This all-in-one editing package includes three separate passes through your manuscript with an opportunity for author feedback between each level.

 

Stage One: The package begins with a rigorous line edit, which

 

  • Eliminates wordiness, phrase repetition, and overused jargon

  • Flags areas where the narrative needs strengthened

  • Restructures awkward sentences to improve flow and readability

  • Ensures that dialogue is natural and convincing

  • Corrects errors in sequencing and tense

  • Suggests or implements improvements to prose (e.g., descriptive language, enhanced details)

  • Keeps the writing tight and polished

 

All edits and comments are made via the Track Changes feature in Microsoft Word. The manuscript will then be returned to the author, who will incorporate the changes and make additional revisions and rewrites.

 

Stage Two: The second phase, or the polishing phase, includes a thorough copy edit to

 

  • Correct faulty spelling, grammar, and punctuation

  • Fix incorrect word usage

  • Ensure consistency in spelling, hyphenation, numerals, fonts, and capitalization

  • Correct problems with parallel structure

  • Flag incorrect vocabulary, sayings, and figures of speech

  • Track minor to moderate continuity of plot, setting, and character traits

  • Highlight ambiguous or incorrect statements

 

The manuscript will be returned once more to the author, who will then make any final revisions.

 

Stage Three: This final proofread prepares the manuscript for publication and checks for last-minute minor errors in

 

  • Spelling

  • Punctuation

  • Grammar

  • Word choice and usage

  • Clarity or consistency

 

After stage three is finished, the manuscript will be returned to the author fully polished and ready for publication.

 

Pricing Information: $.02 per word.

Please note that this package represents a significant savings over choosing to receive each service separately or hiring more than one editor and proofreader.
