Editing

 

Editing

The goal of editing your manuscript is to locate and correct grammar, punctuation, inconsistencies, and repetitive language. Everything needed to give your book that final polish before you publish.

Before We Start

 

Before accepting a job, Covey requests a 2,000 word sample of your manuscript, which we will edit for free to ensure our services align with the author's needs.

Copy Edit

Copy Edit

  • Correct spelling, grammar, punctuation, and syntax

  • Ensure consistency in spelling, hyphenation, numerals, fonts, and capitalization

  • Flag ambiguous or factually incorrect statements

  • Track macro concerns like internal consistency

Issues with plotting, sentence structure, language choices, and paragraph/dialogue breaks will be left as is.

Line Edits

Line Edits

  • Words or sentences that are overused

  • Run-on sentences

  • Redundancies from repeating the same information

  • Dialogue or paragraphs that can be tightened

  • Scenes where the action is confusing

  • Tonal shifts and unnatural phrasing

  • Bland language use

Does not guarantee that all spelling and grammar will be fixed, as a lot changes during this stage of editing.

Edit Bundle

Edit Bundle

Includes Line Edits and Copy Edits.

Second Pass

Second Pass

Sometimes, after your manuscript has been through a full edit, you might decide to significantly change passages within the manuscript that you would like to have reviewed before it's published. Covey will look those over for you to make sure it reaches the same level of quality as the rest of your manuscript.

This is not a full re-edit of the manuscript. Author must indicate which passages have been changed and require new edits. Must have purchased one of the edit levels above to qualify.

Structure Edits

Structure Edits

  • Covey's team will read through your story for content, structure, flow, style, clarity, and consistency. We'll help coach you through fixing sentence and paragraph structure to make your story stronger. 

  • This is an in-depth process that may take multiple times through your manuscript and does not include Line Edits or Copy Edits.
