The Kind and Gentle Editor
Author Alyssa Kress (see covers I did for her) now offers an editing service. She’s edited her own and other people’s books for a long time and wants to do it professionally. She loves the process of writing and wants to encourage others.
These are the services listed on her website. Check her out if you’re looking for an editor.
- Development Coach – step-by-step construction or revision of your project, including plot outline and development, characterization, and GMC (goal-motivation-conflict)
- Content Edit – a “big picture” feedback on your finished draft, which includes a detailed analysis of the major elements of your book as listed above: plot outline and development, characterization, GMC, continuity, pacing, theme
- Stylistic Edit (sometimes called line or copy edit) – the small, but important, stuff: word choice, word economy, grammar, spelling
- “Professional” Beta Read – this is like a Content Edit, but less detailed and more economical.
