Freelance Services

When my schedule allows, I also freelance. I do developmental editing for novels and short fiction.

Developmental Editing

£50/5 pages/hour

With developmental editing, I’ll help you…develop your manuscript. From whatever stage you send it in. If you feel like you’re at an impasse, you can’t figure out what’s going on with your pacing or your characters or your structure–I can help you with that and more. Developmental editing is the big picture stuff. Email me if you’d like to talk more.

Cherae leaves thoughtful comments that highlight the strength of a work while also adding questions to help the writer smooth out rough patches. A fantastic teacher, a patient editor, and a writer full of excellent craft recommendations for further improvement.

Cherae’s work as a developmental editor is incisive and enormously beneficial. She saw to the heart of what I wished to accomplish and pointed to both the places I succeeded and the places I fell short. I particularly benefited from her comments on character development and used them to flesh out my disaster queers even more. Her feedback on my novel draft was crucial to the next revision stage, with which I successfully queried and signed with an agent. And of course, her affinity for powerful sword lesbians aligned with my work perfectly. I feel extremely lucky and grateful for her guidance!
