Detailed services that we perform for editing, formatting and self publishing are:

Editing descriptions are as follows:
Copy editing – Copyediting is the process of checking for mistakes, inconsistencies, and repetition. During this process, your manuscript is polished for publication.
The copy editor is your partner in publication. We will make sure that your manuscript tells the best story possible. A copy editor focuses on the document at a more closer level.
A copy editor may review for clarity and readability as well as flow, grammar, word usage, spelling, and punctuation. They read your writing to focus on word repetition, and sentence/paragraph length.
A copy editor also corrects grammar or spelling errors, fixes punctuation, and makes suggestions as needed. A copy editor will focus on grammar, sentence structure, accurate word choices, verb tense, capitalization, punctuation, missed and repeated words, paragraph and sentence length. They may suggest reorganizing chapter titles or subheads as well.
Content editing – (also called developmental editing)
This is where an editor looks at your manuscript from the “big picture” viewpoint. A content editor makes sure the manuscript is well-written.
-The difference between copy editing and content editing (aka developmental editing) Although there are similarities between the various levels of editing, copy editing and content editing are two different things. Some of the similarities are that both copy editors and content editors examine the document in detail.
A content editor looks at your writing from a broader, big-picture lens. A content editor focuses on such things as character and plot development, dialog, pace, inconsistencies in storylines, factual errors, and sections/chapters. A content editor may offer feedback that suggests certain passages be rewritten; advises the adding, moving, or deleting of text; or helps with the plot, dialog or story.
Proofreading: Proofreading means examining your text carefully to find and correct typographical errors and mistakes in grammar, style, and spelling. Here are some of the things I will do. Spellcheck, eliminate unnecessary words and mistakes, correct grammatical errors, and ensure a consistent flow, and correcting words with the correct English.
Formatting – Involves putting your manuscript into a book size format that you desire. In other words the size of your book. The standard size that I use is 5.5 x 8.5 which is not too big or small. It is the standard book format. I also can format in other sizes, prepare for Amazon Kindle and Print book format for Amazon, and printing of your own books online. You can upload to Amazon for free, but to print your own books there is a cost. I can recommend and assist with this as well.
Cover Design – Having a nice cover is very important. A cover that stands out and grabs the attention of the reader is important to the overall sale of the book. Cover design can vary in costs depending on you using a professional or amateur graphic artist. I can provide standard template covers that can be edited, updated and changed for your use! Contact me about this! The cover is the last thing that should be done!
I can assist you in your manuscript, and the entire process of publishing your book, poetry, or expressive writing and publishing it on Amazon in print format and Kindle ebook format!
