STRUCTURAL EDITING: Do you want your story
to stick with readers for days, weeks or  months
to come? Whether you're a seasoned professional or
an aspiring author, a structural edit could be the
difference between a book that resonates and one that
is easily forgotten.

   A structural edit analyses target market, characterisation, GMC (goal, motivation and conflict), pacing, setting, plot, narrative voice, structure, POV and more to help you make your novel the best it can be. This form of edit is comprised of a multi-page report and a marked up manuscript, leaving you with easy-to-follow instructions that will make your story stronger.

 

LINE EDITING: A line edit is your standard form of editing, CREATIVE ink style. Think basic spelling and grammar, plus benefits. From repetition to inconsistencies, unnecessary words to awkward phrasing, and even bigger-scale issues that you might need a second set of eyes to see (and trust me, we've all been there—when you're the author, it's hard to see the forest for the trees!), this is the edit for you.

   A line edit consists of one pass and a two-hour revision to allow you to workshop any problem areas in your story and have them looked over. A second read is available on request for an additional (reduced) fee.

   Your beta read will be performed by an industry professional, who will then give feedback via a form and some markings in your manuscript. This is a great way to help you discover what's working in your story and what could use some improvement, as well as to uncover characters that aren't resonating and potential plot holes.
