I call myself a stylistic editor because, from what my clients tell me, I don't really fit a mold. I check for grammatical and spelling errors, but also smooth out your words to make them more "readable" all while watching for plot holes. While making your words better, I make sure to keep your style.
I'm a firm believer that it is not so important for your book to be perfect in a grammatical way. What I believe is important is that your book be perfect in your way, in your voice, in your style. Each writer is an individual and, like individuals, each has their own style. Look at Dr. Seuss. He certainly was not grammatically correct and yet, you knew his style within the first sentence. How about Stephen King? His style is unlike any other. I will not lump you in with others. I want your style to shine and I'm not afraid to break a few rules to see that it does!
I make edits in MS Word using Track Changes. When I am done with the first edits, I email the manuscript back to you for you to accept/reject each suggestion. It then gets emailed to me to do a second pass through to check for anything we may have missed.
I, too, am a writer so I know the importance of having a good relationship with your editor. I will work with you to accommodate any special needs you have whenever possible.
In order to serve you the best I can, I will be taking a limited number of projects each month.
