What we can do for you
There are four phases in the editing process, and following that order is critical to ensure your manuscript accurately relays your vision to your target audience.
Phase one is developmental editing. This is a big picture edit that focuses on the plot, structure, characterization, pace, viewpoint narrative style, and tense of the manuscript.
Phase two is the line edit. This is a stylistic, sentence-level edit that focuses on sense and flow. To do so, it examines authenticity, character traits, narration, engagement, dialogue, pace and flow, tenses, and exposition.
Phase three is the copy edit. This is a sentence-level edit that concentrates on correcting the technical aspects of the manuscript, including: chapter sequencing, dialogue tagging, letter, word, line, and paragraph spacing, logic of timeline, environment, and character traits, spelling grammar, syntax, punctuation, hyphenation, and capitalization. It also ensures the manuscript is in standard document format.
The final phase is proofreading. This is an integral step that ensures your manuscript is as close to error free as possible. This service provides a detailed language check and corrects layout issues. It is the last check your manuscript will receive before publication.
We also offer several other services, including Manuscript evaluations, synopsis editing, sensitivity reading, consulting, and editorial synopsis writing.
Our services can be used individually or combined to create unique packages to better meet your needs.
