Copy Editing


With my editorial assistance, you can concentrate on telling your story and bringing your characters to life. It’s your world, and I won’t try to change that.

My job is to be your final reader before publication.  One last set of eyes checking for and correcting oversights in spelling, grammar, syntax, word usage, and punctuation. I will also check for consistency and continuity.

I offer two levels of service: Standard and Enhanced.

In Standard Copy Edit I will fix everything I find that is wrong: misspelled words, incorrect tenses, misused words, nonstandard punctuation, etc.  I will also note in the margins words or sentences that aren’t as clear as you would probably like.  If there’s a continuity problem, I’ll let you know. I will point out repetitive language but leave the heavy lifting to you.

In Enhanced Editing you’ll get everything I offer in Standard as well as fact checking, suggestions on word choice and sentence structure, and minor rewriting.

I won’t hijack your work.  My only goal is to improve readability to give your readers the story you had in mind from the start.

A.M. Yates, the USA Today bestselling author of The Summoners series, The Horizon Cycle, and The Stealer series, had this to say. “Julie is an excellent editor and a real pro. Aside from catching all those pesky missing articles, her suggested revisions have made my writing stronger without interfering with my personal style and the genre demands. I’ve worked with other freelance editors, but since working with Julie, I now consider her MY editor. Which makes writing this review tricky, because she’s so awesome, I want to keep her secret.”
