Copy Editing

Copy Editors don’t go quite as deep as substantive editors; they are reading your book from a more technical perspective. A copy editor is looking at consistency, syntax, spelling, grammar, and punctuation. It should always follow a substantive edit. It will include suggestions for rephrasing of awkward sentences for a smoother flow and correction of grammar and punctuation errors.
