What I Offer
You are happy with the overall plot of your story-its structure, character development, etc. Now it’s time to focus on its readability. This sentence-level edit examines your prose and really get into the nitty-gritty of your writing.
Copyediting addresses flaws on a technical level. As your copy editor, I will focus on spelling, punctuation, grammar, syntax, semantics, consistency, numerals, fonts, and capitalization, as well as the continuity of plot, setting, and character traits.
Your story has been through developmental edits and your writing has been through editing at a sentence level. A proofread is a final surface check that looks out for problems that have slipped through previous rounds of editing. It is the last check before you hit publish and go live to your readers.
Details can be difficult to keep track of when you are writing a series. Let me do the hard work for you by creating an easy to read and customized bible for you. From lengthy character bios to detailed timelines, I will know your series inside and out by the time I am done. Learn more.
Working on your manuscript and need some facts checked? Save your time and focus on your writing by letting me do the grunt work. Have a topic you need some more information on? I will do the research for you. Rate: $20/hour
