The Fly-Through

The Fly-Through editing service

You want me to catch any stop-the-presses errors.
When you need quality quickly

Choose this service for projects you need out the door ASAP. I’ll just be looking for mistakes; if it isn’t absolutely wrong, I’ll leave it alone. This service is best for very well-written or previously reviewed manuscripts—writing where you feel confident about big-picture issues and are just looking to polish the finished product.


  • all egregious errors
  • spelling, punctuation, grammar, and mechanics
  • clarity
  • consistency
  • issues at the sentence and word level
  • spacing and other typesetting-related issues, if applicable
  • typographic, layout, and design elements, if applicable

As a courtesy, if I come across any major issues beyond the scope of this edit that I believe should still be considered, I’ll flag them.

As with all my services, The Fly-Through includes follow-up support for any questions you may have after the edit.

At the end of The Fly-Through, you’ll have a clean file you can print, post, or otherwise share without embarrassment.

Yes! That's what I want.

This service is good as a quick quality-control check right before sharing. If you have more time and want a full-blown proofread, check out The Whole Shebang.
