Book Editing, Manuscript Editing, Book Reformatting
Manuscript Editing includes books of fiction and nonfiction, memoirs, textbooks, Biblical studies, and the like. A sample edit is done in order to give an accurate estimate and to determine the complexity of the project. Certain projects may entail more than one type of editing, or subsequent finalization to ensure all corrections are made, all inconsistencies are changed, and all meanings are obvious.
Each manuscript is proofread. If there are features like Contents, sidebars, footnotes, references, indexes, appropriate styles from CMOS, CWMOS and/or AP or APA are used to ensure all requirements are met and are consistent (e.g., for bullets, subtitles, paragraph spacing, etc.). Any prepublication issues are noted.
