For over a decade, Novel Needs has edited for traditionally and independently published authors.
You've worked hard on your novel, crafting a story to entertain your readers. Now, you're ready for the next step in your writing journey.
The editing process shouldn't be scary. What are you looking for when you work with an editor? I want to help you ready your book to put into your readers' hands. Most authors send their entire manuscript while some I work with on a chapter by chapter basis. I tailor the experience to the person and have an open line of communication.
As I edit, I'm not only looking for grammatical errors; I am scrutinizing every detail of your manuscript.
Checking that your flow, tone, and style are consistent
Ensuring you haven't overused or misused words and phrases.
Examining all the particulars to verify that there aren't any inconsistencies in your character descriptions, plot points, or settings
Make sure you’ve explained yourself well and that there are no continuity errors or loose ends.
Turn around time for the average novel is 5-7 business days.
Fees for editing are $.007/word. I will send you an invoice once I receive your entire manuscript with full payment due upon completion of the edit.
Email your manuscript or any questions to:
