When reaching out for editing services, please let me know which type of editing you need and which type of regional English you use.
This is the most basic form of editing and involves correcting errors in spelling, punctuation, and grammar.
Copy editing corrects major grammatical mistakes and edits for fluency, sentence structure, consistency, voice (preserving the writer’s), and style.
Content Editing/Developmental Editing:
Content editing consists of an editorial letter and general comments in the first round, then specific comments in every additional round. I edit for plot execution, structure, characterization, pace, storytelling, and other non-grammar elements.
"It was a pleasure working with Stephi. In addition to basic editing services she gave insightful beta reading feedback. She is down to earth and friendly, not to mention affordable. I hired her to copy edit the opening pages of my book, and I liked the fact that she kept my voice. I would highly recommend her to writers." — Maya Kaddah, The Lost Piano
