Is your manuscript everything it can be? Is the message of your proposal unclear? Will your site content be understandable to a wide audience?
Worried that some typos snuck in to your content? Could your copy use a thorough, detailed check before it goes to print or live on a site?
If your manuscript’s structure could be more logical, user-friendly, or flow better, I can help reorganize its content and structure.
Do you want to review the overall manuscript for plotting, characterization, or issues of consistency before submitting to a publisher or publishing by yourself?
If you re-read your work, you can find on re-reading a great deal of repetition can be avoided by re-reading and editing.
