Editing and Beta Reader for Novels
I will edit and critique your entire novel manuscript. This service focuses on larger issues like plotting, character development, flow, consistency, structure, clarity, and so on, rather than spelling and grammar. (For proofreading, check out my "Other Services.") You will get your manuscript back, fully marked up, within approximately three weeks. depending on length. Speaking of length, I'm an expert at cutting it down if it's too long.
I will use Track Changes in Microsoft Word (please don't send a PDF or Pages file) offer inline commentary on your text. I will summarize my feedback.
I hold a diploma in professional writing, tutored writing for five years at the university level, and interned with a publishing company. I have over a decade of professional editing experience and am a writer myself. I love reading and look forward to seeing your work!
