Manuscript Services

Substantive Content Editing
Evaluate such things as flow, consistency, pace and readability. Identify structural/organizational problems and clarify and correlate parts of the manuscript to correct them. Does not include researching or writing original material. Typically this is a two-step process with the first edit encompassing the above information and the second edit fine-tuning and catching punctuation and spelling errors.

Line Editing/Copy Editing
Thorough line-by-line edit including punctuation, grammar, sentence, verb tense and plot structure errors. This is done with track editing and comments. This is a once and done edit, but questions are accepted from the author for clarification if needed.

Query Letter or One Sheet Critique
Your query letter or one sheet is the most important element in your proposal package. This letter is the first piece of writing an agent or publisher will see from you and it must be concise, compelling and grammatically correct.

I will read your letter and provide suggestions for improvement. You may revise and return to me for further suggestions up to 4 times.

IMPORTANT: I will need to know which agents you are submitting to before I evaluate the query letter, as each agency’s requirements can differ.
