Some manuscripts simply require more work than others. When heavy copyediting is required, an editor will check the manuscript for more pervasive errors in spelling, grammar, and punctuation. The editor will also address syntax and word choice and make light recommendations for improving the overall readability of the work.
"I would like to thank the editor for a heroic job. My mother was apprehensive ... her book is intended to convey the thoughts of a child. The quirky language reflects this, and she was afraid the child's "voice" might be lost in the editing. I read the first few chapters of the edited manuscript to her. She was delighted! It is clear that this is a very conscientious editor and one to be trusted."
Virginia Merrill, author of Believe in Guardian Angels
