Fiction editing

I’ve finished writing my novel. What do I do now?

First of all – congratulations! Writing a novel is hard work.

As for the next step – getting your manuscript published can be tough. Having an experienced editor check over your story before you approach a publisher will make a huge difference to your chances of getting published.

Even if you choose the route of self-publishing, your readers will expect a polished story.

How can Cath improve your manuscript?

  • By tidying up story threads and improving suspense, or structural edit.
  • By polishing and clarifying to make it easier for your readers, or copy edit.
  • With a straightforward proof to correct minor errors, or proofread.
