My name is Liz, and I provide freelance copy-editing and proofreading services for self-publishing fiction writers.
My ‘Error Elimination’ services are summarized below. Please refer to my Services and Charges page for a more detailed description of the services provided — to enable you to decide how I can best assist you with your writing project.
An in-depth technical examination of your manuscript—after it has been to a content/developmental editor. Copy-editing is a crucial step in ensuring your work is polished and at its best when you publish.
A detailed examination of your manuscript—after it has been through the various editing stages. It focuses on the small errors that your editors won’t check for because their job is to concentrate on the ‘big picture’ stuff.
Proofreading doesn’t cover all the editorial aspects of copy-editing, so it’s not a replacement for this step.
Final Read-Through (Typo Checker) Service
An ‘absolute final read-through’ of your work on a Kindle, before you publish, to catch those frustrating last few errors that somehow always seem to make it through your editing and proofreading stage.
This service is not a replacement for your proofreader or editors; it’s a final check, to help reassure you that you’ve made every effort to ensure your published book is ‘error-free’!
