Editing & Re-Writing
Need to have a professional wordsmith come tune and tighten your writing? We can clean up, clarify, and help breathe creativity into short documents, full-length books, and anything in between.
We offer different editing options to accommodate your needs. One editing option is Annotation—we mark up the document and add comments but leave the original text intact. Alternately, we can edit with Track Changes, where we make changes directly and let the program (such as Microsoft Word) note the differences for you.
When we deliver an estimate, it includes a time ceiling beyond which we cannot bill you. If we estimate a ceiling of 12 hours, in other words, we won’t bill more than 12 hours even we need 14 hours to do the work. (It’s our way of guaranteeing the quality of our hourly work.)
We adhere to Chicago style for most style and formatting conventions. Please notify us in advance if this is an issue or if you have different standards we should follow.
On the other hand, if your book is not terribly sensitive to widespread small changes, we recommend Track Changes. Most of the changes we think to make are way down in the weeds—things like adding Oxford commas, removing stray spaces, fixing dashes and hyphens, making spelling or one-word corrections. This way, all of the recommended corrections are already incorporated into the text, and the Track Changes system allows you to comb through and approve one little bit at a time.
