Proofreading Comparing final typeset document (proof) against original manuscript for errors and inconsistencies.
Copy-editing 100% perfect spelling, grammar, punctuation, word usage, consistency and style. Readability and flow is improved but meaning is not changed. 24-hour turnaround guaranteed for short articles.
Stylistic Editing Improved clarity and expression. Polished prose that retains the author’s voice. Sentences may be re-written or eliminated.
Substantive Editing Working closely with the author to help their novel be the best it can. May suggest large structural changes related to character, plot and setting.
Manuscript Conversion US/Canadian to UK/Australian and vice versa. Differences in spelling and word usage will be changed automatically; differences in cultural references will be discussed with the author.
I specialise in crisp, evocative writing that captures a desired atmosphere or mood in a few short sentences.
