Hey there! If you’re looking for more information about my editing services, you’re in the right place.
I provide a variety of services to authors, writers, and companies, including developmental editing, copyediting, fact-checking, proofreading, and more.
Here is a rundown of all the services I offer:
Developmental Edit (Fiction)/Fact Check (Nonfiction)
A developmental edit (also known as a line edit) takes place earlier in the writing process, and refers to providing comments toward the development and flow of the story, including discussing major themes, inconsistencies, character development, plot structure, tone, etc. It does not involve correcting grammar, punctuation, spelling, syntax, etc.
In nonfiction, it also involves the verification of your facts and an examination into your sources.
This type of editing is highly subjective, and will be performed via comments on the side of the manuscript, rather than me directly changing the content. This allows you and I to work together to create the book in your vision, not mine. Developmental editing is a collaborative effort that should involve extensive communication between us both.
If you would like me to make changes directly into your manuscript, this will be referred to as a “rewrite” and results in additional charge.
A copyedit takes place later in the writing process, and refers to correcting grammar, punctuation, spelling, syntax, etc. It does not involve the plot or content of the manuscript.
A proofread is the latest stage of editing, when your manuscript is almost ready for publication. It’s a cheap, simple once-over of your work for grammar, spelling, and mechanics.
I am able to complete any or all of these with your manuscript. If you’re ready to get started, fill out the form below to ask for a quote:
