The difference between launching the new feature novel on the New York Times Best Seller list getting tossed in a publisher’s trashcan is surprisingly slim. While no one can claim the formula to the next great American novel, quality standards and practices in writing and editing solidify creative pieces as candidates for publishing.
Your Own Personal Editor
Anyone can sit down at a keyboard for a few weeks and string together several hundred pages — if they put their mind to it. Those words may appear strong from the writer’s perspective, but fail to evoke an emotional response from discerning readers. Or worse, literary shortcomings leave readers questioning the writer’s talent.
Even the best writers in the world need a great editor. Writers of all skills and experience levels need a partner in creativity, someone to review work, monitor progress and guide story structure.

You want the fruits of your mind to come to life on paper and screens everywhere. Writers often need an unbiased, third-party perspective to critique ideas and develop great storylines.
Our editing and consulting services cover quality elements including basic spelling, punctuation, grammar and syntax, as well style story development, narrative, structure and flow. Various editing and consultation levels allow you to customize our service to your needs and budget.
