Why makes line editing an unmissable step?

Line editing takes care of vital issues like sentence flow, structure of paragraphs, choice of words, overall story presentation, and consistency of tone. Unlike a developmental editor who will primarily focus on your manuscript’s content, a line editor takes care of punctuation, spelling, grammar, structural cogence, etc.

Line editing versus copyediting

Although line editing encompasses edits for grammar issues, misspelled words, and common errors, line editors may incorporate changes which need revisions, which often end up introducing new typos. It is for this reason that several rounds of editing are a strongly recommended process.

Making the preparations

Before submitting your work for detailed line editing, you may want to be sure that you’re reasonably satisfied with your book’s overall flow, plot, and pacing. This is because line editing is best at polishing a sentence structure that’s already robust. If you’re convinced that your work needs a complete rework in terms of the aforementioned points, you may want to opt for developmental edit so that you can clearly identify areas requiring new content.

Frequently Asked Questions

Usually, they are expected to leave suggestions/recommendations/corrections that enhance the overall flow of your work besides spotting story-line inconsistencies, suggest ways of enhancing the plot, eradicating continuity errors, and ensuring the story is being written exactly how you want it to shape up. In addition to doing all this, our line editors outline elaborate editorial letters expounding common edits and offering practical ways of strengthening your manuscript. These letters help you better understand your strengths and weaknesses as a writer, which goes a long way in establishing your credibility as an author.
We typically use MS Word’s Track Changes feature to leave suggestions, comments, and recommendations in your manuscript. Thus, you may want to send us your manuscript in a Word format. Although we do not rule out using PDF files, it’s not very east to offer the in-depth editorial feedback that will transform the quality of your manuscript when working with PDF files.
Not necessarily. Line editors realize the need to maintaining the unique voice of a writer and identify ways of supporting his/her personal style throughout the manuscript – be it languid/detailed sentences or maintaining succinctness. A line edit basically ensures your book becomes everything you expect it to become.
Some editors choose to charge based on the hours they put in while working on a manuscript, which basically means you don’t get the complete picture about how much the editing process will cost till it is over. At TrueEditors, we charge by the word because this allows you to know exactly what your project costs before we begin the work. Our rates can vary based on the intensiveness of the editing process and the time an editor will need to put in while working on the project. Therefore, a copyedit costs less than a line edit, which, in turn, costs less than a development edit.
Multiple rounds of editing are a highly recommended process that helps ensure that the manuscript is as well-written and grammatically perfect as possible to. Believe it or not, the majority of published books are edited 7-9 times before being published, which is why we offer some special editorial packages whereby we cover multiple editing rounds at a significant discount.
