Service Description

At NYN, we specialise in developmental editing, the creme de la creme of editing services. This is because the most gains can be made through a developmental edit. We only work with a select few each year and we only work with one client at a time. What you will get: Stage one - Editorial Assessment: MS analysed and 10 page (minimum) report produced. I assess the big plot-based stuff for flow, impact etc, characterisation and character development, narrative and character arc, chapter opening and closing, opening line, dialogue, improvements to voice or prose for better immersive experience. Stage two - Developmental Edit: this is the action part of the developmental edit, where we've agreed what needs actioning. I go through the MS chapter by chapter, working out what needs to move, be cut, line editing suggestions, based upon the editorial report. Includes all meetings and two coaching sessions. Best to book a call or drop me an email at, or send me a chat message. We can then take it from there. You can book an initial call with me using the calendar. Samples are requested to provide a quote. And for you to see if we are a good fit to work together.
