EDITING NOVELS (For novels, we do all of the editing in the column at the left and the following.)
strengthen your characters
set the pace and tone
nullify plot issues
suggest necessary topic development and logic revisions
revise and improve sentence construction, precision, and organization
eliminate redundancies, inconsistencies, wordiness, and other issues with your prose
remove all other flaws keeping your novel from reaching its potential
construct your table of contents and all ‘front matter’ pages at no charge
At no charge, we also evaluate your book’s content. In the margins, we make evaluative comments and we explain corrections and suggestions covering the following questions.
What can be done to improve your work’s marketability?
Is the plot original and compelling?
Does it have any major organization or structural problems?
Have you missed any key ingredients or not developed any scenes or topics sufficiently?
Are the characters original and fully developed?
Is the dialogue genuine?
Is there too much description and exposition or interior monologue with too little action and/or dialogue?
Are there any clichés or stereotypes that weaken your writing?
Is there enough believability, suspense, action, conflict, and tension?
Is your book too short or too long, and, if so, why? Should it be part of a series?
Is there anything else that you, as the author, can do to improve it?
