Copyediting vs. Editing - Taylor Stevens Tells Us the Difference

Have you ever wondered what a copyeditor does?  How about an editor?  And what's the difference? This is something that I think a lot of us don't know.  Taylor Stevens, an author who has graced this blog in the past, clarifies these questions.  I've got the whole article below.

But I've got a couple of other things to tell you first.

1.  My buddy Steve sent me this link to Amazon's 1st brick-and-mortar bookstore.  It's in Seattle (not surprisingly, since that's where Amazon's headquarters are).  They just announced that they've picked San Diego for their 2nd location.  And they intend to open a bunch more across the country.

2.  I announced this on social media.  But let me announce it here.  About 4 years ago, I asked for, got, and posted guest blogs.  I want to do that again.  Whether you are officially connected to book world (blogger, author, editor, publisher, etc.) or not, I would welcome your input.  If you've got something to say about books (print, ebooks, audiobooks), let me have it.  And if you want to connect  with me, go ahead and send me an email at

3.  Here is Taylor Stevens on editing/copyediting:


  1. Interesting article. I've done some copyediting myself and at times it can be thankless!

  2. A friend of mine is a copyeditor so I knew the difference. It's hard work!
