REPORT AND STYLE SHEET
This is a copy of a editorial report and style sheet that I created for one of my authors. The project was 68,000-word action thriller. The author understood that I'm a sentence-level editor, and that all developmental work should have been carried out beforehand.
He'd had positive and detailed feedback from the agent Darley Anderson, and made some structural changes in response to that. Nevertheless, the book needed substantive line editing and copyediting, and I also found some issues that I believe a solid developmental edit would have addressed. Still, he elected to work with me.
He's a lovely guy and we have an excellent working relationship (which I mention so that you can put the tone of the report in context). The author kindly agreed to my sharing this as an example.
