Proof-Reading

Final read-through of the corrected manuscript before it goes to press. This is to catch last minute typos and mistakes after massive editing has happened. This service means I read the final version of the final galley before it goes to print and flag any overlooked errors.

No major editing is performed.



Copy-Editing

This service checks for typos, grammar, proper use of words, proper syntax, random tense changes, and so on. This service does NOT check plot points, character development, research, and so on. This service does not polish the manuscript.



Line Editing
This service checks for typos, grammar, proper syntax, tenses changes, and will rework sentences in the author's voice and style. Will polish manuscript to market standard. Recommended for manuscripts ready to publish.


Book Report
This service includes a general report about the book's strengths and weaknesses.
The first draft of the manuscript will be read and suggestions will be flagged in the manuscript and highlighted in a written report.

Focus on plot, character, dialogue, pace, setting, point-of-view, narrative structure, use of tone, language, and more.
