Refinement is Vital
Editing puts a refinement on your manuscript. It makes writing more flawless and brief. A good edit is also about avoiding humiliation when you are promoting your book often times, readers tend to leave harsh comments about the typo errors and grammar lapses. Even the best writers in the world and traditionally published authors have their manuscripts edited several times.
Editing can be targeted at refining the overall arrangement and value of the manuscript, all writers need an extra set of eyes to catch typos and the anomalous untidy sentence. There are different types of editing depending on what your manuscript needs including:
Basic Editing (per-page rate) – Basic Editing corrects light grammar issues that include the eight basic parts of speech: verbs, nouns, adverbs, adjectives, prepositions, conjunctions, and determiner usage. Editors will also correct the spelling and punctuation, editors will also look for repeated and omitted words, as well as improper word usage (does not include formatting).
Proofreading + Basic Editing ( Advanced) - This level identifies issues with structure and mechanics like run-on sentences, tonal shifts, clichéd words, wording, pacing, dialogue, flow, and tense corrections. Most Issues are corrected, others are identified with suggested fixes.
You also get a full proofread so you will have both proofreading (grammar) and editing (structure) corrections to review.
NOTE: Estimated complete editing delivery is 4-6 weeks depending on the work queue. Editorial Analysis is a requirement before opting to get full editing service.
