Copy editing

You’ve finished your manuscript’s final draft. What do you do now? It’s ready for copy editing.  

That’s where I come into the picture. I look for issues with spelling, grammar, style and punctuation, before it goes to proofreading. I check for inconsistencies in facts. I track changes so you know exactly what I’ve changed, and I leave comments and questions to clarify, flesh out or simplify.

If there is a problem with a transitions, wordiness, jargon, or outdated language, I’ll find it. Whether you’re self-publishing or prepping for a publisher, I’ll make sure your manuscript puts you in the best light.
