RELEASE THE BEST BOOK POSSIBLE

Regardless of how many times you’ve read through your manuscript, errors will happen where your brain has begun to auto-correct for you, but your readers will find them right away. That’s where L&L Literary Services come in. Whatever stage your book is currently at, we have an editing service to fit your needs, from developmental, to line, to proofreading. 

SAMPLE EDIT

We will sample edit 2,000 words of your choosing to see if we are a good fit for you. If you would like a longer sample edit, we will edit up to 8,000 words for a $50 fee. If you decide to go with us, that $50 will go toward your final price.

OUR SERVICES

development edits

So you've finished your first draft and are concerned about the story as a whole. Here's where Developmental edits come in.

Developmental edits look at the structure of your book. Things we look for:

Does your manuscript have focus?

Does the story meander and have the potential to lose readers in the middle?

Does the tone of your book stay consistent?

Do your characters and world have depth and make sense?

Does it fit the audience you’re writing for?

 

In Developmental Edits, we look at all of these issues and make sure your story is strong before you dive into further rounds of edits.

LINE EDITS

In Line Edits, we look at the structure of paragraphs and sentences, as well as word choice, working to make sure your sentences and words are varied to avoid sounding repetitious and ensuring your paragraphs break at the right time.

CONTENT EDITS

Your manuscript has been through Development and Line edits and now just needs a run through to make sure you've stayed consistent. We'll look for hair and eye color changes, scenery layout changes, injuries suddenly vanish that your characters sustained in a fight, and other such inconsistencies.
