Copyediting

$0.012 per word or $29 per hour

You get:

  • Line-by-line comments with a focus on logic and clarity, grammar and formatting, and suggestions for fact checking
  • In-line changes to correct and perfect your prose on a sentence-by-sentence basis

WHEN DO I USE THIS?

This is the third step to editing a book. If you only want to fix grammar, spelling, punctuation, formatting, and check for logic/clarity, then this step is where to start.

WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO DO THIS STEP?

We can proceed directly to proofreading if you just want to make sure you have no remaining typos or obvious errors. However, skipping this step means the proofreading will miss other issues such as possible contradictions or improper grammar or use of formatting.

  • Heavy copyedit, which combines developmental editing and copyediting in a cascading revision process (please inquire for price details)
