About This Gig

Congrats on writing your fantasy novel! Before you move to the final polish, it's crucial to get feedback on your:

  • Opening Hook: intrigue & character empathy
  • Plot: pace, structure, conflict
  • Character: dialogue, tension, intimacy
  • World Building: consistency, originality, completenes
  • Style: skillful use of detail, setting descriptions, and pace in action scenes

I'll also focus on genre specific areas, like the depth of character driven conflict and if your story has the power to draw the reader into another world.

For $10 I will: 

  • Read the first 1,000 words of your fantasy book to identify key areas requiring development and celebrate your strengths. 

  • Write comments on your story while reading. I use Word's "track changes" to make these visible to the author.

  • Report on your story with a creative strategy in mind. It's one thing to know your scene needs some work, but I'll offer actual examples for how to make your reader feel the texture of the grass in a secluded meadow.

I edit all subgenres and particularly enjoy historical, contemporary, weird fiction, high fantasy, and mythic fiction.
