Kinds of Editing
Your Best Story offers two kinds of editing: developmental editing and copyediting.
Together, these two cover most issues a document can have. We can help you develop your story from scratch, or help you fix content you’ve already written.
You’ll find these different kinds of editing in book publishing as well as in the corporate space.
Developmental editors catch and fix problems on a grand scale—flaws that concern the entire story—and help you finish your story.
Developmental editors make sure your story will be a great read before a copyeditor zooms in on details like grammar and punctuation. Often the developmental editor recommends revising huge parts of your book, but you can be sure the result will be rewarding. In the end, your book will be solid, well motivated, and well structured.
Copyediting and Line Editing
Copyeditors make sure your manuscript is consistent in spelling, grammar, and usage, and that internal references, TOCs, captions, images, and tables are correct.
Copyediting comes in different levels, depending on how heavy an editorial hand your prose needs.
