Copy editing is one of the most essential services in the publishing business. It's difficult to judge your own work — you wrote it, after all, so you'll have a pretty good idea of what each and every sentence is meant to say. That's why you need a copy editor to use their professional expertise to ensure that every reader will be able to understand your work just as well.
A copy editor rework as needed to make sure your text flows perfectly; they’ll suggest stronger phrasing and point out overused words; and they’ll catch descriptive inconsistencies, so you never have to worry about that one side character suddenly changing eye color, or an item changing shape from page-to-page. A great copy editor will often write down why they're suggesting edits, too, so that you'll know what to look out for in your future edits — whether that's comma placement or smoothing out awkward phrases.
