Copy editing is line-by-line correction of spelling, punctuation, capitalization, grammar, and word usage. Using The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th Edition and Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, I’ll flag inconsistencies, unusual phrasing or word choices, and perform fact-checking (as needed). This is the service every book needs before publication. I also recommend having your manuscript proofread after layout for typos and formatting errors.
