And so your journey begins ...


You’ve written your novel and now it’s ready for editing. A manuscript critique will look at the structure and bigger issues of the story, but if you're happy with that then it's ready for the next step: line and copy editing. This is a sentence-level edit and will eliminate anything that might distract your readers. But don't worry, no matter what changes I suggest, the decision to accept them is always yours. 

Let’s turn your story into a great book that readers will love.

I'm delighted to have worked with Deborah on the editing of my novel. It feels as if I've taken a master class in creative writing tailored specifically to my style, alerting me to habitual weaknesses and helping me to build on strengths in narrative and dialogue.

Deborah was great to work with. When I told her that I was a first-time author and I wasn't sure about all the different types of editing, she explained everything to me, clearly and thoroughly. The manuscript evaluation and copy edit that I received from her was very detailed and extremely helpful. Would definitely recommend her!
