Our Editing Services

Stylistic Editing

Also called line editing, stylistic editing involves maintaining or establishing clarity, tone, mood, and style, and ensures the writing is suitable for its intended audience and purpose. Stylistic editing can overlap with copy editing.

Structural Editing

A structural edit also looks at the overall structure and content of your book but, unlike a developmental edit, here the editor makes the changes for you. This means that a structural edit considers all your objectives as an author:
•    Your ideal readers
•    How you want to position yourself as an expert
•    How you want to promote your book
•    What you want the book to achieve
•    And more
The editor then restructures your entire book to fit your vision. 

Copyediting

While a structural edit looks at the book as a whole, a copyedit looks at paragraphs and sentences and at correcting your spelling and grammar. This means that, while individual paragraphs may be restructured and reworked to improve readability, a copyedit won’t look at the structure of the entire book.

Proofreading

Proofreading only focuses on your spelling, grammar, punctuation, typos and consistency. A proofread is like a more accurate version of spell check (with more clarity). Proofreading includes:
•    Correcting all your spelling, grammar and punctuation
•    Correcting all your typos
•    Reviewing your text for consistency

 

NOTE: Just because something is grammatically correct, doesn't mean it makes sense.

Developmental Edit

A developmental edit looks at the overall structure and content of your book at the changes you can make to improve it. That means no corrections to your spelling and grammar, no reorganizing or cutting your content, and no rewriting awkward passages. Instead, a developmental edit focuses on giving you feedback so you can make the changes.

Comprehensive Editing (Recommended)

This is a complete editing package where the editor combines the copyediting, structural editing, and proofreading to provide a complete comprehensive edit of a written work. This service is often combined with our formatting and layout services—which includes the design, layout of the content, running heads, captions, and more—to transform a completely edited and designed manuscript into a fully marketable book via one of our publishing partners. 

This is an estimate, and not a quote. Final prices will be determined after a consultation with the editor.

“Your book touched my heart just like the plays that you write. It amazes me the artist in the artist of writing, how you are enabled to open yourself to receive from God thoughts and touch the hearts of people.”
