WHAT I DO

🔎 Line editing and copyediting

➡️ Line editing assesses the manuscript on a line-by-line basis and addresses any issues that affect the flow of your prose.

➡️ Copyediting ensures consistency and clarity within the text.

➡️ I provide line and copyediting as a combined service, which looks at:

✔️ Format of dialogue
✔️ Redundancy and repetition of words
✔️Point of view issues
✔️ Sentence length and structure
✔️ Cliché and metaphor use
✔️ Overwriting
✔️ Errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation
✔️ Consistent style (e.g. ise/ize, capitalisation and use of hyphens).

🔎 Proofreading

➡️Provides a quality control check for remaining errors after the manuscript has been professionally edited and looks for:

✔️ Errors in spelling, grammar and punctuation
✔️ Consistent style (e.g. ise/ize, capitalisation and use of hyphens).
✔️Any formatting and spacing issues.

😱Or you might say ‘I don’t know what service I need. I just want my book sorting out!’
👍🏼That’s fine. I can do that.

Clare has helped me out on numerous occasions with proofreading and editing my business documents. She provides sensible suggestions for changing the text where necessary and corrects all my typos and grammar/spelling errors. Clare has eagle eyes and notices issues that I would never pick up on myself. I cannot recommend her services highly enough.
