Congrats on writing your romance novel! Before you invest in the final polish, it's really important to get feedback on your:
Opening Hook: intrigue & character empathy
Plot: pace, structure, theme & clarity
Character: development, goals & depth
Style: tone, syntax, grammar, repetition & tenses
I'll also focus on genre specific areas, like how engaging your heroine is, and if your romantic hero has what it takes to capture the hearts of readers.
For $10 I will:
Read the first 1,000 words of your romance book to identify key areas requiring development, and celebrate your strengths.
Just as importantly, my reports include clear, precise creative strategy. It's one thing to know your hero feels a little two-dimensional, but I'll offer actual examples for how to give him greater depth.
As a full-time fiction editor I've developed hundreds of fiction books, including 100+ romances. My writers write for many of the main publishers: Entangled, Soulmate and Harlequin to name a few.
I edit all romance genres but particularly love historical, contemporary, YA and NA. Having said that, I'm well versed in paranormal, fantasy, suspense and erotica.
