What we have found is that many authors do not understand the various types of editors, so Ilisted below are the differences so you can decide on the best editing service you need.
Copy Line Editor - Copy editors or proof editors review and edits your manuscript to correct grammar and sentence structure. They have a keen eye for errors. They do not rewrite your manuscript, but rather correct your mistakes in punctuation, spelling, and grammar.
Line Editor - A line editor will do the job of a copy editor but will also make recommendations to improve the flow of ideas and to resolve inconsistencies. They see the big picture in a manuscript and determine whether the manuscript fits together in a logical way and will highlight and in some cases rewrite sentences or paragraphs.
Development Editor - Developmental editors work closely with the author to hash out characters, plots, and subplots so the book flows. They will often help the author to develop the arcs in the novel. Once you work with a development editor, you will still need a line or copy editor prior to publication.
Project Editor - A project editor works with an author from the beginning to the end to keep them on track. They often serve as both a developmental and proof-editor as well as help make decisions on book covers, trailers, and marketing tools all the way through publication in paperback and Ebook. Project editors are by far the most expensive.
Ebook Editor - An Ebook editor converts your manuscript into an Ebook format. To compete in today's market, you will need for your book to be in both paperback and Ebook. We have several experienced editors who can convert your manuscript into an Ebook. Book our services below.
Audible Editor/Producer - An Audible Editor produces your book into an audible book. This type of editor handles everything from finding the perfect voice to producing your audible book to get it market-ready. You will have to request a custom order to book this service because it all depends on the length of the book and the narrator you choose. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for your quote.
Note: When you use a copy or line editor, make sure they offer the service in Microsoft Word where you can track their changes, review them and either accept or reject the changes.

I know first-hand how imperative it is to have all the facts and an excellent support team when beginning publication. If I had not found Dr. Melissa Caudle, my novel The Mysteries of Woodland Academywouldn’t be published today. Dr. Caudle took me, a first-time author, and made my publishing dream a reality. I didn’t know the first thing about publishing, let alone publishing the right way. Along with Absolute Author Publishing House, she helped me become a better writer and author. Dr. Caudle held my hand throughout the process, and she treated my novel as if it was her very own. Dr. Caudle has the experience, expertise, wisdom to help all authors publish their books; she’s truly a whiz when it comes to the literary world. Not only is she amazing to work with, but she also has become a wonderful friend. I appreciate her, and I am sure we will work together again… she’s simply the best.”
