Line Editing Details
A professional editor will use The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition, the preferred style guide in the book publishing industry, and the Merriam-Webster dictionary while editing your manuscript.

The editor will review your manuscript using the Microsoft Word Track Changes feature and provide recommendations on elements such as:

  • Structure
  • Plot flow
  • Characterization
  • Tone

The editor will also review for consistency in:

  • Grammar
  • Spelling
  • Punctuation

In addition, an editor will provide an Editorial Letter explaining the suggested changes made in the manuscript.

How It Works

Important: Please submit your completed manuscript, including all front and back matter.

You’ll work with the Writers Block Productions team, who will guide you through the editing process. Our team is a liaison between you and a professional editor, pairing your manuscript with an appropriate editor, and answering any questions you may have throughout the editing process. Here’s how the process works:

  • Upload your manuscript in Microsoft Word or (PDF) through your account.
  • For each round, complete a questionnaire for the editor noting any stylistic preferences and/or areas of focus within your manuscript.
  • After each round of editing, use Microsoft Word to accept or reject individual track changes and choose whether to incorporate the editor’s suggestions into your final manuscript.

The information below shows the turnaround time for each round of editing.
