S & L Editing, Two Editors for the Price of One

You may have seen the terms “content editor,” “copyeditor,” and “line editor” out there when looking for someone to polish your manuscript. In today’s day and age, your editor must be capable of doing all three: pointing out plot holes, inconsistent character voices, and continuity errors, and suggesting fixes; smoothing out language, ensuring subject and verb agreement, verb tense consistency, and recommending opportunities to clarify and restructure; and proofreading duties, including fixing typos, grammar, and punctuation, researching historical data (i.e., ensuring the museum Character A visits in Boston really is in Boston, and is spelled correctly), and fixing formatting and typography errors. Paying a content specialist to do one job, then paying a proofreader to do a second, can get costly and confusing. S & L Editing offers the solution to this problem.

Stacey Longo and Rob Smales work as a team, thoroughly vetting your manuscript, providing content, copy, and formatting suggestions. They offer two services: full editing, for writers who need a more comprehensive review their manuscript, and proofreading only, for those who are comfortable with the content of their work, and just need help with grammar, typography, formatting, and spelling. (Rates for these services can be found at http://balzertown.com/slediting/rates/.)

“We’re offering two experienced professionals for the price of one,” Longo said.

They do provide free, no-obligation quotes on any project. S & L Editing’s services are available for any writing project.

“We’ve revised novels, term papers, resumes, PowerPoint presentations, short stories, advertising campaigns . . . you name it, we’ve done it,” Longo said.

They’ve worked with and for publishers large and small, Fortune 500 companies, individual authors, and students. Their past client list includes Pearson Education, MetLife, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Wargoat Press, and many self-published authors, and they serve as the exclusive editors for Books & Boos Press and The Storyside Press.

“Given the diversity of our clients, we’re well-versed in several different style guides, including The Chicago Manual of Style, the AP Stylebook, APA, and MLA formatting. We can also advise you on which style guide is best suited for your project,” Longo said.

What to Expect

Once you’ve reached out to S & L Editing, they’ll provide you with a quote for the full project and an estimate of when it will be completed. (“We have a 100% success rate on meeting that target date,” Longo adds.) Either Longo or Smales will take the lead on the project, running through the first edits, with the other following up behind them, reviewing the revised copy and providing a second set of eyes.

“If questions arise as we’re going over the material, we’ll e-mail you,” Smales said. “And if you have questions about our progress, we’re happy to keep you updated.”

When the job is complete, the client receives two files: one showing the tracked changes of every single suggestion and comment made, and one with the proofreading changes accepted to provide a clean manuscript, but with the comments on content still intact.

“We’re also available for follow-up questions after you’ve reviewed the material,” Smales said.

Whether you have a novel, college admissions essay, work presentation, or poetry collection, S & L Editing will polish your manuscript and help you submit the best work possible. Don’t put off this vital step any longer: contact S & L Editing at www.slediting.com today for more information!
