Our Editing Services

Our Editing Services

  • Copy Editing - When your manuscript feels ready for the next step, a professional copy edit can give you the polish you’re looking for. Whatever level you require, a copy edit ensures correctness, clarity, and consistency. This includes editing for grammar, spelling, punctuation and usage, checking for consistency and continuity of mechanics and facts (e.g. character names, relationships, etc.)
  • Stylistic Editing (also known as Line Editing) - A copy edit with more. Focuses on language and diction (eliminating jargon, repetition), structure of sentences and paragraphs, establishing consistency of tone, mood and style; guides rhythm, coherence and flow. A stylistic edit can really take your manuscript to the next level.
  • Proofreading - The final, final stage before you’re ready to offer your manuscript for publishing; requires the keenest of eyes to catch the tiniest of errors.
  • Other services - Complete Manuscript Assessment, Coaching (submit works in progress for critical analysis and assessment), Ghost Writing CONTACT FOR MORE DETAIL

Fees are dependent on the level and style of edit. For edits, we require a 10-page manuscript submission for which we’ll provide a sample edit in return and go from there. Some additional information will also help us prepare a quote, so we ask that you complete the submission form below.
