What Do You Need?
Unlike copy editors who address grammar and punctuation, or line editors who enhance your novel sentence-by-sentence, I assess your book on a big picture scale.
This involves determining your theme, audience, and the effectiveness of your usage of literary elements, such as plot and character development. My edits often include an emphasis on world-building, setting, POV, timeline, and plot inconsistencies as well.
My services include developmental edits and manuscript evaluations intended to help indie and aspiring authors cultivate their works and advance their skills.
