From a Beast of a manuscript to the Belle of books.

What Kind of Help Are You Looking For?

You have finally finished the umpteenth draft of your novel and are eager to have it published and on the shelves. It’s time to start the editing phase, but you have looked at those words for so long, it feels like the biggest task in the world. Perhaps you feel dispirited at the thought of starting on this process and keep pushing it forward. At Spirit Editorial, we will help you polish that manuscript to its very best version.

DEVELOPMENTAL EDITING 

This type of editing focuses on the overall picture of plot, structure, pacing, consistency, tension, characterization, narrative style and so on.

MANUSCRIPT ASSESSMENT

Spirit Editorial offers you chapter-by-chapter feedback on what works, what doesn't work, an analysis of key characters, as well as feedback on the story as a whole. Spelling or grammar won't be fixed, but repetitive issues will be mentioned.

COPY/LINE EDITING

Line editing focuses on rearranging words and sentences to create a smooth read. Copy editing focuses on grammar, spelling, etc. At Spirit Editorial we offer both services in one package.

INITIAL STORY CRITIQUE

Spirit Editorial assesses the premise and the first 25 pages of your story as well as craftmanship. We will make suggestions to improve those first 25 pages to draw in your reader.

PROOFREADING

The final check for typos, missing words, repeated words, spacing, and formatting. This is the last step before publishing.

If you're not sure which of these services apply to you, feel free to contact us. Together we will look what is most beneficial for you.

I can highly recommend Kelly to anyone looking for a professional, well qualified and perceptive editor who is also friendly, approachable and always willing to listen.

About The Editor

The English language has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. In 2014, I graduated with a BA in education specialized in the English language, and I've been teaching English as a foreign language ever since.

In 2018, I started on my own writing journey and self-published my first novel in the summer of 2019. What really inspired me, however, was helping other authors on their journey, help polish their work until it shone and was ready for publication.

I opened Spirit Editorial in 2020 with two things in mind; to use my passion for the English language to help indie-authors publish the best version of their book and to make it affordable for everyone.
