Fiction Services

Revising your own work can be overwhelming! It can be hard to know where to begin or even what to prioritize in service of telling the best story. That's where I can help!

 

Using my deep love of story and years of professional training, I can guide you through the revision process to make sure your reader has an emotional and engaging experience. My goal with every project is to highlight the best in your work and help you make it even more impactful. After working together, you will not only have a clear plan of what to tackle next but will have gained confidence in your skills as a writer.

 

​You can find out more about the types of services I offer below or contact me for a personalized quote! I also offer free sample edits and consultation calls for new clients so you can be sure I'm the right editor for your work.

What I
Offer

Editorial Snapshot

On a tight budget? In this type of critique, I’ll edit the first one to two chapters of your manuscript (up to 5,000 words), offering advice you can apply to your work as a whole.

This is a great way to get professional feedback without committing to a full developmental evaluation.

 

Options include either an editorial letter outlining the work’s overall strengths and weaknesses, or a letter and on-manuscript comments and limited line edits to illustrate my points.

Manuscript Evaluation

This option includes a full two pass read-through of your manuscript, after which I provide a 10–20 page letter exploring the manuscript's strengths and weaknesses, as well as offering suggested fixes for any potential issues.

 

Again, I will focus on plot, characterization, pacing, etc., but in more specific detail, and noting places for revision chapter by chapter.

 

A manuscript evaluation is equivalent to a full developmental edit but without any on-manuscript comments or line edits.

Author Coaching

Is a scene not coming together how you wanted? Is there something off about your plot that you can't quite name?

I offer one-on-one author coaching chats to help you get unstuck!

 

From single scenes to full outlines, I can help you brainstorm your story ideas, offering a fresh set of professional eyes on your work.

Manuscript Assessment

After a thorough read-through of your manuscript, I provide a detailed letter exploring what's working best in the story and outlining areas for revision.

 

Focusing on things like plot, characterization, world building, pacing, and writing structure overall, I will also make specific suggestions to help you in further developing the manuscript.

 

While not as in-depth as a manuscript evaluation, this is a great choice if you are looking for high-level feedback on a budget!

Developmental Edit

A full developmental edit is a more detailed, granular version of a manuscript evaluation.

 

I will do two full passes of your manuscript with on-manuscript comments and limited line edits with track changes to illustrate my suggestions and offer potential fixes.

 

I will also provide a 10–20 page letter exploring the manuscript's strengths and weaknesses, noting places for revision chapter by chapter.

This option provides the most detailed, micro-level kind of feedback.

“Fiction writing is a complex process and no matter how good a writer you are, you need a second pair of eyes to review your work. Aubry not only sees what you’ve put down on paper and helps you get it right—she (very importantly) also sees what you left out. She can ably improve both the content and the structure of a story. Always professional, very approachable, and easy to work with, I recommend Aubry with no reservations.”
