Eagle Eye Edits & Critiques

The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug. ~ Mark Twain

Atticus told me to delete the adjectives, and I’d have the facts. ~ Harper Lee (author, “To Kill a Mockingbird”)

Copy Editing

THE ORIGINAL PERFECTIONISTS! We will copy edit any text, including books, short stories, articles & essays, business reports & correspondence, legal documents, advertising copy, website material, etc. We do not rewrite or spin content. We will correct paragraphing, sentence structure, grammar, spelling, and punctuation. In the case of books, this service is typically done following a content edit, when the work is ready for submission to publishers.

Content Editing

We will address issues of pacing and flow, narrative and dialogue, characterization, point of view, and continuity. You must be willing to accept constructive criticism in the spirit in which it is given–to help you. You will receive comments and suggestions for revision in the margins and a critique of your strengths and weaknesses. We don’t do the revisions or rewriting. That’s the author’s job. This service is meant for books and short stories (fiction and non-fiction). It does not include copy editing.

Content & Copy Edit Combo

You will receive all the services stated above for content and copy editing, a bundled deal.

Each project is evaluated initially, and you will receive a FREE customized quote.

Contact the author or her representatives at eagleshadow2003 at yahoo dot com to see which service is a good fit for your project, receive your free quote, and for current turnaround times. Most small projects (not book-length) can be completed within three business days. Large projects may require you to be put on a wait list.

So for book-length projects ordering the combo (recommended), here’s the process in a nutshell:

1) Send 1000-2000 words of your book. Within two business days, you will receive your free quote with no obligation.

2) If you are pleased with the quote, send payment and the entire project itself (in a Word document) if you have not already. Eagle Eye will put you on the schedule and inform you of when you can expect the project back with suggestions for revisions, and corrections shown in track changes in Word.

If you’ve had something published which Eagle Eye edited, we MAY consider promoting your project with a blog post upon its release. Contact us for details.

Client Testimonials

**Shelly is awesome. I compiled a 500+ page book through typing and scanning, then tried to take on the task of editing. I knew there were many needed corrections. I have dyslexia and was completely overwhelmed by the task and knew I wouldn’t be able to find them all. She took it and in a week had it completed. She was very thorough and even found many corrections I would have never noticed. I will definitely use her again. ~ Carlos Packard, best-selling Amazon publisher**

And from many other satisfied customers from every continent (except Antarctica, but we’re here for you, Antarctica!):
