Copyediting

 

 

The copyedit (also called a line edit) gets into the details of the manuscript. Sentences may be reworded or tightened up. A copyedit focuses on:

  • Sentence structure

  • Clarity

  • Consistency

  • Grammar

  • Punctuation

  • Spelling

  • Usage

A typical copyedit will cost between $20 and $30 per 1000 words.

For jobs smaller than 2500 words, a minimum project fee may apply.

Robin uses the current editions of The Chicago Manual of Style and Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary as her primary copyediting references.

For books with Christian content, she also utilizes The Christian Writer’s Manual of Style.

With a copyedit, you will also receive:

  • A customized style sheet

  • Weekly project updates

  • Comprehensive email support

Sample Edits

 

 

To help potential clients get a better sense of what I do and how we might work together, I offer the option of a 1,000 word sample edit.

The cost of the sample edit (usually around $20) will then be credited against the cost of a complete edit, should you decide to proceed with one.

I can usually complete a sample edit within two business days.

 

Robin was a pleasure to work with! She was professional, kind, and timely. Her edits to my book maintained my voice as an author but made the message much clearer for readers. I greatly appreciate her feedback!

Robin did an amazing job on improving and fixing my grammar/paragraphs. My book feels much more professionally written while still having my authenticity. I definitely would hire her again.
