Write. Edit. Rewrite. Re-edit. Rewrite the edit. Edit the rewrite.
First drafts are meant to be rubbish. That’s a fact.
Which is why the role of editor or book doctor exists.
If you’ve written a first draft but having spent so long immersed in the text, it’s sometimes hard to take an objective look at it.
That’s where I can help.
I can look at it with a fresh pair of eyes.
I can give your manuscript an initial evaluation and if we want to work together, I can iron out the plotlines, settings, character developments, tone, and grammar.
If you need me to, I can completely work on the manuscript to create a book that you’ll be proud of.
And of course, it’ll still have your name on the front.
My book editing/doctoring process
1. Free consultation
We can chat, either on email or video call to find out a bit more about each other, your ideas, expectations, and aims.
2. basic manuscript review
I’ll take an initial look over your manuscript to ascertain what editorial work would need doing. I can provide free general feedback about your work.
3. fee quote
I’ll provide a free quote (with payment options) in the event that you would like me to go ahead and work on your manuscript.
4. fee quote
I’ll provide a free quote (with payment options) in the event that you would like me to go ahead and work on your manuscript. If your budget doesn’t extend to full editing services, I can provide a quote for detailed analysis and editorical recommendations for you to carry out yourself.
If you decide that you’d like me to edit your book, we’ll draw up a timeline of deliverables, finance, and goals. I’ll then get to work and keep you updated throughout the entire process.
