Copy Editing Services for Book Writers
Writing a book is an exciting adventure. You’ve spent countless hours developing your story or message, writing down the words, and polishing it to the best of your ability. You’re about to send it off to the publishers, but wait!
Now it’s time for a professional edit.
"Why do I need a professional edit?" you ask.
A professional edit that includes an editorial critique and an in-depth line edit by an experienced editor will help you identify areas in your book that need strengthening or fixing.
But you also need a great editor who can:
Be a professional pair of fresh eyes to catch mistakes you might have missed
Give you insight into how to improve your book
Recommend ways you can strengthen your messages, characters, and plot
Let you know whether or not you’re on the right track (and give you direction if you need it)
Cheer you on and motivate you to keep working toward your writing goals
A common misconception about writers is that all writers are experts in grammar, spelling, and structure. The truth is, "writer" doesn't mean "expert in language". Some of us excel in that area, but most writers don’t have all the answers to every question about the English language.
But we are passionate about the stories we write.
As the writer, you’re so close to your writing work. Over the past several months (or years), you’ve lived and breathed your story. Toward the end of the road, you even cursed it, wishing you could hurry it up and finish it already.
You’re too close (and exhausted) to see things that need improvement. It’s like driving when you’re tired. It’s dangerous! You’re likely to miss things that need to be fixed before you submit it to publishers.
That's where your editor comes in. And while your manuscript is in her workshop for a thorough assessment for repairs and improvements, you can start your next book.
It's the editor's job to provide practical and applicable feedback and encouragement that helps you share your story with clarity, quality, and creativity.
Whether you are self-publishing or sending your fiction manuscript to a traditional publisher, I can help you become a better writer. That's my passion!
