Once you have a fully developed novel, line-editing is your next port of call. It’s the process of looking at your manuscript on a sentence level, addressing style, description, accuracy and consistency, as well as an initial check for grammar, spelling, and presentation.
It can involve editing the use of long sentences or the passive voice, or even correcting plot-holes. Bear in mind, this isn’t a proofread. Proofreading is the final step of the editorial process, after which no further edits are made.
Line-editing is a great choice for those serious about self-publishing and who feel very confident in their draft or have already been edited by someone else. If you're considering this kind of editing, please get in touch so we can discuss whether this is the right option for you to meet your goals.
