Polished Pages Editing
I would like to partner with you to bring your writing to life and make your project the best that it can be.
I am an experienced content editor, copy editor, and proofreader. I love the written word and spend most of my time reading, whether it is to edit or for pleasure. I will edit or proofread the manuscript you have slaved over, tweaking it and making it shine. You can expect quality service with a quick turnaround at a very competitive price.
Content Editing: I will search for discrepancies in the plot, character, or dialogue, check whether the theme has been developed properly, or whether the sub-plots have been well integrated into the story line. I will evaluate the content, and if there is the need, suggests changes to the writer. A second round for copy editing is included with this option. In the second round, I will edit for plot, dialogue, characterization, consistency, clarity, and continuity. I may also suggest reorganization of paragraphs and sentences and make suggestions for the rewriting of segments, as well as word choice, flow, style, and voice. I will fact-check as needed and discuss with you any questions and concerns I have.
Copy Editing: I will check for grammar, punctuation, spelling, consistency, clarity, flow, and word usage (Is he your Principle or your Principal?) I will check to see if you have dropped words in your typing, if your sentence structures are overly complicated or if your paragraphs are too long. Since most readers prefer reading at the fourth to seventh-grade reading level, I can advise you on how to make your writing easier to read for the majority of readers.
Proofreading: I will proof your project for spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, grammar, and general readability.
Formatting: Do you need your manuscript converted into Epub, Mobi and/or PDF formats? I will convert to all three for one low price. I will also format your book for print, if you choose, for an additional fee.

“I contacted Toni about editing my book Blood Bond. She did an amazing job. She left “my voice” in the book while still correcting grammar issues. She had great rates and is very easy to work with. After the amazing job she did on the first book, I had her reedited my previous works. She is fast and reliable. I love how honest she is. I need someone to tell me when a part is not good and she does that, but with class. I love the little notes she leaves me in my edits. As long as she edits she will be doing my books, whether she likes it or not.” ~ Tiffany Flowers“I love the notes and the edits were top notch. You have an incredible eye for detail and one hell of mind for comprehension. Now I’m going to insist on using you for most of my manuscripts. Be warned. Thanks so much for the incredibly fast, top notch work. You’re aces!” ~ Christian Jensen
