How It Works

Rhythm, elegance, and SO MUCH MORE.
Dig deeper than grammar to save your book. Line editing is much more than a basic grammar check. It’s the secret weapon that pushes your words from suitable to shining, by strengthening your writing, improving rhythm and flow, and clarifying your ideas. Line by line, I'll perform these tasks:
cohesion/flow (linking ideas)
plausibility (there were five hands in that sex scene!)
rhythm and elegance
word usage (blond/blonde)
numbers (spelled vs. numeral)
How It Works
I make all edits using The Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed.) and Track Changes while fighting off monkeys with a stick. Note: If your story isn't in good condition for line editing, I will let you know as soon as possible into the process.

Concept and planning of YOUR NOVEL.
There are no new ideas. But that shouldn’t stop you from writing them in new ways. Planning your romance novel isn’t just for the Type A plotter. It’s for any writer who wants greater understanding of their story. It prevents you from running into hazards and holes while you’re writing. It gets you to a finished first draft and makes revision easier. For outlines or partial manuscripts.
