Copy Editing

LINE EDITING FOR GRAMMATICAL, FORMATTING,

CONTINUITY ERRORS & MORE

Have you ever read a book that you had a hard time understanding what the author was trying to convey? Do typos and unclear text cause you to lose interest in reading? Copy editing is an essential part of the book publishing process. Find out more about our services below.

What's Included

  • Grammar, spelling and mechanical issues

  • Consistency

  • Tone

  • Clarity of message

  • Redundancy of words, phrases and ideas

 

Your manuscript will be reviewed line upon line, looking for grammar, spelling, consistency, word choice, jargon, consistent verb tense, proper capitalization, punctuation and mechanics. 

Timeline and investment varies by project and is based on many factors. For a 40,000 word count book, you can expect the entire copyediting process to take between six to eight weeks, costing between $1000 - $2000.

G.R.I.T.  Book Coaching Package

  • Do you want to write a book but don't know where to begin? 

  • Do you have mental/emotional blocks that prevent you from writing?  

  • Could emotional trauma be hindering your flow? 

If you answered YES, the G.R.I.T. Writers Coaching is for YOU! GET READY IT'S TIME!

What's Included

  G.R.I.T. Writers Coaching Packages provides:

  • 60 minute Zoom call to establish writing goals and timelines

  • Bi-weekly Progress Review Zoom calls including setting goals for next session, provide feedback and any address writing blocks

  • An agreement of  Accountability, Responsibility and Commitment to the coaching process

  • Customized Writing Plan based on your specific needs

  • Developmental editing feedback on up to 10,000 words to ensure sentence structure, tone and ideas are in alignment with your outline

  • Email communication between Zoom calls in case you feel stuck but also to celebrate your wins

 

Your Investment: 

The G.R.I.T. Coaching Package requires a minimum 3 month contract. Your investment is $500 per month, billed monthly. This time frame will provide you with your first draft, marketing plan, and revision/feedback plan. Some require a longer time commitment to finish the first draft. 

 

Single Book Coaching Call

For those not ready to commit to the G.R.I.T. Writers Coaching program, but need assistance with your book idea, this option is for you. 

This one hour call includes:

  • You can ask questions regarding the writing process, publishing process, your manuscript or any other question regarding your book project. You can only book ONE call per month. (The G.R.I.T. Writers Coaching Package in the long run will be more economical.)

To schedule your Single Coaching Call, send an email inquiry to graced2finish@gmail.com.

 

 

 

 

F.A.Q.

What if I have a completed outline?

  • We will review your outline to ensure it is laying a solid foundation for your book project, as it will serve as good starting point.

 

Why is there a 3 month commitment?

  • Writing a book takes time and commitment. The three month commitment gives us time to work together and see real results in completing your first draft. Considering the creative blocks and the frustrations that come from writing, when meeting consistently on a regular basis, we can accomplish more in 3 months than we can in a single session. 

  • The success of any coaching relationship is the time needed to develop a good working relationship.

Does the financial investment include any editing?

  • Book coaching includes developmental editing, where I provide feedback on  the tone, ideas and structure in your manuscript. 

  • Copy editing, which is performed after the first draft, is not included in the book coaching program. However, the cleaner your manuscript is before reaching the copyeditor, the less time and money it will cost. 

Why can't my manuscript be fixed during the copyediting stage, when there are writing issues?

  • Minimal issues such as redundant words or uncertain tone can be addressed by the bigger issues such as the structure of the manuscript and the overall tone will not be addressed in coaching. I will only make you aware that there is an issue but this is not the focus of what takes place in copyediting.
