The Editing Stages

  1. Substantive Edit – Substantive editors do it all because they are the heavy lifters in the world of book editing. These editors do everything a copyeditor and proofreader does and more. At the start of the process, your manuscript is reviewed to get an idea about whether or not the content is a coherent whole. Next, comes an analysis of the structure and style. When every aspect of your manuscript has been checked the editor would have made changes to correct grammar, spelling and other errors too.
  2. Copyediting – This stage is all about the details. In every sentence, paragraph, page and chapter you’ve written, copyeditors look for inconsistencies in your writing. They gage believability, find spelling, syntax, grammar or punctuation errors.
  3. Proofread – When the major editing work is completed, your manuscript needs a quality check. More than anything, proofreaders ensures your book is ready for publication.
