How many editors are on your team?
Copy Editing tackles grammar, punctuation, and correcting mechanical errors like typos. This is needed at any level of editing so that readers are not put off by rudimentary mishaps.
Line Editing focuses on sentence structure and word choices. This style of editing accesses if your message is being accurately relayed, the style and the flow of the work overall.
Developmental Editing addresses character development, plot development, and storyline. It fleshes out weaker areas of the manuscript, makes sure there aren’t unnecessary sections included, and that the story has a climax. Overall, it improves “big picture” story elements. All novels need developmental editing.
Your genre and word count can determine which edit is best for you and this will be determined in your 1-on-1 call.
How do I know what kind of edit I need?
The process time frame is dependent on word count and which editing services are purchased. Most edits generally take 3-4 weeks, however, this time can be impacted by the writing level of the author and the word count of the manuscript.
How long does the editing process take?
We provide line, copy, and developmental editing. For smaller works we provide a “simple edit”.
It is vital as an author that you have multiple eyes on your work. No matter how good your story is, your message can be misconstrued or not fully read because your grammatical errors are plentiful and your audience is turned off. We are here to keep that from happening and will provide you with a more polished manuscript than what you started with.
