Manuscript Line and Copy Editing
I offer professional line and copy editing services for fiction and nonfiction books. In addition to fixing errors in spelling, grammar, and punctuation, I check for consistency and logic, ensure that all names and places are spelled correctly, adjust sentence and paragraph structure, make sure dates are accurate, and eliminate redundant words. I also make sure that each sentence is straightforward, and that your tone, vocabulary, and style are accurate. Each manuscript goes through two rounds of editing. The first round is a full manuscript line or copy edit. The second pass of editing is done after you've revised your manuscript based on my comments and suggestions from the first edit.
I check for errors in spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, verb-tense consistency, pronouns, spacing, and formatting. I make sure that your text, illustrations, captions, and graphs are consistent, and I will alert you to any legal issues I come across.
Children's Book Editing and Proofreading
Children's picture books are engaging, entertaining, and fun to read, but they must be age-appropriate and error free. They require as thorough a copy edit as any other novel. I will perform a line-by-line edit of your manuscript, and if necessary, I will provide valuable feedback that will help strengthen your story.
I offer full editing services on the following: Manuscripts (Nonfiction and Fiction), Stories, Magazine and Newspaper Articles, Press Releases, Newsletters, Sales Letters, Brochures and Fliers, Business Plans, Website Content, Academic Essays, Resumes, Articles
