Manuscript Editing & Preparation
EDITING: WHAT KIND DO I NEED?
Every work is a unique animal; some are thoroughly refined, in need of a little polish, while others need some serious help before publication should be sought or considered.
1. Comprehensive Critique
Not sure if your work is ready for prime time just yet? A comprehensive critique of your work will help identify any major problems that should be addressed before you invest in other editing services.
Looking to boost the overall quality of your manuscript? Substantive editing analyzes your manuscript for plot holes, slips in perspective or tense, disruption in flow and much more.
3. Line Editing
As the name implies, line editing polishes your manuscript one line at a time to make it more presentable to agents, publishers and end-readers.
Regardless of how much time you’ve invested in your writing, mistakes have a way of persisting. Proofreading is your last editing line of defense against typos, mistakes in word usage, perspective, tense, punctuation and formatting.
5. Beta Reading
Before presenting your wares to the masses, beta readers can offer valuable feedback on the viability of your completed work. Think of them as a focus group; if there’s a problem in your book, they’re going to let you know about it.
