We provide all forms of editing, to match wherever you are with your book project and to help you create a publishable book that fulfills your vision.
- Substantive or Structural Editing – Clarifying and/or reorganizing a manuscript for content and structure.
- Stylistic Editing – Clarifying meaning, eliminating jargon, smoothing language, and other non-mechanical line-by-line editing.
- Copy Editing – Editing for grammar, spelling, punctuation, and other mechanics of style; checking for consistency of mechanics and internal consistency of facts.
- Proofreading – Checking the final, edited proof manuscript for mechanics of style, pagination errors, table of contents, bibliography, index, etc.
In addition to these basic editing services, we help our authors with important considerations, such as: audience, purpose, organization, tone, graphics, research style, theme development, and character development (if it is a work of fiction).
Except for proofreading, there is no up-front charge for any of the editing services described above. Our editing services are provided as part of our Value-added Publisher Services.
