All rates dependent on complexity, length, deadlines, and which level of editing you desire. I am happy to give a free sample of my skills on the first 2000 words of your manuscript for your consideration. Before I accept or bid on any project, I would like to read the first chapter to make sure I am the correct fit for your creation. NDA’s are fine.
Proofreading is the last run-through to catch problems with grammar, spelling, and punctuation. I am a fresh set of eyes to check for cosmetic errors. Proofreading does not include re-working text or re-arranging content, like copy editing.
I will make sure your manuscript is grammatically correct, free of inconsistencies, and your storytelling style flows well. Copy editing is about improving style, formatting, and accuracy to showcase the tale’s excellence. Light copy editing consists of double-checking accuracy and taking care of most grammatical issues. Medium copy editing includes tweaking flow and some minor re-working of the text. Heavy copy editing is restructuring some paragraphs or heavy corrections with the style, flow, and grammar.
Content editing is much more intensive than copy editing. To maintain accuracy and integrity of the story and style, new content might need to be added, sections of content might need to be re-written, and/or large portions of paragraphs or pages might need to be rearranged.
