Fiction Starter Edit

Fiction Starter Edit

Not sure if your manuscript is ready for a full edit?

Would you like some feedback on how your writing is going?

With a Fiction Starter Edit you receive a Content Edit and Line Edit on the first chapter of your manuscript.  Aside from assisting you in polishing that important first chapter, this service has the following benefits:

  • Feedback on whether your manuscript is ready for more editing, and if so, which type of editing.
  • Assessment of whether the story is starting in the right place, and with a good hook.
  • A check for the inclusion of the essential elements of a first chapter.
  • Highlighting the writing techniques you are using well, and identifying the ones you need to work on.  Applying what you learn from this to the rest of your novel will potentially lower your overall editing costs.
  • You get a sampling of my editing style and this will help you decide if I’m the right editor for you.

Please note this edit does not include prologues, and is for chapters up to 3500 words in length.

Cost: $60 AUD / $50 USD
