At Emerging Ink Solutions, clients receive personalized, one-on-one service and communication from the editor. An explanation of the various levels of editing and formatting offered can be found below.
The goal of Emerging Ink is to help you create a well-constructed, beautiful piece of work. Whether it's a simple outline, an essay written in the early hours of the morning, or the final draft of your manuscript, Emerging Ink Solutions is there for you!
Proofreading: This is the most common editorial service and focuses on grammar, typos, spelling, and punctuation.
Copyediting: Provides you with overall insight into your work. Your editor will offer suggestions and advice on content, structure, and style. Basic grammar, spelling, and punctuation proofreading is included.
Developmental Editing: Sometimes clients have a great idea or book concept with a few pages of rough ideas, but need professional assistance with fleshing their ideas out. This is where Emerging Ink Solutions comes in. Need help further developing a character's personality? Do you have all the facts but just don't know where to start on your non-fiction novel? Need help deepening the plot of your YA novel? Developmental editing services can help you.
Substantive Editing: Is English your second language? Perhaps you've spoken it most your life but just aren't great at narration, word choice, or paragraph structure. Substantive Editing focuses on content, organization, and presentation of the text as a whole. Allow Emerging Ink Solutions to shape your manuscript and give it purpose!
Emerging Ink Solutions provides the following basic formatting services for all manuscripts. These include:
A Note to Authors/Writers: The format adjustments on manuscripts made by Emerging Ink Solutions are based on the commonly-accepted rules of formatting for books. Because publishers have certain formatting requirements for manuscripts dependent upon preference, the adjustments might not be applicable. The editor will be in constant contact with the client.
Not sure you're ready for an editor? Why not explore our Manuscript Appraisal service?
For a fee, we will read/review your manuscript and create a report detailing the work's strengths and, more importantly, its weaknesses, as well as our advice and suggestions. A Manuscript Appraisal focuses not only on the syntactic technicalities and grammar of the book, but on the manuscript's plot and character shortcomings.
Just want to know if you're heading in the right direction? Ask about our Quick Critique service. Submit up to 10,000 words of your book to Emerging Ink Solutions to receive a detailed report analyzing your grammar, technical writing ability, and creative voice. Allow us to make gentle suggestions on how to better your work to create a book that properly conveys your vision!
