Book Editing

Book Editing

After reading and evaluating your book, I will suggest in either the book itself or through notes what needs to be changed or improved upon. The focus will be on how the story flows in terms of the structure and chapter layout, as well as the overall theme and character elements.  The editing will also focus on how well the characters evolve or if they need improvements, including adding more depth to them and occasional dialogue to make them stand out more.  Details to description are also addressed as well as the ending and overall take away – the theme and message – of the book and how well it impacts the reader.

Some edits include actual eliminations, moving of paragraphs or text and/or restructuring book chapters.  Outline and flow of the story is also addressed.  If the story and characters are in need of additional development, it is possible the book needs to go through a development process.  See screenplay story development for that process.  All of the needs of the book will be addressed in the initial evaluation of the book and provided in notes to the Author so they can determine if they want to use my Book Editing, Book Ghostwriting, or Book Polishing services.  Each book is different and requires a different amount of work, based on the Author’s previous writing experience and background.   

The Book Editor, Book Ghostwriter, or Book Polishing services do not affect the Author’s full ownership of the book.  This is stated in all the written contracts.  The Author always maintains full ownership of the book and it’s entire content, despite having taken the help of a Book Ghostwriter.
