First, let's find out if you need copy editing or developmental editing.
A Copy Editor looks for basic grammar adherence. They check everything from spelling errors to nonsensical sentences to errant commas. At our core, we are proofreaders, verifying facts and checking text for style, consistency and readability. We make sure there are no speedbumps for your readers to trip over.
A Developmental Editor examines all the elements of your writing, from single words and the phrasing of individual sentences, to overall structure. We address plot holes and problematic characterization. We consider your target audience and judge your work in relation to professional industry standards and expectations. Once your manuscript has been revised through a developmental edit, it will be ready for a copy edit.
What does your story need to be the best version it can be?
If you feel confident about your spelling, grammar and punctuation, you may decide that a developmental edit is what you need. Conversely, if you're happy with the plot, the structure, and you believe the characterizations are strong, but your weakness lies in spelling, grammar and punctuation, you may simply wish to have a thorough copy edit before self publishing or submitting your story to a literary agent.
