Copy Editing Services
Our editing team can provide copy editing on a finished manuscript in preparation for publishing. This service includes review of the existing manuscript, with detailed, written “suggested” changes within the manuscript for you to approve or deny in Google docs.
A copy edit is an important step in the process of writing, editing, and publishing a book. Copy edit occurs after a developmental edit, and prior to proofreading. The purpose of a copy edit is to “polish” the manuscript. Your editor will be looking to identify and correct errors or inconsistencies in grammar, spelling, tone, style, and syntax. Most publishers, including our own Merack Publishing, require manuscripts to go through a thorough copy edit prior to publication.
If you are interested in having your manuscript copy edited, please reach out to a member of our team for a custom quote.
If your manuscript needs a developmental edit or you would like writing support from our team, we also have these services available at an hourly rate under “Writing Coaching Services.”
