Line/Copy Editing and Proofreading

Perhaps you are an experienced storyteller who struggles with the technical aspects of writing. Copy editing and proofreading services focus on different levels of editing, from tense and point-of-view consistencies to misused punctuation. Line editing, on the other hand, helps realign overall sentence structure, syntax, and consistency. With both basic and comprehensive line editing and copy editing packages—some that include custom cover art from Francois Vaillancourt and customized marketing guidance—you can't go wrong!

Comprehensive Editing and Developmental Editing

Maybe you need the all-encompassing features of a comprehensive edit, such as outlining assistance, blurb help, and cover art in addition to editing. Maybe you are looking to address developmental concerns to ensure rich character development, accuracy of sequence, and corrected narrative gaps. Either way, we can help, with detail-oriented packages that include custom cover art from Francois Vaillancourt and customized marketing guidance.

Short Story Packages, Manuscript Evaluation, Blurb, Formatting

Need help redefining your blurb, identifying the strengths and struggles of your novel, brainstorming your way out of writers block, finding a dependable beta reader, or formatting your polished project? I've got you covered! Our formatting services use both Vellum and InDesign, depending on the complexity of the formatting requested. We also offer manuscript evaluations that are as detailed as a light developmental edit. And just in case you're in the market, we offer experienced ghostwriting services. Send us an inquiry if you need more information.
