What Services Do You Need?

As I state in my article on the production process, there are several levels of editing. I recommend three passes if your production schedule and budget allow, but you may opt for one or two stages. Another factor is you may have had work done on your project by another editor and are wondering how to dovetail my services into your existing work in progress. Below, I’ve included a chart that lists what each level of editing entails and also included some screenshots of a project that includes all three phases.
