Editing

 

There is a funny way we have of referring to manuscripts here atPHCS… are you in your:

  • 1st trimester

  • 2nd trimester

  • 3rd trimester

Curious to know the signs and symptoms of each trimester? Download this easy guide here.​ We have editing packages to fit your every need!

In addition to checking for typographical errors, grammar and punctuation, our editors look at  at improving the flow, looking at consistency, transitions, redundancy, and word usage. Copy editing can be broken into different levels of editing: light, medium, and heavy.

  • Light – Checking spelling errors, grammar, punctuation, capitalization errors, some rewording or changing sentence structures to improve flow.

  • Medium – Includes everything in light editing, but also checks facts, such as scripture references, transitions from one section to another, checking for proper tense and tone throughout.

  • Heavy – Making more extensive changes in paragraphs, style, flow, and grammar.  May involve heavy rewriting of some sections to ensure clarity.

 

Proofreading

As your book is entering into the final stages and getting ready for a hard proof, (a sample book is ordered for you and for PHCS to ensure we have gotten everything right) we have our proofreader take a final look over the manuscript.   With fresh eyes (they have not seen the manuscript previously) your entire book is combed through one more time.
