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:

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.​

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.
