Before we get started on editing services, I want to let you know that you have the ability to edit your own novel, and ediitng and proofing your own novel will save you thousands of dollars. If after reading the linked article and implementing those techniques, you are still uncomfortable with the quality of your book, go ahead and check out my ediitng services and prices.
Extreme Developmental Editing
Developmental editing involves checking your ebook, print book or novel manuscript for deep errors in the description, plots and subplots to ensure conformity throughout the storyline. Due to the heavy revision often needed by the writer after developmental editing, grammar and punctuation mistakes are often not corrected because that text may not exist after the extreme edit. This usually involves reading your manuscript several times. (Note: Comments will be as tactful as possible, but you will probably scream, cry, have a catastrophic meltdown and curse my name for months. This is a rip your book apart edit.)
- Fantasy (Witches, Warlocks, Vampires, Occult ect)
- Religion/Christian/Catholic (Alt views only. No hyper-positive or cliche'd religious texts. For an example of religious themes I edit, check out Josephine Leonard's Biblical Horror Fiction.)
(Adult genres only. No YA, Childrens, LGBT, Experimental, Science Fiction, Traditional Romance or Manuscripts Written in First or Second Person) To have these genres and writing styles edited, please check out Write Wave Media/Brand Shamans.

Does My Novel Suck Editing
Once you finish your novel, you may be wondering if it sucks, and you just want someone to read it to tell you where it doesn't make sense and if you need to pay attention to any particular chapters. This is a lighter edit when compared to a developmental edit, but it is still along the same line as a developmental edit. In other words, I'll locate and highlight the rough areas so that you don't have to comb through your novel for the next month looking for problems.
