Professional editing input
Need more in-depth help? Closer guidance? A full structural editing report perhaps, or maybe your MS is ready for copy-editing? We are now working with professional editing partners Fiction Feedback. Please email email@example.com with your request or query.
- Structural/developmental editing
This is usually charged at a rate per 1,000 words.
Our editors are crime fiction specialists, and in many cases are themselves agents or published crime writers. All our editors are experienced, encouraging and expert.
- Structural editing/critique hybrid
If you have specific questions about your novel, and perhaps need tailored editing input rather than a full-novel edit, we can provide this too. It costs more than a critique, but less than a full structural edit.
At one time, you wouldn’t have needed this prior to submitting to an agent or publisher. Now submissions are so competitive, having a copy-edited MS puts you at a big advantage. It’s also useful for competition entries, whether full novels or short stories. The rate is per 1,000 words. We’re also happy to copy-edit just a novel opening at a fixed fee; contact us for rates. Of course, if you’re publishing independently, then this is an essential edit for your full novel, novella or short story.
- Submission package special
We’ll give a developmental view of your novel opening up to 10,000 words, and your synopsis and query letter. We return these to you for your revisions, then copy-edit your final draft. Cost: £350.
The CWA/Fiction Feedback gave me an invaluable and insightful structural analysis of my MS, and then copy-edited it to within an inch of its life! Wonderful, painstaking service, which I shall certainly use again.Simon
