Copyediting

$0.012 per word or $35 per hour

You get:

  • Line-by-line suggestions and comments with a focus on logic and word choice
  • Suggestions for fact checking
  • In-line suggestions to clarify your prose on a sentence-by-sentence level
  • In-line corrections on issues of grammar, spelling, punctuation, or formatting

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.
