Choosing an editor, specifically a copy editor—someone who knows the ins and outs of not only grammar but also the world of books and publishing—is your first step in this process. You may not know this yet, but copy editors work closely with you to make sure your manuscript reaches heights you knew were possible. That’s the second part of this process: collaboration. By choosing me, you are choosing someone who cares about maintaining the integrity of your writing. When we begin to work together, I will ask you specific questions about your manuscript, so I can create a set of guidelines we follow, so we make your baby soar.
