Genre: Young Adult
For many manuscripts I edit, I aim to provide both copyediting and developmental editing all in one read, to keep costs down for the author. I am usually able to do that for YA books since the plots are simpler than novels. Most of my writing involves young characters and heightened emotions, and thus I typically resonate strongly with the YA books I edit.
“I was very pleased with David’s editing work on Hard Crush. He was easy to work with, answered all of my questions, and provided a wealth of advice as to how I could structurally improve several sections of the book, including the beginning and ending. He really made my book shine, and his work was instrumental in getting it sold quickly to a publisher. I highly recommend him for manuscript editing.”
