Line-Editing, Copyediting, & Proofreading

Your manuscript, revised for improved grammar, spelling, and narrative flow. Returned to you in two weeks or fewer.

Line-editing, Copyediting, & Proofreading start dates available from June 4, 2019.

Line-editing, copyediting, and proofreading services are ideal for the author on the cusp of publication. Hiring Hatch Editorial Services gives you the following advantages:

  • Line-Editing/Copyediting: Whether it's adding dialogue tags, nixing flowery adjectives, or reintroducing that flashback into the main narrative, your manuscript will be revised with suggestions to improve pacing and narrative flow.

  • Proofreading: Your manuscript will be corrected for spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.

  • Fact-checking: For manuscripts that rely on historical, scientific, political, or other facts, I will make note of any factual errors.

I don’t want to say I’m surprised by how great working with Jessica has been, because that would imply I was expecting less.

But I think I have to, if only because I can’t figure out a better way to say she surpassed my not insignificant faith and trust in her and her work product. I appreciated Jessica’s flexibility and understanding leading up to my start date, I was grateful for her weekly updates, and I’m thrilled with what she’s sent back to me.
