We offer no-nonsense, honest feedback and editing services. If you would like to use our services, please contact us at ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ or through our “Contact” form.
We offer substantive editing (also known as developmental editing and comprehensive editing) in which we offer feedback on content, organization, plot, and style.
Excerpts, Stand-alone Articles & Short Stories (pieces up to 10,000 words) and Full-Length Manuscripts:
- breakdown of overarching or emerging issues.
- reading analysis: characterization, setting development, and plot introduction.
- grammar, spelling, tone, etc: When doing substantive/content editing, we won’t be proofreading the text. But we will highlight issues, offer selected examples, and refer you to resources. For proofreading services, please scroll down.
- hook and reader appeal: Does the book engage the reader? Is the reader likely to continue reading? What kinds of readers (and in which age group and genre) will read on?
It can be a struggle to condense a story into a couple short, succinct paragraphs of awesome; all sorts of feathery fluff ends up sticking out. We’ll take a look and provide suggestions and recommended edits.
For both excerpt and full manuscripts, we perform extensive proofreading for grammar, spelling, and consistency.
