Developmental editing is a heavy edit that focuses solely on your content. Big picture issues impacting the strength and viability of the manuscript are identified and corrected. These include pace, conflict, tension, flow, character development, time jumps, narrative arcs, and perspective. We take the time to understand your vision, so your book is not restructured so heavily that it no longer resembles your original intent. Our unique approach also ensures that you're learning and growing as a writer as we go through revisions.  

INVESTMENT:

$.01 /Per Word 

Line editing identifies and corrects issues related to repetition, consistency, clarity, pacing, flow, overused words, and other line level errors. This is where it's important to hire an editor who understands your unique voice. The goal here isn't to make you sound a certain way. It is to preserve your voice while making sure your message is easy for readers to understand. Line editing analyzes your content line by line, ensuring the final product flows well while remaining faithful to your vision. 

INVESTMENT:

$.008 / Per Word

Copy editing is a critical editing service that every manuscript should go through. This edit corrects issues related to spelling, grammar, usage, punctuation, formatting, and other word level errors. It focuses solely on the technical aspects of your writing. We specialize in copy editing works from Black authors because we understand the use of slang, cliches, allegories, and other specific preferences in the words we select that other editors would dismiss as errors. 

INVESTMENT:

$.006 /Per Word 

This is the final review before your book is published and will happen when all editing and formatting services are completed. It addresses minor, lingering errors, to ensure you present a final manuscript that is as close to error-free as possible. 

INVESTMENT:

$.004 / Per Word
