- Are You In Need Of a Good Editor?
If you are in need of editing and/or proofreading, Norm Goldman, Publisher & Editor of Bookpleasures.com, highly recommends
Deborah's Writing Service. Deborah is the CEO & Founder of Creative Writing Institute - a non-profit organization that awards writing scholarships to cancer patients. In addition, Ms. Owen is a published author, writing course developer, private writing tutor, proofreader and editor.
Deb can make you look good! At $35 an hour her light editing includes:
Blending of paragraphs
Separation into new paragraphs
Subject and verb agreement
Checking for open and closed quotes
Basic sentence structure changes
Or you can have a total rewrite for $60 an
hour that will include all of the above, plus
a comprehensive, in-depth analysis that deals with the mechanics
of writing, such as:
Filling out characters
Change of dialogue
Adjusting pace and tone
Re-titling chapters, if needed
Forming proper resolutions
In addition, she will check for sagging scenes and holes in the development. The end result will be a well-organized work that will blend into one cohesive unit, holding all of your ideas and passions - but a lot of your words will change. Very few editors offer this type of editing because it is very time consuming.
This type of editing does more than polish. It makes your work shine with all the things you were trying to say – but not in the way you would say them. If you are attached to your words, this is not the kind of editing you want.
***Please Note: Deb does not
guarantee that you will be able to sell your work. No editor will
guarantee that because it depends on more than the content.
Sales hinge on the market, agent choice, timing,
persistence, and message of the manuscript.
