Fiction: 470+ works edited and proofread

Line Edit, Copy Edit, Character Development Character Timeline Consistency Structure, Paragraph Hierarchy Substantive line editing Syntax Grammar Research and fact-checking Chapter or heading breaks Proofreading (only as part of a writing or editing project - I do not proofread general projects).

This is what I’ll do for your manuscript (MS)

1) You will receive a line edit: This looks at the work's organization and presentation. It involves tightening and clarifying at a chapter, scene, paragraph, and sentence level. Line editing deals with the actual prose: word choice, rhythm, syntax, and overall strength of each sentence. When doing a line edit, I look for flaws in the MS such as inconsistencies in timelines, history, facts, and so on.

2) You will receive a copy edit: Copy editing focuses on fixing editorial issues: spelling, grammar, tense, and punctuation.

3) You will receive proofreading: The goal of proofreading is to create consistency in style and technically accurate language, making sure that punctuation is being properly used so the rhythm and pacing of sentences are at their best, creating a polished work that is a smooth professional read.

    The best ever, all work completed as agreed, and on time. Lee goes above and beyond to complete her work. What I liked most was the ease of communication with her. Will use her again.

    Totally great hire. I hired E. Lee Caleca, to help a first time author complete a romantic drama novel. This required editing and ghost writing. All work was completed on time, communication was always great, work was concise and professional. We will rehire for additional jobs.

    Working with Lee was a joy. She was always clear with directions, timely with replies to questions and did an amazing job. Couldn't be happier and I highly recommend her work.
