From You: a Word file (.doc or .docx) containing all the text you intend to publish, including front and back matter.

Details

I will flag missing words and correct errors in spelling, punctuation, and grammar; identify and correct typographical and formatting errors; make sure the spelling of proper names and non-English words, as well as numbers, figures, and descriptions, are consistent; and check that all hyperlinks work and lead to active web pages.

A copyedit is intended for polished manuscripts that require minimal rewriting (see my line edit service for editing that will address issues in clarity, style, and flow).

Email Elizabeth for her availability and to schedule your manuscript.


A PayPal fee will be added to the total cost of the edits. It is calculated using http://thefeecalculator.com.
5% GST will be added to Canadian orders.
