Editing

Editing and cover design are the most crucial aspects to creating a successful book. Editing helps authors communicate to their readers–the best way possible. If a good story isn’t told right, it weakens the gravitas of an author’s work. In most cases, when a story isn’t told right, a story never gets out. No one recommends a poorly-written book and with the overwhelming competition in the market today, readers can easily opt to move on to work that is written well.

Types

Line editing

This is a form of writing support where an editor polishes an author’s work. Your work will be read line by line. Sentence structure, grammar, spelling, and story inconsistencies will be addressed and changed.

Developmental editing

This is a deeper form of writing support. An editor will look at structure and content, maybe even rearrange a few things to enhance the flow of your work.

Comprehensive editing

This is a very deep form of writing support that means your work needs more attention than just developmental editing or line editing. An editor will work through rounds of editing  with an author to smoothen out prose, tackle inconsistencies and weaknesses, and fix grammar and syntax.

Proofreading

  • Review for spelling, grammar, and inconsistencies.
