Helping your manuscript reach its full potential!
READY FOR EDITING?
Whether you want to self-publish, find literary representation, or secure a publishing contract, you want your manuscript to be the best book it can be. That's where I come in.
ABOUT FREELANCE EDITOR NICOLE ARCH
After working with a variety of publishing houses and literary magazines, I know what makes a manuscript shine. With a Bachelor's in English and Comparative Literature and a Concentration in Writing, Editing, and Digital Publishing, I aim to amplify unique voices in literature with consistency and clarity, helping your manuscript reach its fullest potential.
FICTION EDITING SERVICES
30-MINUTE PHONE CONSULTATION
Struggling with your story concept and need a brainstorming session? I'm always happy to spitball ideas!
If you already have something on paper, I can review up to 2,000 words of material in preparation for our call. An hourlong consultation is also available.
PERFECTING YOUR PITCH
As a former editorial acquisitions member for publishing houses and literary magazines, I'm very familiar with pitching. I'll share my thoughts on your query, including your attention-grabbing "hook," the concept of your "book," and the presentation of your bio or "cook" so your query can stand out.
CONTENT AND LINE EDITING
Also called "substantive editing," the content and line edit service is the most hands-on, time-consuming, transformative option I offer. From the first page of your manuscript to the last, my margin notes and feedback will improve your ability to self-edit and revise, helping you to strengthen your writing for the rest of your writing life.
Want to keep mistakes and typos from slipping through the cracks? I'll be your second pair of eyes, helping ensure your manuscript is as clear, consistent, and error-free as humanly possible.
Interested in a beta read, editorial assessment, or something else entirely? I offer a wide range of services, designed to help you navigate through every stage of the writing and editing process. And if you still can't find what you're looking for, take a look at my customized, "build your own service" offering.
"I had six first chapter sample edits from some top-tier freelancers, some of which were very expensive, and I went with Nicole, because she just blew everyone out of the water. She is truly gifted at this work. If you're serious about publishing your manuscript and having the quality appear as if it was published by one of 'the big five,' she will definitely help you achieve it."
