I offer several different editing services.
Full Manuscript Critique
With a full manuscript critique, you will receive an edit letter, in-text comments, and a five-page, in-line edit. I will point out light grammatical errors, inconsistencies in the story, and help to polish sentence structure and development. This is the most in-depth form of manuscript critique I offer. Includes a free query critique with purchase.
Receive a detailed edit letter on your first 50 pages, as well as in-text comments and a line edit of the first five pages. You'll also get detailed query and synopsis help to ensure that your submission shines!
If you’ve written a book and are unsure where to go next, a reader report might be the best step. I will read through your entire manuscript and provide you with an edit letter pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of the story. I will include areas for growth, plot problems, and character inconsistencies. This is what I like to call “book talk” and will help you feel more confident in the overall direction of your story.
Queries are often the first thing an agent or publisher sees of your story. It really needs to pop! I will provide an in-depth critique to make it the best and most gripping it can possibly be.
No one likes writing a synopsis, but sometimes they have to be done. I will read through your synopsis several times, providing opportunities to shorten or lengthen as needed. I will check for overall flow and comment on ways to strengthen and improve.
