About our Fiction Copy-editing service

Get your book ready for submission with our Fiction Copy-editing service.  Our consultant will look at your writing in depth and ensure there are no plot holes, and that your novel is logical and consistent.

Copy-editing is a big step beyond proofreading.  As well as smoothing over any grammar, spelling and punctuation errors, our consultant will suggest where language can be altered to be more effective or enhance the story.

They will also check the story is properly presented and give feedback on any other key details they feel are constructive.  After going through this process your manuscript will meet the requirements of publishers and be in a much stronger position.

Copy-editing your project will make it a more professional submission, and ensure agents and publishers are not distracted by irritating errors. This is a service that focusses on your writing, rather than the structure of your story.

Don’t rush to send your novel out too soon – make sure it’s in the best shape possible, or your hard work could be wasted!
