There is nothing worse than when you publish your book and get poor reviews right away.
It's one thing to get poor reviews over bad grammar, don't get me wrong, that sucks, but when it's a plothole you should have seen and been able to address? Or a missed convention that could have taken your book from a so-so read to one readers revisit time and time again? That bites.
Hi, I'm Marissa Frosch
As an author with a knack for story and reader expectations, I jumped into developmental editing as a way to improve my craft and help others. I started officially working with authors in 2019 but have been helping authors as a friend and colleague since 2011.
As a developmental editor...
My job is to take your story from "doesn't work" to "works" OR from "works" to "this is freaking amazing!". My favorite part of this process is working with motivated individuals who will do whatever it takes to get the best version of their story to their readers. If you're ready to take this step apply now.
I also offer story coaching. This is an extremely competitive program and I only work with those who truly want to be authors. If you think you've got what it takes to work one on one with me and take your story to new heights, Apply below. Note, this is a different form than the regular developmental edit.
