What will you get when you work with me?
You will get an editor who pays rigorous attention to detail. You will get a thorough review of your manuscript, to ensure things like: every email is spelled without a hyphen, that quotation marks and italics are used consistently, that six-figure always has a hyphen, and that words like internet are always capitalized (or not). I will ensure your book follows a consistent rule for using numbers as numerals or words, that chapter titles and headings follow consistent a capitalization style, and the titles of books, newspapers, blogs, are podcasts are italicized. Your book will be clearer, grammatically correct, and consistent throughout. It will be shiny and one giant step closer to publishing.
Wait! There’s more…
I not only provide authors with their meticulously copyedited or proofread book, but I also insert comments with suggestions for ways to make your text clearer, smoother, or less redundant (like line editing).
Furthermore, I deliver a summary report and detailed style sheet with your copyedited book.
The report will summarize your strengths as a writer and highlights of your book, as well as areas you focus on to improve your writing.
The style sheet tells you number, grammar, and punctuation rules I followed, as well as decisions made for spelling and hyphenation of words (e.g., email, eBook, in-between, internet, long-term, smartphone). This is a useful communication tool for you, the author, and any other editors you may send your book to after me. (Sometimes authors have a book copyedited multiple times, then proofread to make the book as close to perfect as possible.)
