Developmental Fiction

Hey there!

I'm Karen, a specialist developmental fiction editor

I specialise in developmental editing and manuscript critiques. I believe an edit should address the particular issues in a manuscript and develop the author’s skills to a whole new level.


“ When you write a book, you spend day after day scanning and identifying the trees. When you’re done, you have to step back and look at the forest" ~ Stephen King

How we can work together

Opening Chapters

The opening chapters of your novel are your chance to grab a reader or agent’s attention. I offer a standard 10,000 word package.

Manuscript Critique

Get a detailed report on your entire novel. My manuscript critique package consists of an editorial report with actionable advice.

Developmental Edit

Dig deep into your manuscript with a full developmental edit, complete with track commenting and an editorial report. Great for those after the most detailed feedback

Ready to get some practical and actionable feedback from a professional?

Whether you’re an indie author or someone intending to submit to an agent, you need a pair of fresh eyes on your manuscript. You’re looking for more than a beta read – you want detailed and honest feedback that takes you seriously as a professional. I’ll analyse your novel, offering insights, suggestions and a practical course of action for you to follow.
