Copyediting improves readability. It helps ensure the reader is getting the message you intended to deliver because your writing is clear and accurate and is free from distracting things, such as repetitive words, changing verb tenses, or incorrect homophones. As your copyeditor, I’ll review your writing to ensure clarity, accuracy, consistency, and diction. I’ll look for proper sentence structure and conciseness as well as correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling. I’ll also make sure your writing flows well for readability. I’ll help you make your writing be what you really intended it to be.

Additionally, for fantasy and science fiction in particular, there’s a lot of world-building. My copyedits include tracking world elements for consistency and appropriateness.

Although small mistakes can seem unimportant, they can distract readers in a big way. You want your readers to remain engaged throughout the material and remember you for your story, not for your mistakes. I will bring a fresh perspective to your writing and be able to see things that you overlook.

Crystal is amazing to work with. I really enjoyed working with her and her editing style. She didn't seem to miss anything. I am excited to work with her further!
