Basic Copyediting consists of a thorough cleanup that focuses on the mechanics of language—correcting grammar, punctuation, spelling, and typos. Copy editors also look for continuity errors (e.g., a character’s eyes are blue in one chapter and brown in another), and they will make sure the timeline tracks and the details are consistent. But they will not go as deep with the developmental feedback as the developmental editors do. The standard turnaround is 30 business days from the day you place the order. The price is 2 cents per word, with a minimum charge for books that are less than 13K words.
How to Send Your Files to be Edited:
- Send your manuscript in Microsoft Word or Rich Text Format (RTF) to firstname.lastname@example.org. A questionnaire will be sent to you to be completed.
- Complete the questionnaire noting any stylistic preferences and/or areas of focus within your manuscript.
- After receiving your edited manuscript, use Microsoft Word to accept or reject individual track changes and choose whether to incorporate the editor’s suggestions into your final manuscript.
