Frequently Asked Questions

  • I have additional questions...
    See the FAQ in the gallery. It provides more detail than this limited Q&A section could. After that, contact us as needed. There is no time-limit on talk.
  • What is Proofreading?
    FOR MANUSCRIPT: Pre-layout checking of textual content “as is” for spelling, punctuation, formatting, etc. You want your reader (customer) to have a smooth reading experience. FOR LAYOUT: The same for a print ready PDF to send to your press.
  • What is Copy Editing?
    Grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. Copy-editing is not Proofing; standards of textual communication through established rules (not traditions) of writing while acknowledging author alternatives that serve an observable purpose for the reader. THIS IS WHAT MOST INDEPENDENT AUTHORS NEED.
  • What is Line Editing?
    Paragraph, sentence, clause leading to precise reader comprehension regardless of authorial style. The industry standard Chicago Manual of Style is referenced as needed. Sometimes considered narrative as “heard” in the reader's mind vs. what the author thinks s/he has said.
  • What about combining modes of editing?
    Engage / purchase only the mode you need, though they overlap. EXAMPLE: during Line or Copy Editing, noticed typos, misspellings, etc. will be marked. Purposeful combining is possible once 1 editor is familiar with 1 author's body of work. Only amateurs do otherwise.
