Copy editing is for full fiction manuscripts that are ready to be polished for pitching. Think of copy editing as making your prose "correct." I am happy to do a 5-page* sample edit upon request.
- A meticulous read of your manuscript
- Fixing of spelling, grammar, usage, and punctuation errors
- Flagging of any inconsistencies
- An editorial letter outlining any questions or concerns I have
Note: Manuscripts that have fatal flaws or other foundational problems are not ready for a copy edit.

"I knew it would be helpful to have a professional proofreader go through my PhD dissertation, but I had no idea it would be THIS helpful! Katie's attention to detail is off the charts and she truly helped me put together a thesis that I can submit with confidence. Every PhD student and aspiring author should use Craft Better Books!"
