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.
Language is polished in an intensive line-by-line edit. I will check to make sure your story is factually correct, internally consistent and easy to read.
In this optional step, we will send your book out to real readers who will give their honest opinion. This is an excellent way to get feedback and reviews before publication
