Here is a photo of my dog. Oh, and also more information about some of my services. If you want more or different info, please ask!
Basic Copyediting: I go through your manuscript looking for errors (grammar, spelling, punctuation). This includes two passes.
Heavy Copyediting: All the good stuff that comes with the basic edit, plus I polish your words (some get deleted, some get changed, some get moved around). If they are BIG changes, I check with you before finalizing the edit. This includes two passes.
Website Editing: People read very differently online. I have studied this. I will do an edit that can be basic or heavy, but I also make changes to make your content more digestable for the Web environment.
Developmental Editing: You have an idea, an outline, a partial manuscript. You want help fleshing it out before you write it. I will work with you to take your idea and turn it into a set of steps that you can follow to complete your rough draft.
Manuscript Analysis: You send me a complete or mostly complete draft and I read it twice and send you a detailed letter giving you a summary of the strengths, the areas for improvement, and a list of specific suggestions to make your manuscript amazing.
