How We Polish Your Manuscript
Looks at the overall manuscript and focuses on plot, character development, theme, point of view, etc. When do you need it? If you've finished a draft and want to make sure it works.
Line Edits and Copy Editing
With line edits, we focus on writing style and voice, identify awkward phrasing, repetition, passive voice, telling vs. showing, inconsistencies, etc. With copy edits, we correct grammar, spelling, commonly confused words, consistency, etc.
With proofreading, we ensure your manuscript is as error-free as possible. The edited copy is checked for any lingering typographical errors, layout issues, page numbers, etc.
An introductory sample edit will give us an idea of what your manuscript needs.
Introductory Sample Edit
I'm excited to learn about your style and read your work. Send me the first five pages of your manuscript, and I will provide a complimentary sample edit. This allows us both to move forward with confidence and comfort.
“Dianne is a breeze to work with and she is always professional. She takes my unconventional thought process and helps me shape it into a clean, consistent manuscript every time. I don’t know where I’d be without her!”
Hunter J. Skye, author of The Hell Gate Series and the Black Hills Shifters
