I will correct objective errors in grammar, spelling, and punctuation, fix typos, and address any style issues according to The Chicago Manual of Style. This service assumes all style choices (repetitions, redundant language, unnecessary adverbs, etc.) and big-picture elements (lack of conflict, scene structure, characters, info dumps, etc.) are deliberate and were previously evaluated.

On top of fixing objective errors, line editing also improves the sentence-level craft of storytelling by clarifying meaning, improving flow and word usage, eliminating wordiness, flagging repetitions, and enhancing the narrative style. Line editing focuses on sentence-level issues and does not address big-picture elements.
Based on the sample edit, if your manuscript needs heavy editing and rewriting to improve the readability of the prose, a higher rate per word may be charged; higher rates are never invoiced without the author’s approval.
