When editing, I find it hard not to give each author the full package, whether they choose it or not. No matter which package you choose (below), I will provide my full attention to detail. I look at spelling, grammar, and punctuation of course, but I will also tell you things I might change and comment on issues regarding plausibility and plot holes, voice, flow, pacing, story elements, and anything that comes to mind when reading your work.
I edit from the perspective of an agent looking for a submission to choose, as a publishing house editor who wants to polish your book before publication, and finally, as a published author who has learned what people are buying.

Don’t know the difference between each package? Look below:
Proofreading = looking deep for typos, formatting issues, spelling errors–basically a comprehensive polishing before you query or self-publish
Copy or Line editing = grammatical mistakes, language mechanics, punctuation, awkward phrasing, technical language, comments on quality and voice–kind of a third or fourth draft edit
Content editing or MS Revision = a look over the “story” as a whole, plot consistency, considers audience appropriateness, makes sure content is high-quality and engaging, and looks at overall effectiveness of writing, check for inaccuracies, looks for smooth transitions, readability/flow, advice on how to strengthen your story—kind of a second draft edit
Developmental editing = feedback on writing and storytelling craft, comments on plot elements/holes, eliminating infodumps, story essentials, storytelling voice and voice overall, character descriptions, setting, and the trajectory of your plot. I will ask bigger questions about character changes, weaving the theme, use of imagery, how to form the first chapter to attract agents—kind of a beginner’s edit, or first draft edit
Query consultation = I will look at your query as an agent who is receiving it from the slush pile. I will show you where/how to grip the agent with your summary, how to write/format your synopsis, and I will give deep feedback on your sample writing.
