Book Editing Services
- Line by Line Editing-Looks at each sentence individually and checks grammar, clarity, word choice, sentence flow, and paragraph structure. This type of editing looks at the trees in the forest, and ensures that each one is healthy.
- Structural Editing-Also called developmental or substantive editing, this form of editing looks at the forest. This type of editing involves looking at the manuscript as a whole for issues in flow, clarity, content, plot development, scene building, and character development. It is time consuming and expensive, but is the best way to ensure that your novel works as a cohesive unit.
- Proofreading-Checks for grammar mistakes and issues like missing and incorrect words. This does not address issues in content and is the cheapest form of editing.
- Rates-I will give you a quote that includes a sample edit of the first 500 words for manuscripts, I am also willing to discuss providing feedback for short stories.
