What you get with this Hourlie
Copy editing (also known as line editing) is one of the most – if not the most – important step in getting a book published. You can have the most dazzling story, the most engaging prose, but if your sentences don’t quite settle on the reader’s tongue or the semicolons seem misplaced, it’ll dissuade a reader from your book. Copy editing is about removing any and all of those subtle or glaring confusions.
My services include:
-Correcting spelling, grammar, punctuation, syntax, and word usage while preserving the meaning and voice of the original text.
-Checking for or imposing a consistent style and format.
-Reading for overall clarity and sense on behalf of the prospective audience.
-Checking and correcting page formatting (indentation, paragraphing, etc.).
I take pride in timely communication and fast turnarounds – with a reputation for delivering ahead of time. All content I receive will be addressed with total confidentiality and with customized corrections based on your requests.
As an additional service, which can be very important for catching plot holes, developing characters, and ensuring your content is at its peak level, I offer an intense critique of your work. I will evaluate your content sentence by sentence as I copy edit, giving suggestions for improvement based on pacing, description, phrasing, characterization, plotting, and the general flow to the story.

What the Seller needs to start the work
The completed manuscript and any specific editing requests you have in mind (such as avoiding the Oxford comma or keeping certain words capped).
Cheyenne is nothing short of a delight to work with. Polite, prompt and professional throughout I can't recommend her enough.
Thank you so much, Dan. It was as lovely working with you for the second time as it was the first.
Cheyenne delivered above and beyond expectations. The project was completed ahead of time and communication was polite and professional at all times. The changes and feedback have already shaped the work into something a million times better than it was before. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much, Dan!
