If I order Collaborative Editing or the Professional Editing Package, will I have continued contact with the editor who worked on my book after the one-hour consulting session?

Will my manuscript be flawless when it is returned to me? Why would I want to order multiple rounds of editorial work if your editors are so good? First, different editors look at different issues. Collaborative editors are looking at the text as a reader or agent would: Is this a good story?
Will it find its intended audience? Does the author have to address any high-level issues with style or voice? Copy editors, on the other hand, are ace grammarians and are looking at the text line by line from a technical standpoint: Is the writing comprehensible and free of typos?
Are capitalization and similar style components consistent throughout, so as not to confuse or distract the reader? Though a few can do it all, many editors specialize in one type of editing.
Second, additional editing is a must anytime significant revisions are made, as rewriting will inevitably introduce new errors. Some of the titles you see on the shelves went through multiple rounds of developmental and copyediting before the authors and publishers were satisfied with the finished work.
With three full rounds, our Professional Editing Package gives your manuscript the same thorough treatment best-selling and award-winning books receive. If I choose multiple rounds of editing, how much will my project cost?
