Editing isn’t one size fits all. Coaching is a good way to tailor exactly the kind of editing that works for you. It’s a very flexible service that can be useful in several scenarios.
Coaching can be applied to your whole manuscript, like an assessment of your outline, unfinished draft or very early draft, or to investigate why an agent has rejected your manuscript, or why your published manuscript is getting poor reviews.
You can also use it to work on a particular part of your manuscript, like your opening chapters, or a low paced section.
It’s also a good option if you’d like to apply a deep focus to a particular concern, like head-hopping, show don’t tell, or a particularly unwieldy subplot or character.
Coaching is a supplement to a developmental edit, not a replacement, but it can still be a good way to get the most out of a very tight budget. Like a beta read, but from a professional editor who will include helpful editorial advice.
If this is your very first edit, or you’re a seasoned author battling author overwhelm, coaching can also be a good introduction to receiving feedback and learning how to get the most out of it.
