Editorial Assessment

This review of your full manuscript shows you what you have on the page so you can compare it to the vision in your head. An editorial assessment provides actionable feedback and advice to help you plan your next steps.

You'll receive an editorial letter (10+ pages) explaining how well your manuscript fits in with your genre and target market. I'll detail problems I see with plot, characters, and structure, plus make recommendations for meeting your writing goals.

Developmental Editing

This service helps you solve plot problems, strengthen your character development, and streamline your story from start to finish. You might be surprised what I find. It's normal for this stage to require a new draft; this is a long term relationship.

You'll receive an editorial letter (15+ pages) detailing plot, characters, structure, and how they work with your genre and target audience. You'll find sections explaining problem areas and how they affect your book's success. This letter includes a full review of the foundations of writing, narrative structure, missing research points, tips and tricks for your genre, and general recommendations. You'll also receive line, chapter, and overall notes in your manuscript.

Line Editing

This service checks language, character, setting, and description consistencies throughout your manuscript to help you improve your overall writing quality.

This is best utilized after solving plot problems.

You'll receive an editorial letter (5+ pages) discussing your language usage, consistent problems, how these aspects fit with your genre and target market, and how they affect your book's success. 

You'll also receive line, chapter, and overall notes in your manuscript.
