CONTENT EDITING WITH TRACKED CHANGES
(ALSO INCLUDES COPY EDITING/PROOFREADING)
Your elation is high. You finished the draft of your first novel. You’ve had several friends critique your manuscript, including one from your writing group. You think you are ready to publish your book, but since it is a first, the uncertainty lingers. Have your friends and fellow writers been too nice, afraid to call out your disconnects and continuity problems? Have they heaped praise on your character and plot development from a slanted perspective? Who you gonna’ call? Ardent Writer who can provide a professional scrub with BOTH content editing and copy editing (proofreading).
Content editing is a line by line edit
Content editing is a line by line edit of your draft manuscript. Content editing examines your characters, plot development, dialogue, and content. It suggests ways to trim extraneous content that adds little to the over-all plot in order to trim your word count. It addresses any content that conflicts with other content in your manuscript, citing the disconnects so that you can trim or add narrative fixes. If you have continuity issues, such as timeline inconsistencies or character inconsistencies, they are discribed as comments in our review. Any point-of-view issues are addressed.
Importantly, selecting content editing also results in a copy edit of punctuation, spelling and grammar.
The author receives a tracked changes document so that all content issues are viewed as side notes/comments. Suggested changes, including those from the copy edit, are red-lined.
BONUS – If a client needs to talk to the editor, phone discussions of the author’s manuscript can be arranged to go over any questions raised by the author over comments or suggested changes. These discussions are made with no increase in the quoted price!

OUR FEATURED SERVICES
Ardent Writer can provide start to finish publishing services for the authors who don’t want to be troubled with the work to move their manuscript through editing, proof-reading, formatting, cover design and submission to wholesalers. We can provide these services on either print or ebook versions! Nonetheless, if the author desires to do some of the work themselves, such as full editing, they can tailor the selected services to their needs.
Using Indesign publishing software, we can prepare a print-ready interior and cover for your use in self-publishing your book that will sparkle and have a professional look. Your input to the look of the interior will be taken before formatting starts.
If you need your book put into a ready-to-use eBook file, simply send your manuscript to AWP where our experienced staff can polish the document into the right format for use with self-publishing companies such as Kindle Direct Publishing or Ingramspark. We will include an epub or other eBook format as requested that will contain an embedded table of contents, allowing for easy search by any buyer. AWP can include images too!
Ardent Writer will work with you to advance a cover to your specifications. With a telephone discussion the author can propose elements for his personal treasure and even submit photos he has chosen for background images for his book. Pricing is dependent upon the complexity of the proposed cover design by the author.
Ardent Writer can submit your book to the wholesaler for you. We will fill out all forms, upload files, create metadata to enhance SEO, and talk to the wholesaler if necessary over any issues with publishing your book. Pricing is dependent on the range of support an author requires for his manuscript after a discussion with AWP.
