Here are the editorial services that we offer:

Writing – creating new text on the basis of content and research derived by the writer and/or author.
Developmental Editing – coordinating the writing process from book proposal to manuscript completion. These editors oversee a literary project, establishing priorities and goals, as well as offering suggestions about everything from titles to page count. They edit a manuscript for adherence to a writer’s overall objective and intent. In the final stages, developmental editors may incorporate input from reviewers and consultants.
Substantive/Structural Editing making initial changes and suggestions to refine a manuscript’s scope or enhance story elements (plot, characters and setting) for better unity, cohesion and support of ideas. For example, this may mean adding/removing characters in fiction works and adding/removing concepts in non-fiction. Acting somewhat as writing coaches, these editors help to develop the content itself, which may require them to rewrite portions of a manuscript. This process occurs before copy editing.
Copy Editing – ensuring the consistency or correctness of grammar, usage, spelling, punctuation and mechanics; and editing tables, figures, and lists.
Proofreading – checking proofs of formatted, edited material for adherence to style specifications or standards; ensuring that corrections have been made; and identifying minor mechanical errors in copy, such as spelling and punctuation mistakes.
Rewriting – recreating text on the basis of content and research supplied by the author.
Fact Checking/Citation Checking/Reference Checking – verifying the accuracy of facts and quotes by checking original sources
Indexing –  reading and analyzing a work to create a systematic guide to the information contained in the work, consisting of headings and subheadings and their locators (page numbers),  arranged alphabetically or in some other searchable order
