Questions About Substantive Editors from a Complete Noob
First of all, I want to thank you for the wonderful help your website has been. I have been writing as a casual hobby for a few years, but I decided I wanted to take the next step and learn how to publish a book. I have just started my research, and I decided my first step would be to learn about editors. I have a few questions for you:
Do your substantive edits include editing grammar, punctuation, etc.?
Do the average editor's substantive edits include them?
Do your substantive edits involve polishing the manuscript until it is "finished," or only one edit?
I am terribly sorry if you already answered these questions on your website. I am simply curious, and I wanted to ask an editor directly instead of searching the internet.
