Romance Book Editor

 

Content editing is also known by other names such as

substantive editing, developmental editing, structural editing.

 

A content edit is comprehensive as it entails a detailed edit of the entire plot, characters, flow, style, voice, and the basic structure of the story. If you want it to kick ass, I’m confident we can achieve that together.

 

It’s like building a house; you need the map to construct a house. A proper place to situate things. A plan. Consider content editing like that map to your story.

​I can sometimes be overwhelmingly enthusiastic, but I’ll at least try to behave, only dropping my reactions where absolutely necessary… aka EVERYWHERE! When I love a story, I love it wholeheartedly, and you won’t find a better champion for your book. You’ve been warned.

A line edit focuses on preserving an author’s voice while ensuring their words are received the way they are intended, hence enhancing the readability. It covers editing for tone, flow, clarity, and language. Line editing is the second step in the structure of the editing process. 

 

According to Phon Baillie at Edit Republic, a line edit deals with content at the sentence and paragraph level like poor word use, repetitiveness, muddled content, clarity, sentence flow, among others. 

Sounds boring? Nah, with Zai aboard, you won't have to worry about that. My friends/clients don't call me a little firecracker because of my size—well, maybe that too—but because of that zing I’ll bring to your manuscript. A dose of edits with a side of hilarity!

So, what makes line editing different to every other form of editing? Good question. Well, let’s break this down. While content editing is about the story and characters, and copy editing is about spelling, grammar and punctuation level changes, line editing is more about your writing as a whole. Yes, there is a clear overlap between them, but this looks closer at voice and style.  My role is to find the most effective language to tell the story…your story!

What is copy editing, I hear you say? Copyediting is the third step in the editing process. 

In a nutshell, copy editing improves the readability of written material and checks for grammatical and factual errors. It sounds pretty simple, right? Well, actually, it can be tricky, hence why I am here to step in and help. Let’s be honest, if you don’t know your “there” from your “their”, then it’s not going to end well. That’s where I step in. 

As part of the process, I check for inconsistencies, grammar on a moderate level, punctuations and spellings, repetitiveness of words and phrases, clarity of the story, readability, suggestions, among others. 

While my focus might be on the technical aspects, you’ll still get a fabulous dose of my feedback. That won’t stop me from swooning over your delicious characters or posting screenshots of hilarious in-the-moment reactions from yours truly!

Proofreading is the final step in the editing process. A proofread consists of checking for punctuation errors, grammatical issues, and minor formatting problems.

It is the final sweep of the document. 

Proofreading won't shield you against my endless squeals and comments. I will continue my hooligan-ness—wait, is that a word? and salivate over your seggsy scenes! Ooh, let's not forget the shouty caps every now and then, yeah! 

Turnaround time for an average 50k manuscript is 1-2 days.
