Below are the services I offer to authors who are querying or who hope to begin doing so in the future. If you're looking for something in particular that isn't on the list, contact me to discuss custom packages.*
Below, you'll find a list of my developmental editing services. With a keen eye for detail, I'll go through your manuscript and help you improve plot, tension, pacing, character development, and more!**
After putting so much time and heart into a project, the last thing you want to do is submit your manuscript to an unsuitable or even predatory agent. In addition to offering editorial services, I can provide reviews of your existing agent lists, and can even help you build a custom list of agents from scratch.***
"Aden is so professional and warm. He was very quick in responding to my request and completed his read-through the same day! The comments he left were both incredibly insightful and encouraging. Aden explained every change he made to my document, and really seemed to understand the core of my story, even with the few pages I sent. I am positive that his input has improved my query package, and I feel more confident in my writing. I highly recommend Aden's editing services!"—Amanda Havill Adgate, horror writer
“Aden’s editorial guidance really helped to take my manuscript revision to the next level. From highly-detailed inline notes to a comprehensive edit letter that covered everything from character development to pacing, Aden’s feedback gave me all the tools I needed to dive into the next revision. I especially appreciated his notes on character development and story arc; it really helped me to refine the overall shape of my story. A true professional with an eye for quality writing, and I would gladly recommend him to anyone seeking the services of a freelance editor.”—Carly Heath, author of The Reckless Kind
