- I’ve been reading romance novels for most of my life.
I know it inside and out. I read everything from YA to erotic romance, and I can help you with any subgenre. Historical, check. Paranormal, definitely. Romantic suspense, absolutely. I can also work with any heat level from sweet to burn my pants off.
- I once had an author threaten to punch me in the face.
That sounds terrible, but let me explain. I was helping her through a problem with her plot. I told her why her way wasn’t working and what she needed to do to change it. She growled, pouted, threatened me, walked away, and an hour later told me that I was right.* When you hire a good editor, they will help you fix your novel. When you hire the right editor, they will make you dig deeper, work harder, and probably make you want to punch said editor. But your novel will be more emotional and explosive, and all the better for it.
Do you have trouble keeping track of the teeny, tiny details, that you don’t think anyone would notice? For example, in Chapter One, a character says that they’ve never been to New York in an off-handed remark to their best friend. But then in Chapter Twenty, suddenly the same character went on a family trip to New York when they were thirteen.
I catch ALL of those details. With Line Edits, I go over your novel with a fine-toothed comb, looking for any small inconsistencies, while making sure that your word choice is strong and flows smoothly, and the style remains the same throughout.
Have trouble keeping track of details after you published your book? I do create beautiful, color-coded book bibles for manuscripts, published novels, and series. Talk me to about it!
- Fast turn around.
I can edit a 75K novel and get it back to you in less than two weeks. I take my time, making sure I catch everything I need to, while still getting it back to you quickly. Once you go through that round of edits, we can move onto the next stage.
Need an edit done faster? Talk to me about my three-day turn around!
- I offer a second round of edits for only half the price!
When you hire me to do a Developmental Edit, I will push you and make you dig deeper into your story. I will ask you why things are happening the way they are, why characters are responding a certain way, and how you can make it better. One of my clients added an extra 15,000 words to her manuscript because of that.
If you make a ton of changes to your manuscript, you can hire me to do a second round of edits for only half the original price! I do this for Developmental Edits and Line Edits. The second round is to help make sure that all of the new content flows with the story, the character arcs are still consistant, and there aren’t any new plot holes or issues.
Are you ready to dig deep, and make your book the absolute best it can be? Contact me today and tell me your story!
*I am happy to say that that kerfuffle did not end our friendship.
