Message From the Editor
Thank you for reaching out to us. Reading through your sample, I can tell that you have a strong grasp of characterization and how to set up a scene. The pacing and theme were spot on and reminded me a bit of the True Blood books.
I saw a lot of opportunity for me to help with sentence flow and grammar, and I wondered if you might be happier with our heavy editing service. Here’s an example of the difference:
- Original sentences from your draft: I glanced down at my clothes which were ripped and torn. There was a pool of blood under me the sight of which made me light-headed.
- Suggested sentences from a medium edit: I glanced down at my clothes, which were ripped. Under me, there was a pool of blood, the sight of which made me light-headed.
- Suggested sentence from a heavy edit: I glanced down at my shredded clothes and grew light-headed when I saw a pool of blood under me.
For medium edits, we correct what is necessary. For heavy edits, we make bolder suggestions to improve the overall wordcraft.
I’ve included a quote below for the medium edit you requested. If you’d like to go further with a heavy edit, it would cost an additional $340, and I would be happy to update this quote for you.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about our process before we get started.
All the best,
