COPY EDITING IS A PRE-PUBLICATION REQUIREMENT
FOR EVERY AUTHOR
If there's one stage in the editing process that you choose to hire a professional for, let it be this one. The copy edit is a requirement for any self-respecting publication. It analyzes the text on a line-by-line basis, using a fine-toothed comb to address and correct any technical errors in the manuscript. This includes spelling, punctuation, grammar, continuity errors, and even basic fact-checking (for fiction titles only).
Rates depend on the age category, genre, total word count, and requested turn-around time of the project.
