Are you a fiction writer? Have you written a novel you want to release into the world? Let me help you shape and polish your story into the best book it can be. Check out the services I offer and let me know what you and your book are looking for!
Developmental editing is ideal for a completed manuscript. You need someone to dig in deep to improve your story. In a developmental edit, I’ll use Track Changes to keep notes and questions on the entire manuscript. I’ll focus on plot, structure, characterization, pacing, dialogue, style consistency, and continuity. In addition to my notes in your manuscript itself, I’ll write you an editorial letter of my high-level comments and suggestions. This is the best option for comprehensive feedback on your overall story.
Detailed Line Editing
If you’re looking for help with the nuts and bolts of your writing, but not your story, a detailed line edit will get you there. In this option, I’ll pay attention to grammar, spelling, punctuation, and word choice to clarify and tighten your writing. I won’t write an editorial letter, but I will use Track Changes to mark my edits throughout your manuscript.
Interested in feedback on your overall manuscript but not looking for the detail of a developmental edit? Here, I’ll read your full (or partial) manuscript and I’ll give you suggestions and comments. I’ll also list the strengths and weaknesses of your piece.
