Agents of Literary Change

VIP Editing can provide you with a competent and professional second set of eyes. It is a proven fact that it's impossible to proof your own work; you tend to overlook mistakes of all sizes. Your mind subconsciously fills in what it thinks should be there and your conscious appraisal is none the wiser. But you can be sure that an agent or acquisitions editor will be aware of your oversights. Because editing is actually part of the writing process, you absolutely cannot let your manuscript leave your possession without this important step.

Besides a detailed copy edit, we can assist with story and character development by offering suggestions for improvement or actually assisting with rewrites.

We focus on the following critical areas, as needed:
 Plot Structuring
 Setting the Hook
 Building Suspense
 Story Development
 Point of View
 The Scene/Setting
 Character Development
 Action and Pacing
 Tone / Voice
 Authentic Dialogue
 Style Consistency
 Readability
 Climax / Story Resolution

Critique
Nothing but the truth ...
We start our collaboration from a foundation of honesty and ethics. When you ask for this appraisal, we will give you a chapter by chapter analysis of your manuscript. We view the manuscript as your readers would and ask questions that are left out.
An evaluation will tell you whether you're on the right or wrong track (or even have writing talent); a critique deals with specifics. Your manuscript will be examined for areas of weakness, inconsistencies, and character development problems. Accuracy, clarity, completeness, faults in chronology, voice, viewpoint, and overall impact of the work on the reader will also be assessed. When necessary, alternate themes, organization, dialogue, sub-plots, descriptive passages, or tie-ins will be suggested. Both the evaluation and the critique include an opinion regarding marketability.

SPAM IS SO NOT COOL!

Please do not greet everyone on the site with large images and announcements of your book or business. Yes, you want to tell the world, but learn the fine art of subtlety. A simple welcome and signature/link is fine. Let them ask you for more.
We have lost numerous members because of the amount of 'friend' mail they instantly receive. This Hurts Everyone.
Spam is unsolicited advertising, whether it is posted as comments on other members' pages or is emailed for marketing purposes.

Please be considerate. Post your advertisement in the proper Articles/Forum or Group. There are free classifieds on the Pages tab. You can post your information on your profile and even update your blog as often as you like.

We are not into censorship, so please don't make us ask you to leave. Be kind and unselfish - don't spam.
SPAMMING IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED
