My Book Doctoring Process
As your Book Doctor, I read your manuscript and focus on big-picture issues: Character development, plot arc, pacing, as well as the skilled use of fiction writing techniques and consistency in your storylines.
During this developmental edit, I correct grammar and any typos as I see them. But my focus during this process is to clarify where your novel is succeeding and where and how it can be improved. If you would like me to also line edit, I can do this as well.
I went through your critique of my novel last night and read all your comments. They were excellent throughout! Amazing how you picked up the things I felt weren’t there, yet didn’t know why or what to do about them... You have been a great teacher and friend. I'm sure there are countless others like me—who would be trapped in our own minds and our own darkness if you hadn't coaxed us, with your gentle approach, your sincere encouragement, and your complete non-judgment of who we are—into finding our way through the words waiting to come out on our pages. ~ Susan Omilian
