Manuscript Prep

I edit using MS Word and utilize Track Changes, inline edits, and comment boxes.

To make the process easy on both of us, please send me your doc or docx file formatted like this:

  • Body of the text – Times New Roman font, 12 pt.
  • 1.5 inch line spacing
  • No cushion between paragraphs
  • Left aligned or justified.
  • No tabs or double returns between paragraphs. Use the first line indent feature in Word.
  • Use Curly Quotes. If your document has straight quotes in it, do an Advanced Find and Replace in Word using Wild Cards to seek out and replace those straight quotes.
  • Remove double spaces between sentences and stray spaces before hard returns.
  • Please include the document title and page number in the header or footer.
