Types of Professional Book Editing
This high-level examination looks at narrative voice, plot, and character development. Feedback is given on items that will help improve your overall story.
Comprehensive Edit / Line Edit
This comprehensive edit addresses structural issues as well as a line edit, which looks closely at writing style and language.
A copyedit reviews technical flaws—issues with spelling, grammar, and punctuation—and looks for internal inconsistencies throughout the text.
This is the final step in the editing process. A proofreader examines the final copy of the manuscript (usually after typesetting) for any awkward page breaks. This editor might perform light copyediting.
