EDITING AND PROOFREADING
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
|Copy-editing||Grammar / Spelling / Punctuation||$0.016 / word|
|Line-editing||Style / Flow / Consistency||$0.018 / word|
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.
