The Editing Process
How we polish your work
First Chapter Review
First, we need to define your dreams for your book. Then you send me your very first chapter, a quick summary of the book and a word count. I will edit the first 5,000 words and create a specific plan for publishing and marketing your novel.

I will consider your entire work for strengths and weaknesses. You will receive a character analysis and specific suggestions to improve your plot and pacing. Many authors choose to do a rewrite after this in-depth feedback.
