Jason Black, developmental editor

So you wrote a novel.

That's pretty awesome, actually. Everybody loves to tell themselves they've got a novel in them, but the fraction of people who actually undertake the task of writing it is small. The fraction who complete it, after recognizing the scope of the task, is vanishingly small.

Already you are in elite company.

Most writers' next question is, is it any good? Sometimes, when you remember the exhilaration of writing a scene that had you captivated, or the pride of reaching the end, you probably think it is. Other days, when you remember your day job has nothing to do with writing novels, when you hear how hard getting published is, or when an agent sends you a rejection letter, you probably feel that it isn't.

Then you wonder how to fix your novel to make it good.

That's what developmental editors are for. I don't fix it for you, but I help you see what needs fixing in the areas of writing craft, character development, and story structure. Click on over to Editing to learn how the process works, or to Contact if you have any questions.
