Essential if you are getting ready to query or self-publish, a line edit focuses on the language of your manuscript. I combine the different depths of copyediting into a single service, examining grammar, punctuation, spelling, format, logic and clarity, word usage, overwriting, verb tense, sentence structure, and much more!
My most flexible service, this is an affordable, personalized story and writing assessment, designed to help any author take their writing to the next level. If you're not sure what you're looking for, start here.
This service focuses on the story part of your manuscript. I conduct an in-depth review of structure, plot, character development, dialogue, pacing, and tension and stakes. You’ll receive a comprehensive editorial report where I’ll identify any significant areas of concern and provide clear, actionable suggestions for improvements, using your own writing as examples. In addition, I will make extensive notes on the manuscript itself, analyzing these elements at the chapter, scene, and paragraph level. If you are serious about improving as a storyteller, a developmental edit will take you to the next level.
