What you get with this Hourlie
You will receive a report that discusses your story (developmental edit) and also comments on the manuscript which looks at the actual writing (line edit). This includes:
* Making specific comments to query the way you have written your prose so that you can critically consider your own writing and take it to a higher level.
* Discussing more general thoughts on how the story works overall to help you develop your story-telling skills.
* Pointing out corrections where I see obvious errors so that you learn to spot them yourself and improve your professionalism.
This will not only develop your current book but also improve your ability to write in general. I won't pander to a delicate ego or any desires to be 'the next big thing'. What I will do is give you honest, practical and useful advice on how to make your book and your writing as professional as possible.
WHY SHOULD YOU PICK ME?
I am a qualified, professional and experienced editor with over a decade of experience. I work full-time mentoring authors either through agencies or independently such as via this site.
Fiction is naturally a subjective business and I don't pretend to know everything or that following my advice will land you a MEGA deal but not everyone has people around them who have the necessary skills to help them move on with their writing.
I do have those skills and can share with you what I know. 100% happy clients agree.
I am also nice and friendly to deal with :-)
What the Seller needs to start the work
Please send me the complete manuscript in .doc or similar form.
Kelly is FANTASTIC!!! And believe me, I am critical. (Kelly, don't get a big head...I have yet to respond personally to your critique. It was brilliant though)'
I would recommend Kelly to anyone writing a book. I never imagined I would get as much feedback and learn so much from one simple exercise. Well Done K!
