Solutions



My featured solution, a complete Book Overhaul, is designed to prepare your manuscript for self‑publishing. Click a service below to view specific details. Is your book publication-ready?

When editing books, I go through the manuscript from start to finish, making copyediting and line editing corrections as I read.

Copyediting: spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, pronouns, spacing, verb-tense and basic formatting consistency.
Line editing: eliminating redundancy and extraneous words and phrases, adjusting sentence and paragraph structure, rewriting run-on sentences, replacing overused words with synonyms, and substituting stronger alternatives for weak words, phrases, and sentences while keeping original tone; related topic and term research, fact-checking

Along the way, I insert side comments with questions regarding anything that needs clarification. I will also note any issues regarding images and quotation sources,

Interior images (first 6): grayscale and dpi conversion (printed); resizing (eBook)

provide suggestions for additional content, and provide targeted feedback.

Nonfiction books: Feedback about any issues related to tone, audience, details, logical order, clarity, consistency, structure, transitions and overall impression.
Fiction books: Feedback about any issues related to characterization, plot, pacing, setting, dialogue, transitions, craft, and overall impression.

If relevant front and back matter are missing, I will add them to the book and highlight any missing information.

Title page, copyright page, dedication, epigraph, table of contents, foreword, preface, acknowledgements, introduction, prologue, epilogue, about the author page, references, appendix, index.

For nonfiction titles, I will provide suggestions for reorganization and subheadings when necessary.

My Book Overhaul is all-inclusive; thus, I do not offer each element of editing as a separate service. The Overhaul also includes formatting for eBook publication.

eBook formatting: indents, spacing, paragraphs, alignment, bulleted lists, hyperlinks, styles, sections

If you plan on publishing your book in paperback as well, I will handle the print formatting** after editing and revisions are complete.

Paperback formatting: headers, footers, margins, page numbers, sections, styles (**not included with Overhaul; additional service only offered in combination with editing)

Editing of book cover text (front, back, spine), and marketing copy is included. Additional feedback not addressed in side comments will be attached in a Notes file. DocEditing.com does not provide ghostwriting, cover design, marketing or publication.

I also offer website content editing. When editing website content, I review, copyedit and line edit webpage text, text in rotating images, pop-up menu and comment text, background text, and link titles.

Copyediting: spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, pronouns, spacing, verb-tense and basic formatting consistency.
Line editing: eliminating redundancy and extraneous words and phrases, adjusting sentence and paragraph structure, rewriting run-on sentences, replacing overused words with synonyms, and substituting stronger alternatives for weak words, phrases, and sentences while keeping original tone; related topic and term research, fact-checking

DocEditing.com does not provide content creation, website design, site coding, or SEO.
