Basic copyedit — Good content is your book’s most important element. A “clean” book is vital to influence potential readers and reviewers if you want optimal success for your message. I work with your manuscript, ensuring accuracy in spelling, punctuation, capitalization, grammar, and syntax. Editing is based on The Chicago Manual of Style, the publishing industry standard.
Content edit — Includes the basic copyedit plus an additional emphasis on enhancing organization, clarity, and flow. I look to strengthen the beginning of the manuscript as well as the beginning of chapters to draw and sustain the reader’s attention. I specialize in book shaping and development.
Interior book design
I utilize the industry-standard Adobe InDesign CS6 for the interior design and layout of your print book. Discover how typography and design can enhance your message or story. I also design book covers, employing key concepts in cover design theory to get your project noticed.
Digital books are styled and formatted to read on multiple eReaders and devices. Your eBook is formatted by hand, resulting in a professional, clean appearance across eReaders and mobile devices. Your eBook can be available with retailers like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and others.
