One line at a time.
You’re ready to get your manuscript out there. So you need an in-depth look at your prose to help get you past the publishing gatekeepers or set you apart as a professional in self-publishing. Let’s ensure that what you’ve spent months (or even years) crafting will hook your target audience from word one.
This level edit will help you hook a reader in the first paragraph, help trim word count where needed, and ensure your work shines.
In-depth line editing (focused on prose execution) offers correction and smoothing of:
- word economy
- point-of-view clarity
- sentence structure
- rhetorical issues (ethos, logos, pathos)
- your nonfiction angle
- the logic and power of an argument
- cohesiveness of ideas
- marketability stumbling blocks
- proper capitalization
- small inconsistencies (such as an eye-color change in a fictional character or inconsistency in source citations)
- including adherence to style guides and academic formats, where needed
I count having worked with Angela Eschler as both a great professional opportunity and a personal pleasure. We have worked together on three books now, two of which have been finalists in national competitions. I attribute the quality of these novels in great part to Angela’s top-caliber editing and to her wise literary guidance and knowledge of the market. I would highly recommend her team to any author regardless of genre or level of experience.”
