Manuscript Critique

Similar to Developmental editing, a manuscript critique assesses your project from the reader's point-of-view. However, a manuscript critique is simpler and more like a review. We'll write you a detailed editorial letter that addresses the strengths and weaknesses of your work with a focus on the genre you have chosen. Afterwards, we'd love to have a live chat to discuss your questions.

Total Package Edit

This is the whole kit and caboodle! When you choose the Total Package Edit, you will get up to 2 rounds of Developmental editing, up to 3 rounds of Copyediting, and a final Proofread before going to publication. We will be with you 100% of the way. 

Developmental Editing

Developmental editing is the edit of your book from a reader's point-of-view. We read the entire manuscript cover-to-cover once as a reader, and then go back with editor eyes for a deep dive to discuss overall plot, theme, and structure. You'll get notes and suggestions throughout your manuscript to make it the most engaging, pleasurable reading experience it can be. 

Copyediting

Here at CCE, we combine what is traditionally considered Line and Copyediting. For this level of editing we'll discuss your writing on a sentence and paragraph level. We'll look for clarity, consistency, wordiness, passive vs. active voice and more along with the basics of spelling, punctuation, and grammar.

Proofreading

This is it, the last chance to make sure all the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed. This is the last step before going to publication, so we only offer this service on projects that have already been, at least, copyedited.

Comics/Graphic Novels

We offer editing services at all stages of the process; scripts, pencils, inks, color, and production. We also offer help in story direction and creative choices. Comic continuity requires consistency and clarity of editing; we ensure the story is told through the efforts of both words and art, that one doesn't overshadow the other.

What our customers are saying

Sarah is one of the best clients I've worked with. She listens to suggestions, is honest and open about what she's looking for, and feedback was clear and straightforward. I'd work with her again in a heartbeat!
