Hire copy editors in Cambridge

Are you at a stage of the writing process where you’re confident about your book’s structure, plot, and characters— but you’re just not as sure about the way that your story is written and expressed? If so, you might be in need of hiring an editor for the all-critical copy edit.

Next to the developmental edit, a copy edit is the most important edit that your book can undergo. Great professional copy editors will spot the grammatical errors and spelling typos, sure — but their influence will extend even further than that. Such a copy edit improve your sentence structure, fix vague wording, and point out inconsistencies in your story. In short, they’ll make your story clearer, tighter, stronger — and that much more ready for publication.

As you might be able to imagine, finding the perfect copy editor for your book specifically can be a difficult task. The most ideal partner will not only have years of experience under their belt, but and also have worked in your particular niche before. That’s why Reedsy is worth your time.
