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 copyeditors are for!
But copyeditors do so much more than fix grammar and catch typos. They spot repetition, misused phrases, and that John-who's-only-in-three-scenes has blue eyes in chapter 2 and green eyes in chapter 29. A good copyeditor can take your writing from "well, there's a good story here" to "wow, that's amazing!"
For $5, I will copyedit up to 1,500 words of your work (about 6 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
Excess words that add nothing to the story
Consistency in details, descriptions, style, etc.
Formatting according to current publishing standards
Abbreviations and jargon that the general readership doesn't know
