Service Description

Thorough edit for typos, spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, etc. Formatting for traditional manuscript (for submission to agents, publishers, etc., or for print up-load (createspace, Adobe Acrobat), or for e-pub (kindle, smashwords, etc.)

I can also advise on plotting, dialogue, characterization, etc. With 6 published novels, I know what agents and publishers are looking for in the way of lay-out, quality, and format and I know the beginning writer mistakes that they are NOT looking for.
