Editorial Services 

  • Manuscript critique: reviews plot, structure, and flow. A comprehensive assessment for a stronger narrative, better pacing, and engaging characters. An editorial report is sent to the author with suggestions for improving the elements listed above.

  • Comprehensive edit/line editing: in-depth and thorough edit that goes through the manuscript line by line. Addresses the creative content, writing style, and language use at the sentence and paragraph level. A line edit focuses on the way you use language to communicate your story to the reader.

  • Copyediting and stylistic editing: correct spelling, grammar, punctuation, and syntax. It ensures consistency in spelling, hyphenation, numerals, fonts, and capitalization. This step will also include a stylistic edit, which clarifies the meaning, eliminates jargon, and polishes language while maintaining the author’s voice and style.​​​ Typically this is the last step before proofreading and publishing.


  • Developmental editing: focuses on how your story functions–for instance, structure, plot, flow, point of view, characterization, and pace. This includes an editorial report and comments in the manuscript itself.
