“As a creative soul, I knew what I wanted to write about, but organizing my thoughts and understanding what was needed to make a great book was beyond me. Then I started working with a BPP writing coach. I was given a step-by-step writing process, and loads of support and understanding. I’m so glad I found BPP.” 

–Maria Perez-Gomez, author of The Magical Closet Mystery

EDITING

Before approaching a prospective publisher or sending your material to be formatted for self-publishing, your manuscript deserves to be raised to a level equal to the time and passion you have invested in its writing.

Skipping or skimping on editorial services will be immediately noticed by experienced publishing professionals. Today's readers are savyy and quick to distinguish a book that lacks sufficient editing. Our services focus on the editing process, taking you from start to finish. 
 

Three Levels of Manuscript Evaluation and Editing

 

​1. Structure/ Developmental Editing

A savvy author knows the importance of creating a solid structural foundation before pouring your inner soul onto the page. Developmental editing is essentially "pre-writing," focusing on concept creation and design. We review your ideas and then meet with you to collaborate in the idea-design phase of writing. 

This is the time to identify your audience, select your genre, and clarify what you want to say. An experienced structural editor will save you valuable time so that your creative energy is laser-focused on the highest quality and efficient productivity. 

Well-versed in creating various book structures, our developmental editors help you build a format that matches your message. You will anticipate and eliminate fundamental structural errors, often resulting in repetition or intuitive leaps that can bore or bewilder your readers. Start it well for a smoother process and higher quality end product.
 

2. Writing / Copy Editing
The next phase of creating your book is putting flesh on the bones, or words into the structure. As you write your manuscript, having an editor review and help you revise is helpful. 

 

  • ​The tone of writing in your manuscript establishes the relationship between you and your reader. Few things are more important than engaging your readers. 

  • We recommend revisions to ensure that the entire manuscript is written in the consistent voice of the author. 

  • Vocabulary and sentence structure are carefully evaluated, and the level of readability is tested so that your writing matches the reading level of your chosen audience. 

  • Copyeditors verify factual statements and correct any errors that might have slipped by.

  • We assess the strength of the story arc in fiction and memoirs and the story illustrations used in nonfiction books.  

3. Polishing / Proofreading

A polished manuscript is in the details that only an experienced proofreader can provide. 

  • Our editors will check for correct spelling and grammar and keep capitalization, hyphenation, and syntax consistent. 

  • Every element of the manuscript is evaluated, including footnotes, citations, and quotations.

  • The entire manuscript receives a final readthrough, checking all headings for consistency and accuracy. 

  • Our editors follow the guidelines presented in the Chicago Manual of Style.
