Copyediting by your tenacious editor Amy Bee at LION BY THE TAIL

A good copyedit makes a great impression

You’ve addressed all the structural issues in your story and your manuscript has benefitted from an impactful sentence-level edit. Now it’s time to take your manuscript to a professional level with a copyedit. My job is to scour your manuscript for errors, focusing on several key issues, including:

  • grammar
  • punctuation
  • spelling
  • capitalization
  • character/scene/description inconsistencies
  • word repetition and/or redundancies
  • style and usage consistency (Chicago Manual of Style)
  • fact-checking

I will also leave brief comments based on my observations in your manuscript and create a style sheet that reflects your style choices.

Amy was wonderful to work with.

She completed the project on time and, as a highly skilled editor, was able to polish my manuscript and make it shine. I loved her work.
