Welcome to K.Johnson Editorial!
So, you’ve written a novel, and you’re staring at the computer screen wondering what steps are left to take. So far, writing has been defined to you as a solo art, one to be accomplished in a private café corner or from the safety of your own living room. But the numerous options for your book now open before you like a never-ending wormhole of possibilities: self-publishing; agent or no agent; trade bookstores; indie presses; e-book, paperback, hardcover.
All of these, you can accomplish on your own. The research is right at your fingertips. However, even the best writer can’t edit their own work without bias. That comma splice you feel flows so well? The repetition of the word “that” you think no one will notice? The differences between further/farther, then/than, or affect/effect you assumed you knew for certain? Need some help with character development or insight on plot structure? Wondering about the strengths and weaknesses of your prose? How confident are you about grammar and spelling? You might see perfection where the reader sees loose threads.
That’s where I come in. Having an editor comb through your writing for errors and consistency is imperative to a successful work. Outside eyes can catch any grammar slips, factual discrepancies, and plot holes. I aim to give crafting advice that will build a stronger manuscript as well as assist each writer in future projects. You don't just learn how to strengthen this manuscript; you learn to strengthen all your manuscripts.
