Work with Carly
Structural editing - Structural editing (or developmental/substantive editing) focuses on a broad view and aims to ensure that the structure, content, language, style and presentation of the document are suitable for its intended purpose and readership. This service includes a detailed report. A structural edit does not address issues of spelling and grammar; these changes occur in a proofread or a copy edit.
Copy editing - Copy editing aims to achieve accuracy, clarity and consistency in a document. This level of editing takes your content and revises, rewords and corrects it to remove mistakes, errors of expression and inconsistencies which may confuse readers.
Proofreading - Proofreading is the process of correcting surface errors in writing, such as grammatical, spelling, punctuation and other language inaccuracies. It includes making sure that all elements of the document are included and in the proper order, all amendments have been inserted and the house or other set style has been followed.
Beta reading - Beta reading provides you with a reader's perspective on your final manuscript, helping you understand how a reader may receive your book and giving you an opportunity to address any issues before you publish. You will be provided with a fresh, objective review of your manuscript in a written report focussing on flow, characterisation, dialogue and potential plot holes. This is not an editing service.
Editing services - $65AU per hour
Beta reading - $2.50AU per 1,000 words (min fee $50)
These services often overlap to some degree. To discuss which service would be best suited to your project and budget, please contact me.
