A full line and copy edit focuses on the readability and consistency of your prose. Full line and copy editing is required after our manuscript has undergone a few rounds of self-edits and you are happy with your story and structure .
This type of editing is especially important to artfully correct the spelling, grammar, syntax, punctuation, hyphenation, and capitalization of your prose.
Structural and substantive editing
Developmental editing is an inspection of all elements of writing starting from sentence phrasing, pacing, plot to overall structure and style. It is critical for authors struggling with plot formation or re-structuring and removing plot holes.
If your manuscript has gone through a round or two of self-edits, you are ready for a thorough and in-depth edit of your entire manuscript.
Prepublication quality check
A proofread is the final quality check needed to look for any problems that may have slipped through previous rounds of editing and formatting.
Proofreading is done after the manuscript is fully edited at the story and sentence level.
This step is especially important for Indie authors who plan to go the self-publishing route after multiple rounds of self-edits to the manuscript.
Providing a reader’s perspective
Beta reading is important for objective feedback on your story. As an avid reader of multiple genres, and as a member of the BIPOC community, I can provide you with a perspective alternate to the one from an editor.
Beta and sensitivity reading is normally done before professional edits to incorporate the feedback received from beta/sensitivity reads into the manuscript. It specifically provides a view of what readers think of your book in its current state.
