Developmental Editing

*

Developmental editing can give you a strong idea of what is working in your manuscript, what still needs your attention, and how to go about revising. Depending on your needs, I will address elements such as:

      • Point of View
      • Dialogue
      • Description
      • Voice
      • Character
      • Setting
      • Pace

      • Plot
      • Subplot
      • Backstory
      • Theme
      • Conflict
      • Crisis
      • Resolution

Line Editing

Line editing takes an even more granular approach that involves detailed editing of the prose. The moment-to-moment action taking place in the narrative as well as grammar, style, and voice are considered.

Manuscript Consulting

Developmental and line editing are extensive and can be costly. For many people a general manuscript evaluation makes sense. Instead of detailed margin notes on the manuscript you will receive an editorial letter.

Book Coaching

Book coaching potentially involves any and all of the feedback described above with the added benefit of regularly scheduled contact that includes person-to-person consultations over phone or online. You may want to meet just once for a consultation to work out a specific problem, or you might want coaching that takes place over a period of weeks or months. We can design a plan that fits your needs.

The Agent Search

Congratulations! Your manuscript is ready to go. But another challenge lies ahead. If you're going the traditional route and need an agent, a query letter needs to be written. And sometimes they want a synopsis. And who exactly should you send it to?

 

Many writers would rather do anything than engage in self-promotion. You might be tempted to put this book away and start another one. But that instant gratification you've been craving for so long is almost within reach. Let me help you over this hurdle.

Proofreading and Copyediting

This kind of edit is reserved for books that are ready to be self-published or submitted to agents. You've done all your rewriting; this is the final polish and your last chance to fix those darn typos.
