Copy-Editing (Technical)

Our experienced book editors are trained in the technical aspects of copy editing to help you through those final stages of adding the finishing touches to your novel.

A professional copy edit will ensure your manuscript meets the exacting standards required by any publisher or literary agent. This service is also ideal for anyone planning to self-publish their novel via Amazon Kindle or other online e-book self-publishing platforms.

The technical copy edit will focus on the grammatical aspects of your work and address sentence construction and punctuation. Technical copy editing will not touch on the creative development of the novel. The copy edit will cover:

  • Correction of syntax and grammatical sentence structure
  • Consistency of language including the use of British and American spelling
  • Consistency in spelling, hyphenation, numerals, chapter headings and capitalisation, punctuation, forms of address, use of italics and other relevancies
  • Internal consistencies throughout plot, setting and character traits
  • Internal timeline consistencies

We recommend that copy editing is one of the final stages in perfecting your work before sending it to an agent.
