Working with the independent publishing community for over ten years, Novel Needs understands that quality copyediting is as important as a quick turnaround.

Novel Needs will never change your voice, but we will work with you to ensure it is clear for your readers.

We edit all genres of fiction, specializing in romance (all sub-genres) and post-apocalyptic.
