pages of your book will look like.
