What you get
I examine each sentence and word in your novel and provide you with a Tracked Changes copy of your manuscript for you to review.
You receive an editorial letter about what works well and what could be improved to tighten and clarify your story and message.
You get a style sheet to keep track of your characters, places, cultures, magical items, etc., so you can be sure you are staying consistent during revisions.

After you review my comments, the letter, and style sheet, we have a chat about your thoughts on them and discuss your best approach to get your novel ready for publishing or querying.
