Readers demand perfection in language. It isn't necessarily reasonable, but there it is. You see it everywhere online; use the wrong 'their/there/they're', and the trolls are all over you. Don't let this happen to your book. In all too many negative reviews on self-published books, you will see 'poor editing' come up as one of the reasons they didn't like it.
Our professional in-house editors will handle your needs. For a per-word rate, they can look for everything, or focus their time on specific concerns, such as typographical errors, spelling, grammar, tense issues, style, and more. If you wish to have your book evaluated front to back, but are working within a strict budget, let us know and your editor will ensure that the project is done in that timeframe, catching and correcting as many errors as possible within the specified budget.
Copy Editing is what you are most familiar with: spelling, punctuation, capitalization, verb tenses, and other grammatical errors. It also includes checking continuity, sentence structure, paragraph lengths, missed words, word choices, etc. Basically, copy editing involves correcting the language of your book.
Content Editing checks your book for factual errors, inconsistencies and contradictions. If the book is fiction, our editor will look for discrepancies in the plot, dialogue, or character behaviors/speech. We check whether the theme has been developed properly, or whether the sub-plots have been well integrated into the story line. This is basically an evaluation of the content itself.
