Genres We Edit

Line/Copy Editing

Correcting spelling, grammar, and punctuation issues. Also correcting word choice issues, sentence structure, repetitive words, overused adjectives/adverbs, and more!

We work in Word and use track changes. For authors not familiar with track changes, we offer brief (free) tutorials on this process. You will get your manuscript back with “redlined” corrections in the body of the document, sometimes with comments in the margins. It will be up to the author to implement the suggested changes.

Current rates start at .02 per word

content/ Developmental editing

Focuses on plot, characters, and structure. Pinpointing underdeveloped characters, pacing issues, plot holes, and more! Focuses on the “big picture,” including genre-appropriate structure, proper opening and endings, and strength of conflict and resolution.

Authors who choose this type of editing alone or in addition to line editing will receive a separate document called an Editing Memo, which contains bullet points of suggested changes recommended by the editors to strengthen the novel in the above areas.

Current rates start at .04 per word

proofreading

A lighter version of line editing. Typically chosen by authors who’ve already had line editing and content editing done. Polishes the manuscript to catch minor missed typos, mistakes, and errors (missing commas, misspelled words, etc.)
