As an editor, I focus on making sure your voice is heard and understood by your readers. I will not change your voice or the meaning behind your story. I focus on helping you get your words to connect and be understood by your readers.
- Editors are trained professionals who will catch mistakes you might miss. You might read what you think you wrote instead of what you actually wrote. You also might fill in details that are not there.
- An unedited manuscript does not appear professional.
- You might have a detailed understanding of characters and scenarios, but this doesn’t always come through on the page.
- Your plot might be missing a few elements, and your editor can help you with this.
- An editor will point out parts of the story that don’t fit and might be unnecessary.
I will not share your work with anyone. I sign a contract before working on your project.
The time it takes to receive edited versions of your manuscript can vary depending on several factors, including the length of the book, the type of editing being done, and my workload at the time.
The type of editing being done can also affect the timeline. Different types of editing, such as developmental editing, copy editing, and proofreading, can vary in their level of intensity and the amount of time they take to complete.
I will discuss the expected timeline with you directly to give you a more accurate estimate.
