When you're hard at work on your Heartbreaking Work of Staggering
Genius, you don't have time to worry about things like serial commas or
the difference between en and em dashes. That's what copy editors are
But copy editors do so much more than fix grammar and catch
typos. They spot repetition, misused phrases, and double-check that xiphos swords really are of Greek origin. A good copy editor can take your writing from "well,
there's good information here" to "wow, that's amazing!"
For $5, I
will copy edit up to 1,500 words of your work (about 5 pages in double-spaced, 12-point
font). That's 1/3 of the industry standard cost!
I check for:
Proper grammar, punctuation, word use, phrase use, and spelling
Basic facts (I won't do your research for you, but I will double-check details)
Consistency in details, style, etc.
Formatting according to current publishing standards
Abbreviations and jargon that your readership doesn't know
