Professional Editing Services

 

Everyone needs an editor.

It is impossible to be objective about your own work, good intentions aside. A good book editor will do so much more than pick at your grammar and catch your typos. They’ll look at story structure, pacing, plot, and characterization, identify weaknesses and provide insight on how to make your book stronger.

Our lead developmental editor, Holly Atkinson, has worked with numerous authors, including New York Times and USA Today best sellers. She describes her editing style as “firm but fair,” preferring to nurture where possible to encourage author growth. Most importantly, she is a proponent of maintaining your author voice. The book is yours, and it should still sound like it’s yours by the time the editing process is complete.

NovelSharp operates on the philosophy that the relationship between the novel editor and author should be collaborative and educational. We have the same goals — that is, we all want the book to succeed.

 
 

editing and beyond
