EditingWrite Better Right Now by Gary Corbin

Writing a novel, a short story, a memoir? Gary can help you get it ready for the editor or agent query or for final publication— or for self-publication. Options include:

    • Intensive manuscript critique— a thorough analysis of your document with recommendations for improving story structure, narrative flow, characterization, voice, and overall writing style. It also includes general observations about writing “tics” that the author can use to sharpen their manuscript.
    • Line-editing—intensive line-by-line edits for creative content, including use of language, writing style, and the structure of your story elements (e.g., how you open and close chapters, scenes, and paragraphs), as well as corrections to obvious errors of spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
    • Copy-editing—corrections to grammar, spelling, punctuation, and adherence to stylistic and publishing conventions (such as the Chicago Style Manual).
    • Proofreading—corrections to grammar, spelling, and punctuation only.

  1. Hi Gary,

    I’m the author of THE ERICKSEN CONNECTION. I”m beginning the process of outlining my second “Mark Ericksen novel.” The first draft should be finished by the end of October. What are your rates for editing services? My novel will be about 50,000-60,000 words. I’m a member of the Willamette Writers and the Northwest Independent Writers Association (NIWA).

  2. Hi Barry,

    I replied directly via email. Thanks for the inquiry!

    Gary
