full manuscript edit with line edits

A Full Manuscript Edit with line edits is the most detailed review of your work I can offer. As with a Full Manuscript Edit, I will read through your entire manuscript, paying close attention to your story’s logic, narrative arc, characterization, writing/language/voice, world-building, and pacing. I will also make editorial comments (or line edits) on each page of your manuscript, highlighting problems and asking questions, so you can see page-by-page any areas that need work. Because this type of editing takes more time, the Full Manuscript Edit with line edits costs more than my other editorial services.

I’ll also provide thorough and detailed feedback on your work in the form of a written Editorial Letter between 16-20 pages in length. In this letter, I will analyze what’s working in your manuscript and what needs more attention. I’ll suggest ways to tighten your plot, build tension, and give your characters voice, motivation, and agency. I’ll also provide ideas for revision, which will streamline your process and give it purpose. Finally, I will make myself available for questions and conversation, so that you feel confident and motivated to move forward.

If you are interested in this service, please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss your project.
