The Copy Edit is an extension of the Proofreading level of service, but also includes assessing the novel's strengths and weaknesses regarding syntax, format, clarity, story consistency, and its effectiveness on the intended audience. In addition, clients will receive an unbiased
and professional critique that can help improve the writer's skills. Many common mistakes in description, content, or flow detract from the story itself, but with further insight into effective writing and readers' expectations, you can become a better writer.

Line Editing is an extension of the Copy Edit level of service, inclusive of Proofreading. This service provides a line-by-line edit of your manuscript, analyzing sentence flow, repetition, relevance, storyline consistency, tone, and even areas where dialog or description may fall short or actually detract from the story's potential. This important service is available to writers who not only wish to improve their manuscript, but would also like a critical and helpful revision that will highlight thinner moments in the narrative that can be improved.

This service provides a thorough proofread, assessing the manuscript for grammar and spelling errors, typos, and other problems such as punctuation, subject/verb agreement, and pronoun/antecedent agreement. Spell check is very helpful in writing, but doesn't catch everything. Fixing these problems will bring your narrative beyond a simple spell check, helping to identify and eliminate inconsistencies. Having an experienced editor proofread your manuscript will provide you with a clean, polished document.
