I do what I call a “developmental/line edit.” The focus is to help you, the author, tell a better story. The developmental side of the edit will include suggestions on re-structuring the manuscript, addressing redundancies, cutting or adding text, including or deleting particular lines of inquiry, and strengthening arguments as needed. The line editing side of the edit will enhance the strength of the manuscript and smooth out the writing style through suggestions on flow of text, clarity of voice, use of language, and development of content. Although I will not do a copy edit (typographical errors, grammar and punctuation errors, or inconsistencies in capitalization and numerals), any of these errors will be corrected as they catch my eyes. This process will include a dialogue between us, ensuring factual accuracy of the text, preservation of your voice and intent, and a better manuscript for presentation to your publisher.
