Copy Editing

Copy Editing

We identify and fix spelling and grammar errors, tone and style inconsistencies, and awkward syntax while maintaining your author voice.

Is this service right for you?

You've got all the hard work done. Your story's on point, but now you need a fresh pair of eyes to make sure your sentences flow, your dialogue isn't yawn-worthy, and your overall vocab matches the genre. Plus taking out those dialogue tags, filtering words, repetitions... Yikes! Our copy edit package includes all that and more, delivered with in-text edits/tracked changes/comments (if warranted) in the manuscript.

What authors say about us

“Thoroughness and attention to detail”

“Luna Imprints Author Services has built a great reputation with me by protecting my reputation with my readers. Alexa not only catches errors, omissions, redundancies, and duplications in the book she is currently proofreading, but she also crosschecked the latest one against its prequel and made sure that consistency was maintained across the series. In a side discussion we were having about scheduling, she made it clear that she places quality at the top of her priority queue. Me too. That’s why Alexa is the proofreader for the Alcubierre Metric Connection novels.”

Frank Merceret

Author of the Alcubierre Metric Connection hard sci-fi series
