Proofreading/Copy Edit is the last step before you hit publish. Your manuscript has already been edited, but you want one more set of eyes to go over it. This process focuses on punctuation, spelling, grammar, repetitiveness, and wrong or missing words.
Plot errors, continuity, structure, and flow will not be pointed out at this stage. This is a simple one-time read through.
Cost is $0.003 per word.
Full Edit is a fully detailed and comprehensive look at your manuscript. It includes the Copy Edit stage as well as an overall look at the structure of your story, character development, flow, pacing, continuity, minor fact checking, and proper tenses. I use the track changes feature in Microsoft Word and reference The Chicago Manual of Style and the Merriam-Webster dictionary. I will read your manuscript multiple times if necessary at no additional cost. As an added bonus, I will also polish up your book’s blurb for free.
