As a writer myself, I appreciate all feedback, positive and negative. What I do not like is the style of editing I class as editorial bullying – those editors who insist their way is the only way to make a manuscript work. I believe strongly that my job is to help you to find your own voice, to find structural solutions that feel like eureka moments for you, and to support you as you produce a manuscript which lives up to your own developing vision. It’s your novel. Not mine.
For selected manuscripts, there will be no less than two videoconferences (more if needed). I will read and annotate your manuscript with notes and provide a detailed editorial letter, which will include a structural overview.
Fees may vary according to the length or complexity of the work, but generally range from:
C$1750 – C$3000
