  • Editing — for consistency, tone, voice, plot, characterisation, etc. Levels of editing include a full or developmental edit, and a copy-edit.
  • Proofreading — including reviewing spelling, punctuation, grammar, consistent font, and formatting.
  • Manuscript Advice — general advice and concise feedback on format, content and wording.

Developmental Editing

Full editing is the most comprehensive form of editing where the manuscript in its entirety is reviewed; the focus is on the novel as a whole, the bigger picture and the overall structure.

A full edit includes the consistency of voice, and ensuring that the language used, the style, presentation and content are all in line with the novel’s intended purpose and readership.

This includes things like plot, character, point of view, pace, writing style, narrative, and dialogue.


copy editor not only checks for grammatical errors, but also focuses on the continuity and consistency of the plot, the characters, and the language used. Are all loose ends tied up? The copyeditor’s job is not just to check grammar and spelling but is also about ensuring the elements of the story are consistent and cohesive.


When proofreading, the focus is on typographical errors. Proofreading requires a close-up look at the manuscript to spot even the smallest typographical and mechanical errors, such as spelling mistakes, (missing) commas, erroneous spaces, inconsistencies in margins, and more.

Proofreading is all about enhancing the quality of your book.

Manuscript Advice

Manuscript advice looks at the big picture: the overall structure, content, tone of voice, and style of your manuscript.

Caroline will provide you with an in-depth review of your writing to help you improve your manuscript. She will advise you on specific points to focus on — she will be the stepping stone for your work of fiction, non-fiction, or (academic) paper.

Writing Services

Caroline offers general advice, concise feedback, or comprehensive analysis on format, content and wording for documents/blurbs/submission papers.
