Manuscript Assessment *
An editor carrying out an assessment will read through your completed manuscript and focus on the overall structure, content and style of your manuscript. They will look specifically at your narrative; voice; plot; pace; characterisations; dialogue; readership, title, length and presentation. The editor will give a review of your manuscript and provide suggestions for improvement and ways for you to correct it.
Copy Editing *
A copy edit ensures that nothing disturbs the interaction between author and reader. We check the narrative flow, grammar, spelling and punctuation, consistency of styles, factual accuracy, legal concerns and more. This stage occurs before typesetting.
Proofreading *
Once a manuscript has been copyedited, our editor will do a final proofread of your book. This stage can also take place once the book has been typeset.
