    I Will Edit Your Manuscript!

    Do you have a story you've written that's just waiting to be published? Does it just need that last bit of polish to be ready? I've done manuscript critiquing for the last five years in an online writing group with several published authors, and I also critique and edit several full manuscripts every year. Over time, I've honed my appreciation of the narrative structure, as well as character reactions and worldbuilding. I can point out the weak spots in your manuscript and let it soar to new heights! I work mainly in Science Fiction and Fantasy, but I'm willing to edit any genre. You also get both books, bookmarks, desktop wallpaper, and a new short story!

    Includes:
    • I will critique your manuscript of up to 100,000 words
    • Your name in the acknowledgements
    • Facets of the Nether Paperback (Signed) and eBook
    • Facets of the Nether Bookmark
