What sort of edit should I choose?

Broadly speaking, every commercially published book will have gone through at least three editorial stages, and most self-published books will benefit from following a similar process:

  • a Stage 1 structural (developmental) edit to address the big-picture issues
  • a Stage 2 line- and copy-edit to focus on the nuts and bolts of the language, line by line
  • a final proofread to ensure that the formatted text is ready for publication

I offer Stage 1 and Stage 2 edits for novelists and travel writers.
