Message From the Editor
I’m not sure what I’m looking for. I just want the 315-page manuscript of the romance novel to be great.
Wow, 106,000 words is an enormous accomplishment! Thank you for reaching out to Mythcreants to help with your novel.
From your sample, I see that you have a handle on the writing mechanics. Much of my work would focus on pacing, point of view, and voice. Sometimes the voice strays to the overly technical – we start with this character who’s thinking about their latest rendezvous, but then it launches into a detailed description of the requirements for a presentation, which came off as overly corporate writing that readers don’t normally see in a romance novel. With our Heavy Editing service, I’ll point out places where the voice strays too far and help make suggestions so that we can keep readers engaged all the way through.
Since you say that you’re not sure what you’re looking for, though, I might recommend going through our Consulting service with Oren first. He’ll take a look at the work as a whole to make sure that the story itself works before I get to the nitty-gritty, sentence- and paragraph-level details. Oren has quoted $712.13 for a developmental edit, and you can request it separately on our Order a Consultation page.
If you decide to consult with Oren, then you would want to resubmit your request for editing with your revised work. Otherwise, I’ve included a quote below for Heavy Editing based on your current draft. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Looking forward to working with you!
Your edited manuscript will be returned within 4 weeks (20 business days) after we've received full payment and the document for Heavy Editing. This does not include the black-out window of December 24 through January 1.
