We are excited to announce that Copperfield Press will once again be open to submissions of historical novels. Please see our Guidelines for more information.
Since 2000, readers around the world have come to know The Copperfield Review as a beloved literary journal of historical fiction. Created by the editors of The Copperfield Review, Copperfield Editing Services can help you with all your editing needs. We provide the following services:
Our copy editing includes checks for:
- Spelling, grammar, and punctuation mistakes
- Sentence structure
- Typographical errors
Our content editing includes checks for:
- Story development
- Word choice
- Narrative voice
- Showing vs. telling
- Dialogue issues
- Clarity of ideas and/or plot
- The “So what?” factor
Proofreading is the final stage of editing prior to publication where we check for any final adjustments in spelling, grammar, and sentence structure. We also check the line, paragraph, page, and chapter spacing as well as manuscript formatting issues.
A manuscript critique is where we evaluate your style and structure. If we are examining a work of fiction, we will evaluate dialogue, point of view, voice, plot, and pacing. If we are examining a work of nonfiction, we will make sure that your message is clear for your readers.
Our annotated critique of your manuscript will address areas where improvement may be needed, and we’ll give you guidance so you can make those changes.
Not sure how to turn your Word document into an ePub or mobi file? We can do that for you.
Do you need someone who understands what it means to be a writer and has your back? We’re here to help. With our team of experienced readers and writers, we’ll be able to help you get motivated, get prepared, and get going. We’ll give you the tools to help you feel confident in your role as a writer. We can be there to mentor you through all stages of the writing process, from brainstorming, organizing, prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing.
If you’re an independent author, we can help you. We have ten years of experience operating as independent publishers, and our novels become bestsellers with devoted fans around the world. We can help you through the confusing obstacles of becoming your own publisher so you’ll feel confident in your role as a creative business person.
At this time we’re editing the following types of manuscripts:
- writing and publishing
- scholarly articles and dissertations (APA, MLA, or Chicago Manual of Style)
