Leigh Finley | 1 comments Hello,
Just had my first manuscript proofread, however the proofreader suggested I have a copy editor look it over to help with the flow of it. I rather like the flow and the tenses that I use so I don't want it to be altered too much but maybe another set of eyes to read the first couple chapters to make sure I'm not completely crazy.
It is a romance, new beginning novel. Any help at all would be wonderful!

J.M. Rankin (jmrankin) | 64 comments Hi Andrea,

I am a fully qualified copy editor and proofreader, with over seven years experience working with publishers, agents and authors alike on a variety of genres.

I always offer to edit the first 1500 words for free, so that I can assess the level of work involved and also so the author can see how I would work with their manuscript. An edit should always be completed before a proofread, as proofreading is what should take place just before publication, to ensure any last typos etc are picked up.

I am happy to discuss your manuscript with you in more detail, so please do not hesitate to contact me here on Goodreads, via my direct email whitediamondedits[at]gmail.com, or my website www.whitediamondedits.wordpress.com.

Best wishes

Hi Andrea

If your proofreader is recommending a copyedit, then I would suggest that would be well worth your while. Any editor should be honouring your style but improving it for the reading experience.

I'm a copyeditor/proofreader working in the UK, so probably not suitable, but you're welcome to check out editing/publishing advice in the blog on my site: www.coinlea.co.uk.

Good luck in your search for an editor, and with your book.

M. Harrison (mharrison) | 8 comments Hey Andrea,

Sounds like you might need a beta reader. Sometimes it helps to just have a focused reader take a look at it in its entirety without an eye to editing. My company offers beta reading for a great rate. Take a look at our website.


And good luck with your manuscript!
