We work with you at every step of your literary journey,
helping to bring out the most from your book.
You get guidance on plot, pacing, characters, dialogue, research needed, genre expectations, and chapter and scene length -- all in an editorial letter, with a summary of suggestions.
We look at the big picture, with analysis of your manuscript as a whole, and offer ideas when you're stuck.
We focus on style, grammar, word usage, punctuation and spelling issues in the cleanup stage, to ensure effective communication.
Substantive / Line Editing
To help your writing stay on target, you get an editorial letter with a summary of suggestions addressing clarity, structure, transition, flow, consistency, tone and sensitivity/bias/inclusivity issues.
We review your writing for any omitted fixes, as well as typographical issues, to help ensure that it is ready for publication. This is the last step before your book goes to your readers.
