I will introduce you to the company’s website which will be assisting you with your project.
I will provide you with a few suggestions on marketing strategies with which I am familiar
Copy Editing: Editing for grammar, usage, spelling, punctuation, and other mechanics of style; checking for consistency; clarifying meaning, eliminating jargon, polishing language.
Fact Checking/Citation Checking/Reference Checking: Editor will check for accuracy of Bible references and will make sure any links cited are available, but will not check the accuracy of the facts listed in the manuscript
Proofreading: Checking proofs of formatted, edited material for adherence to design and for minor, mechanical errors in copy (such as spelling mistakes or small deviations from style sheet).
Edit-ready: This is the author's final draft that has been cleaned up as much as possible. The draft should have been already been read by one or two trusted people who can offer feedback and help catch some errors. The edit-ready copy should be the treated as if it were being sent to a top publishing company. This saves your editor time and, in the long run, saves you money.
