Message From the Editor
Thank you for reaching out to us for copy editing! Oren told me he’s already worked with you on this story, so I’m eager to see what you’ve come up with. I found your Pinterest board, too, and it definitely struck my curiosity.
From the sample you sent me and the first chapter that’s available on your Tumblr, it looks like we’ll have quite a bit of work to do along the lines of standardizing punctuation and adding clarity within the narration. It should all fit within the scope of the medium edit you’ve requested; I only mention it here because I don’t want it to be a surprise for you when you open the tracked document and see so many changes. Let me know if there are any grammatical conventions you’re particularly fond of breaking – we can always add exceptions to standard style rules as long as it’s consistent throughout the manuscript.
The earliest opening in my calendar for a project of this size to begin is March 18. My apologies for the long lead time there! If you were hoping to have it edited before then, I can recommend some fantastic copy editors who might have earlier availability. Further details about our timeline for working together are provided below.
Let me know if you have any questions or concerns about the process. Looking forward to working on this unique story!
