2nd Draft Line Edit Service (price per page)
You'll Love This 2nd Draft Critique Service If:
- You have 50 pages of a manuscript ready for review
- You're looking for a professional line editing service before you query an agent or editor
- Your manuscript needs to be reviewed for style, word usage, consistency, grammar and clarity
Is your manuscript ready to be read by an agent or editor?
With this 2nd Draft service, a professional editor will comb through every line of your manuscript, looking for style issues, grammatical errors, storytelling inconsistencies, misspellings, and more. They'll help to smooth out poorly worded sentences or point out where you need to clarify things for the reader. The 2nd Draft Line Editing Service does that and more!
Upon receiving your manuscript, a professional editor will go through the work line-by-line, providing insights into where improvements need to be made at the most granular level. You'll receive suggestions that will strengthen the consistency of your work, improve its pacing and overall readability.
Though a line editor doesn't provide the 50,000 foot view analysis of a developmental editor, they provide far more insights and information about the details than either a developmental editor or a proofreader. Proofreaders are mainly looking for spelling and grammatical errors.
Ensure your manuscript is error-free, and ready to be read by an agent or editor at any time. Send your work to 2nd Draft Line Editing Service and have your work proofread by a professional today!
