Editing and Publishing Services

Editing Services

This involves editing your original manuscript and transforming it into a higher quality of work. My job is not to write your story for you, but to enhance your writing in a way that maintains your voice as an author. 

The type of editing I do is copy, line, grammar, and developmental editing; I do not believe in editing a manuscript in only one area while ignoring the others. It is physically impossible, in my opinion. Lastly, I will also format your book so that it is ready to be published regardless of how you plan to publish your book.

The editing process can take up to two or three months to complete one project. This is to ensure that your work is of a high quality. In addition, I will not be able to work on your project as frequently as I would like to, so a longer time frame allows me to complete the process at a reasonable pace. 

In regards to the editing, there will be four copies of your manuscript: the Original Manuscript, the Rough Edits, the Second Edits, and the Final Edited Draft of your manuscript. This means that I will have gone through your work at least three times and having two additional copies serves as proof of the work completed in editing your text. A final copy will be emailed to you upon completion, and the Rough Edits copy is available upon request as well.
