Copy Editing Services

Copy Editing

Andrea Renee Cox copy edits manuscripts and final copies of novels, checking for typos, grammatical errors, inconsistencies, echoed words or phrases (including "pet words"), and formatting variances. She also checks facts along the way, making sure truth meets fiction in a seamless way.

Projects will be edited in order of receipt of payment and copy of manuscript or novel, unless otherwise scheduled. Microsoft Word documents (saved in .doc or .docx formats) accepted at this time. Please make sure your document is double-spaced, in 12-point Times New Roman font, and that each chapter begins on a new page (using the page-break function). Only English language copies accepted at this time. The amount to be paid is determined by how many pages are within the Microsoft Word document sent to be copy edited. All payments must be made via mailed check, unless other arrangements are agreed upon prior to the beginning of the project. See pricing options below.

Andrea will use the track changes function to reveal the errors she finds, and she will attach a copy of the new file to an email sent to your preferred email address by the agreed due date.

Contact Andrea at for current scheduling availability, payment information, or if you have a question about her services. Please put "Copy Editing Services" in the subject line.

Once terms are agreed to and Andrea knows how many pages she will be copy editing for you, she will send you an invoice for the payment, to be sent immediately upon receipt of invoice. If payment is not received by the time she finishes her work, she will withhold the edited manuscript until payment is received in full, unless other arrangements are agreed upon prior to her taking the job.

Manuscripts containing coarse language, graphic violence, sexual content, or other inappropriate content are NOT accepted.

As part of every agreement, Andrea requires a copyright page credit (example: Copy Editor: Andrea Cox) as well as a paperback copy of the completed book once it's published.


Thank you and may God bless your day.

"I had the pleasure of working with Andrea for the first novel in my historical family saga series, and it was a truly enlightening experience. She fixed all my messy punctuation, found pet words, picked apart inconsistencies, and went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure my book was the best it could be. Her dedication and promptness were impressive. I'm definitely look forward to having her edit my stories in the future!"
Kellyn Roth
Author of The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy series and the Kees & Colliers series

"I hired Andrea Renee Cox to do final edits on three of my books. These books had already been published and won or finaled in awards, but Andrea took her role seriously as I rerelease these books. She contacted the Nebraska Historical Society to confirm historical details she couldn’t find on her own. Her notes were filled with information and encouragement, and her efforts made my stories stronger. I look forward to working with her in the future."
Cara Putman
Award-winning author of Shadowed by Grace, the Cornhusker Dreams series, and the Hidden Justice series

"Working with Miss Cox is a genuine pleasure.  A skilled editor that always preserves my unique writing voice, while helping me strengthen my writing skills.  Andrea has patiently helped me polish my novellas until they shine.  I would work with Andrea again and again, and I highly recommend her services!"
Allison Tebo
Award-winning author of the Tales of Ambia series

"Andrea Cox's copy editing caught mistakes that other readers missed. She has a great eye for detail, even remembering that an acronym was used inconsistently hundreds of pages apart, and is incredibly thorough and quick. We hope to use her for future Ashberry Lane edits as we were very impressed."

"We are grateful for Andrea Cox’s proofreading service. Her fast turnaround and attention to detail revealed several changes and kept our book on track. I highly recommend her."

"Thank you, Andrea Cox. You are tough, but your hard work made my book better."
Bonnie Leon
Author of the Northern Lights series and To Dance with Dolphins

"What a pleasure it was to work with Andrea Cox! Knowing that she was going to be proofing my manuscript gave me such peace of mind. I had anticipated her to look for any typos, misspells, or glaring errors, yet Andrea went above and beyond all of my expectations. She pulled out errors—many that I was stunned to have missed and others that I never would have found myself. To top it all off, she was kind, professional, and concise. Working with Andrea was a blessing through and through, and I would wholeheartedly do it again!"
Joanne Bischof
Award-winning author of the Cadence of Grace series

"When I asked Andrea to look at my work, I was not expecting her to thoroughly engage herself in my story. Her ideas and suggestions made me push myself harder, and I rewrote several key scenes as per her thoughts, which made the scenes far better than I had originally written them. Andrea's thoughts made my work better. And I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to make their work sing!"
