The Editing Process
Steps to polish your work
First Chapter Review
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.
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.
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.
