Genevieve Clovis editor and owner of Clovis Editorial. Genevieve smiling at the camera.You’ve written a novel and want to take the next step.

First off, congratulations on finishing your novel! You’ve accomplished something truly wonderful. But the work isn’t over yet.

While spending all that time writing and revising, you probably thought about what you want to get out of your novel. Maybe you want to self-publish, publish traditionally, or just clean it up and have a few copies printed for friends and family. These are all admirable goals, and they all have the same next step: editing.

That’s where I come in.

As a specialist fiction editor, I am trained to provide you with critical feedback on your project. A fresh set of eyes and an unbiased opinion will help you discern why certain aspects of your story may not work the way you intended. Suggestions on how to strengthen your story, improve your flow, and round out your characters are some of the ways I can help you ensure your novel is ready to put out in the world.

Next Steps...

If you’re still in the process of writing, that’s cool too! Whether you’re researching editors in advance, or you’re stumped about how to proceed, you’re in the right place. As well as novel editing services, I offer novel coaching.

Are you getting caught up in worldbuilding or character development? Do you need someone to bounce story ideas off? Do you have lots of ideas but lack the focus to string them all together? A writing coach may be exactly what you need.

If you’ve fallen into a plot hole, don’t worry. I’ve got rope and a plan to pull you out.
