novel needs logoThank you for visiting Novel Needs Editing. You’ve done the hard work writing your novel, now we would like to help you tell the best story possible. Our goal is to polish your manuscript without demolishing your budget.  Two editors carefully analyze every book submitted.

Now that you’ve completed your manuscript it’s time to let us assist you in fine-tuning your book. We will never suggest anything that would change your unique storytelling voice. We use Track Changes to show corrections inline and Comments along the sidebar to ask any questions we may have about word usage or discrepancies in the story. We focus on the minute details and the big picture, keeping in mind the overarching themes within your novel.

Things we look for as we edit your manuscript:pen blot

  • Missing words
  • Grammatical errors and misspellings
  • Flow, tone, and style
  • That you’ve explained yourself well
  • Misused or overused words and phrases
  • Inconsistencies such as character descriptions, plot points, and settings
