We are happy to edit works of fiction – we can improve the flow of the text, handling of direct speech, punctuation, sentence construction etc and sort out any problems with narrative order, repetition, contradiction or exposition (telling the story in the right way). We can also make suggestions about inconsistencies or plot devices that don’t work well or are not credible. However, we cannot turn a fundamentally poor novel into a good one. If the plot does not work or the characters are not properly developed or differentiated, if the story does not make the reader want to turn the page to find out what happened next, we would advise you not to have your work edited until you have addressed these problems.
