Polish your work before submitting it!
Your book has been proof-read and critiqued, but you want it to be the very best you can make it, before submitting it to an editor or agent. Some editors stop reading a submission at the first error they find.
Helen will check your spelling and grammar, point of view, consistency and choreography. She will advise you about what needs tidying, tightening or correcting.
Fiction writing is a very tough, competitive world. Give yourself an edge toward success by having Helen edit your book. Rates on application.
