You worked hard to compose the first draft and you’re ready to take it to the next level. Together we’ll go beyond finding spelling errors, locating extra spaces between words, misaligned paragraphs, and other elements that create an inconsistent look and feel to the project. We will:

  • Verify storyline, voice, and message consistency
  • Assist the storyline to evolve (if necessary)
  • Suggest edits to the content

Developmental Editing

Ensure the characters maintain continuity (maintain personality, appearance, etcetera) and have a purpose.

Focus on storyline structure to make sure the foundation is well established. This involves point of view, plot, tense, written voice, timelines, locations, and etcetera. You’ll receive suggestions to deepen the storyline, expand on areas needing more explanation, and red-lined elements that dangle and do not carry its weight.

Each writer’s process is unique. The Developmental Editing package is custom fit to the author’s specific situation. It will include: one reading of the manuscript looking for story cohesion, and a 60-minute conversation post-edits to discuss editor notes and author questions.

Copyediting

It’s time to revise the manuscript to improve its readability. The focus is on sentence structure, grammatical and factual errors, clarity of the plot, voice consistency, and stylized use of punctuation and tone.

Copyediting is the task of correcting a manuscript while maintaining the author’s intention and overall message.

Each writer’s timeline is unique. Your Copyediting package will be custom to fit your specific situation. It will include: one reading of the manuscript, and a 60-minute conversation post-edits to discuss editor notes and author questions.

Her meticulous attention to detail and suggestions helped me to polish the manuscript into its final version. A highly emotional book for me to write, Cindy encouraged me to dig deeper and to find the strength to share my truth in each chapter.
