Content Editing, Developmental Editing, Proofreading 

Light Editing


This is the very basic form of editing. When you hire us to do a light edit, you are letting us know that the manuscript is ready for production and all you want is a browse-through of the manuscript for spelling, grammar and punctuation errors, capitalization, numbers, use of hyphens, table of contents (if you have one), and any list of items. 

Medium Editing


A medium edit, also called a copy edit, will include light editing in addition to content & style, formatting, and gender neutrality. For content & style, we will check your word usage, logic, and clarity. We will also ensure that the overall text speaks to your readers the way that you intend it to. 

Heavy Editing


A heavy edit is the most comprehensive form of editing. It gives your manuscript substantive attention and looks out for the following, in addition to light and medium editing: organization, sentence style, repetitions, overuse of specific words, vague generalizations, wordiness, and focus. 

Submit the first 10-20 pages of your manuscript by copying and pasting the text into the body of your email.
We will review your pages and provide a sample-edit of your manuscript if we are interested.
We'll return the sample-edit to you. If you love our work, we'll shake on it and begin working together.
Our Process
Finding the perfect partner for your book can be challenging. You've worked day and night to make your dream a reality. Now the thought of having a third-party comb through it unnerves you. Will they change the story and make it their own? What about my voice, will it still be mine? These are some genuine concerns that go through the minds of authors when seeking an editor. I hope that after reading through the offerings below you'll be one step closer to feeling comfortable deciding the best way to take your manuscript from draft to published masterpiece. As your editor, I will carefully read your manuscript, checking it for correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation. I will also check for inconsistencies and inaccuracies, and will even rewrite sentences that don't make much sense. However, by the time I'm done, it will STILL be your story, your voice, just BETTER!
