Unclear on what kind of edit you really need?

Want a sample to see if we’re a good fit?

Request a sample and an edit assessment on your current manuscript.

 

We’ll edit 1,000 words and tell you what level of edit we feel you need.

We do ask that the level of attention you apply to your sample is the same level of attention you apply to the entire manuscript. It's common for authors to "quit" midway through because of time constraints or stress but charge forward. This is your baby. We are not slaves.

A line edit will include:

  • In-line suggestions to rephrase or reword sentences to make your intent clearer.

Proofs

Your proofread is the last pass before you go to format and publish, so be sure that your manuscript is as clean as it possibly can be.

A proofread will include:

  • Looking for typos.

  • Missing or wrong words.

  • Missing and incorrect punctuation.

Let me be blunt. If you haven't invested the time and energy to clean your manuscript as much as you can, you are going to have errors even after a team of proofreaders goes through your manuscript. You're the most important person on your team. Use yourself wisely.
