Clean Sheet Edits

Professional Fiction and Non-Fiction Editing Services
  1. Copy Editing
    Addresses flaws on a technical level. Corrects spelling, grammar, punctuation, syntax. Ensures consistency in all of the above, as well as capitalization and fonts. Flags ambiguous or factually incorrect statements. Tracks macro concerns like internal consistency, for example in how a character or setting is described.
  2. Line Editing
    Improves the way you use language to communicate to the reader by addressing clarity, fluidity, ambiance, emotion, pacing, concision, tone, narrative arc, and character development. Removes clichés, generalizations, digressions, contradictions, and confusion. Provides creative tools for you to be a tronger writer in ways you can carry with you to future projects.
  3. Ghostwriting
    Translate a detailed outline of your project into a manuscript of fiction, creative non-fiction (typically biography or autobiography), or non-fiction. Project scope and how closely you would like to "co-author" is tailored to individual needs.
  4. Coaching
    Extensive use of margin comments, which address problematic areas to help you become a professional writer. Perfect for beginning writers who want control over their narrative yet struggle with items mentioned in the line and copy edit categories. Customized plan to help you identify and achieve your goals.
  5. Manuscript Evaluation
    For writers on a budget who want a set of general comments on how the manuscript is successful and how it could be more successful. Especially useful for writers who are looking for a set of professional eyes to catch something they may have missed. Receive advice on whether investing in a copy or line edit is recommended.
  6. Proofreading
    Much like copy editing, but without flagging anything beyond spelling, punctuation, grammar, and syntax.
