DartFrog’s proofreading service is affordable, fast, and of the highest quality. We comb through completed manuscripts for “surface errors” such as misspellings, typos, repeated words, and incorrect punctuation. This should be the final review of a manuscript once all writing is complete.

Line edits delve deeper than a proofread, focusing on grammatical issues, sentence construction, syntax, and more. A line edit is recommended when a manuscript has deeper structural issues than a proofread addresses, and should be followed by a proofread.

DartFrog’s developmental editing deals with a story’s infrastructure and is best described as book doctoring, because we don’t provide notes on how the story should be tweaked, we actually do the rewriting/tweaking for you. This level of editing usually focuses most heavily on improving show-don’t-tell, pacing, and character development. We provide drafts throughout the revisioning process to be sure our changes are inline with the author’s expectations. A final proofread is included as part of our developmental editing package.
