We know you’re reviewing websites, looking at pricing and trying to decide on the right editor for your project. And you should be doing that. Our job is to lay it out for you, plain and simple, so you can make an informed and easy decision.

Terms used in the editing and proofreading industry vary, so we have simplified ours into two all-encompassing services. Here is everything you need to know:

Line Editing (aka: Developmental Editing)

Line editing is the big picture edit. We’re not digging into the nuts and bolts, we’re tearing apart the factory and putting it back together again, better than before.

With your intended audience in mind, we address:

  • the vision of your novel

  • the chapter by chapter structure of your novel

  • the characterization in your novel

  • plot and scene by scene pacing

  • sloppy wording and paragraphs

  • overused words and phrases

Copyediting (and Proofreading)

The copyedit is the final stage before publishing, and ensures your manuscript is in accordance to the rules found in the Chicago Manual of Style. It’s the polish that your novel needs to separate itself from the competition.

Our copyediter will ensure:

  • proper grammar, punctuation and spelling

  • consistency throughout your manuscript

  • proper tenses (past/present/future) throughout your manuscript

  • correct spacing, font and formatting to get your manuscript ready for publication

Please Note:

  • The Author's Hand's work is GUARANTEED. Your satisfaction or your money back.

  • If the manuscript requires heavy correction, the $/word may require a special fee.
