HIRE THE AMTRAK RESIDENCY WINNER TO EDIT YOUR NOVEL.
I charge $0.01 per word for Structural Editing (also called Line Editing or Substantive Editing). You get analysis-based editing, starting with the manuscript level, and drilling down to chapters, paragraphs, sentences, and word choice. What works? What doesn’t? Why? How to make it better?
My main job is to help you deliver the manuscript that fulfills your goals and speaks to your audience, and to help you see the big picture by advising you how to deliver your story best and how to make it clear and concise. I’ll work on examining the overall structure and organization, filling in the blanks, eliminating repetitions, and strengthening your voice. I’ll write an editorial letter, and I’ll mark up the document itself.

"I am so relieved to have you editing this. I went through your comments and they're exactly what I was looking for."
"That is EXACTLY what I needed. I am actually so fucking happy right now, because now I know what to do. I was telling myself a story, and I knew I was leaving a lot out. Now I can comb through it carefully and fix what needs to be fixed."
