It’s your style. We enhance it.

Whether you’re writing a novel, a website, an article or a business document, we provide meticulous editing, copyediting and/or proofreading at all stages of development. Our specialty includes thorough editing and proofreading of:

  • Manuscripts prior to publishing
  • Query letters and synopses
  • Written articles, poetry and stories
  • Marketing materials and website copy
  • Corporate documents and reports
  • PowerPoint and business sales presentations

We can guide authors through the publication process, whether they seek to publish through an agent or prefer to self-publish. We can also help authors create effective query letters and synopses, develop personal bios and summaries for a book cover, and create discussion questions for a book.

Proofreading Versus Editing

Proofreading identifies:

  • Punctuation, spelling and grammatical errors
  • Typographical errors
  • Formatting inconsistencies

Basic copyediting includes proofreading as well as consistency of:

  • Audience suitability
  • Clarity of concepts
  • Content continuity
  • Formatting
  • Gender neutrality
  • Word usage

Heavy copyediting includes basic copywriting, plus identifying problems with:

  • Narrative flow
  • Organizational structure
  • Sentence structure
  • Dialogue

Developmental editing involves partial rewriting. In addition to heavy copyediting, developmental editing includes checking for holes or weaknesses in the plot, analyzing characterizations, ensuring correct point of view usage, and identifying areas to add and/or delete.
