I offer copy editing for drafts that have been developmentally edited and are in need of a more mechanical/style cleanup. The focus here will be on ensuring your content adheres to a style guide, whether that's your own or a standard one. With copy editing, I will also:
check for proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation
ensure voice, tone, and style remain consistent throughout
improve word choice to add the perfect amount of "oomph" to sentences
fact-check names, places, dates, and other facts
provide guidance on citations and permissions
Along with an edited manuscript, you'll receive a personalized style sheet that details the main style and grammar rules I follow (in accordance with the latest edition of the Chicago Manual of Style) as well as a comprehensive list of manuscript-specific terms with their proper spelling and capitalization.
