The Edit

First, I will look at the manuscript as a whole to ensure that there are no glaring problems with the structure and then I get down to the detail, going through the text line by line. I will edit for sense, flow and consistency, ensuring that your story and characters will reach your readers in the way that you imagined. The Edit will also check for typos and other errors including spelling, grammar and punctuation. Basic formatting for e-book or print can be requested.

 

Be aware that this is not a proofread; your manuscript should be checked by a fresh pair of eyes prior to publishing, even if you decide not to commission the services of a professional proofreader.
