Make Sure Your Manuscript is Squeaky Clean
Finishing a book of any kind is a huge accomplishment. Congratulations! Now, the next step is to polish it up and make it shine. Whether you need someone to help you evaluate your first rough draft for plot holes or structural problems, help with fact-checking a bygone era or the plausibility of a fight sequence, or just a final polish of grammar and punctuation, I can help you get your book ready for publishing. If you are unsure which editing level benefit your manuscript most, or if you just want to make sure my style is the correct fit for you, send me the first five pages of your manuscript for a free sample edit.
Choose Your Editing Type
I specialize in two different kinds of edits. Choose the option that fits your manuscript’s needs. A style sheet is included in both editing types to help you maintain consistency and catch your most common mistakes on your next project. No matter which editing type you choose, I will make sure your whole manuscript complies with the Chicago Manual of Style, which is the style guide adopted by most publishers. However, if your subject matter requires MLA or APA formats, I have experience with those as well.
The biggest difference between a copy edit and a cosmetic proofread is that I will double check all facts and technical scenarios in your book for accuracy and suggest sentence rewrites as needed for the best readability. A copy edit also includes the cosmetic grammar and punctuation edits of a proofread.
This is a surface-level edit. I will comb through your manuscript line by line and correct all of those pesky, easy-to-miss grammar and punctuation mistakes that can make your manuscript look unprofessional or amateurish.
