We need you to do a copy-edit on the manuscripts (and blurb) we send you.
This copy-edit is the process of reviewing and correcting written material to improve accuracy, readability, and fitness for its purpose. Please make sure that the manuscript and back copy blurb is free of error, omission, inconsistency, and repetition.
We do have three different levels of copy-editing: a light edit, a medium edit and a heavy edit. We will let you know which one level needs to be done and pay accordingly. If we don’t tell you otherwise, it’s always going to be a light edit.
Also, Consistent verb tenses is part of a simple edit. I cannot stand to read a manuscript with tenses being mixed and not fixing it. If you are seeing a pervasive and persistent problem in a manuscript you are reviewing, please stop editing, notify us and we will give the authors the choice to either fix it themselves or pay extra for you to fix it.
*PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU SEE ANY CURSE, OR SLANG WORDS, HIGHLIGHT THESE AND LET THE PROJECT MANAGER KNOW PROMPTLY!
*PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU FEEL THAT THE BOOK YOU ARE EDITING, THE AUTHOR IS USING REAL NAMES IN A STORY AND MAY REFLECT BAD ON US, PLEASE LET THE PROJECT MANAGER KNOW THIS PROMPTLY.
