For many authors, self-editing can be a challenge. When you are so close to your work, it can be difficult to step back and see it objectively. As an author, you may be more focused on improving the story, characters, plot and your writing style, rather than spotting small textual errors. 

A professional editor is trained to pick up errors and inconsistencies of many different types (spelling, punctuation, grammar, plot holes, character development flaws, awkward dialogue, and so on) so they are able to pick up those mistakes that commonly go unnoticed.

Our editors use the Track Changes function in Microsoft Word, which marks all changes that have been made to the original document. This allows you to visually see the changes and accept or reject them at your preference.
