Developmental Editing Services for Fantasy Fiction
You've written your story. Your characters live on the page in a world that is alive and real and there. Now all you need to do is tweak and polish the structure to allow that world to shine through the page, breathe life into the minds of your readers, and echo in their imagination. Don't let confusing timelines or unnecessary plot points muddle the voices of your characters or get in the way of your story's purpose.

Trim, cut, and hone the structure of your story into a powerful and impactful novel. Developmental editing (also called substantive editing, structural editing, or manuscript critique) is a workshop of your story as a whole. I will carefully read through your unpublished manuscript and give you feedback and critique on a range of subjects. This is ideal for authors who have finished their stories but are unsure of the effectiveness of their plot, characters, timeline, and other large-scale areas of their narrative, and need a second pair of eyes to streamline your novel into a finished whole.
