Copy edit

Your straightforward proofread. I’ll fix grammar, spelling, syntax, and punctuation, and ensure that your text adheres to the Chicago Manual of Style (US) or the Oxford Guide to Style (UK). Additionally, I’ll fact-check and ensure that everything is nice and consistent.

Comprehensive edit

The big dog. I’ll conduct an initial read-through, flag any big issues (relating, for example, to plot, character, style, pace, structure, etc.),  and send the commented-upon manuscript back to you with an editor’s report. You’ll then have a chance to look over and correct any of the broad issues I’ve flagged before resubmitting it for a full line edit. This line edit will meticulously tear apart your text line by line before putting it all back together, giving it a new lick of paint, and polishing it up. It’ll be glorious.
