Writing Help for Authors

 

Great storytelling isn't based on the most exciting, clever or funny content. It's all about delivery. 

 

 

Make sure the words on the page

reflect what you had in mind.

 

You've been working on this book for months (or years!), and you're finally ready for the next step, hiring an editor. Believe me, I understand at this point it's become like your baby. You've carried it in your thoughts for so long that you're nervous about handing it over to some stranger's chopping block.

 

This is more than just having a fresh pair of eyes proofread for typos. The complete story is fully contained in your mind. While it's impossible to fit the entire panoramic view of your thoughts into a single book, a precise editor will point out the gaps and wrinkles and work with you to translate what's written into the complete story you intended.
