Editing Services


You've worked hard on your novel. Don't let reviewers slam it, because you didn't hire an editor. While you may think your novel is perfect (it will be when I am done), you are too close to the story to find plot holes, character development, grammar, and spelling mistakes. 

I will provide honest and constructive feedback to make your novel shine. 

Copy Editing

The purpose of a copy edit is to ensure that the author’s work is easy to read and uses proper spelling and grammar. The copy edit will find and fix errors of well-known facts, brings any possible legal issues to the author and/or publisher’s attention, and ensures that the flow is consistent and readable.

Content Editing

This is a service that allows the editor to go over your manuscript with a razor-sharp eye. It catches issues with style, speech, and character behavior. Content editing focuses on the plot, theme, structure, character development, and the story line. It includes recommendations and rewrites that strengthen the story as a whole. Your content editor will ensure that the language fits your intended audience, fix weak word choices, and gets rid of unnecessary and redundant wordiness.
