If you are revising an early draft of your story, I can help you strengthen your story's foundations. In a developmental edit, I will give you feedback on plot, characterization, pacing, tone, language, world building, etc. by marking up the manuscript, and I will include a detailed editorial report to help you with revisions.

Copyediting is editing at the sentence level. This includes editing grammar, punctuation, spelling, mechanics of style, wordiness, and internal consistency. Your story is star material already, but let's tighten up the writing so readers will devour it.

Someone once told me that proofreading is quality management more than editing. One tiny error in a sentence can change the entire meaning of your words. I have an eye for detail and will catch the errors that could decrease the quality of your work.
