Overview

I love to read books and as a teacher mistakes jump out of the page to me. If you trust me with your manuscript I will handle it with care. I will correct spelling mistakes automatically and I can do the following edits:

Betaread:
Comments on character, plot and voice is the most basic edit.

Detailed Editing available by author Deborah White:
  1. Proofread: Correction of basic typographic errors.
  2. Copyedit: Includes a proofread.
A more involved proofread which corrects grammatical and punctuation errors, rectifies issues with capitalization /capitalisation and spelling, checks factual information, and ensures consistency among character, setting, and plot details.​​
3. Line Edit: Includes a copyedit and a proofread.
An involved and thorough edit that focuses on the language you use to communicate your narrative. It ensures tonal consistency, corrects pacing issues, improves dialogue, clarifies confusing language, and eliminates redundancy.​
4. Developmental Edit: Includes a line edit, a copyedit, and a proofread.
A developmental edit is a process in which the editor works closely with the author during the creation of the book to consult on story structure, character development, genre beats, language choices, style, and marketability.
5. I can create a Bible for your series on Trello.

Looking forward to reading your manuscript,

Deborah.
