The Editing Process

Steps to polish your work

First Chapter Review

3-5 days

First, we will chat on the phone to define your author dreams. 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 your publishing and marketing your novel.

Developmental Edit

2-4 weeks

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 pause to do a rewrite after this in-depth feedback.

Line Edit

1-3 weeks

Language is polished an intensive line-by-line edit. I will check to make sure your story is factually correct, internally consistent and easy to read.
