Writing is a painstaking business and, as you’re so close to your text, you’re the last person who should copy edit your book.
After a while the lines blur together – you convince yourself the words you’ve made up are perfectly cromulent, and you’ve decided to write colonel as kernel in silent protest of the ridiculousness of the English language.
Fresh, experienced eyes are the perfect potion for a manuscript’s maladies.
Spellbound’s enchanting copy editors have spent years huddled away in dusty libraries studying the nuances most people don’t have the time to worry about.
Under this copy editing service (also known as line editing), your book editor will comb your manuscript line-by-line to ensure it:
Aside from corrections, our copy editors believe in ‘common sense’ editing:
we question not only how your content is written, but what the reader will take from what is on the page.
At the end of the edit, the author will receive a clean, edited copy and an annotated version of the manuscript which shows all amendments. All changes will be displayed in Microsoft Word’s Tracked Changes for full transparency, allowing the author final say over what to accept, reject or amend.
Your Spellbound editor will then perform a final approval of the document to ensure there are no introduced errors.
