Alys Yablon Wylen -- Editing & Writing Services
Writing, Manuscript Evaluation
- Manuscript Evaluation
My experience in the book world allows me to guide you regarding where your book succeeds, and where it does not. I will read (not edit) your text and provide you with a detailed evaluation of your book's style, relevance and organization.
- Developmental Editing
This service is for authors who have begun the writing process but have been unable to complete their books or articles alone. I will help to guide you toward completion, asking key questions and telling you where you need to elaborate and where you've strayed from the path. This is a collaborative project in which I act as your writing coach.
- Content Editing
The most popular option is content editing, which normally involves two or three rounds of editing. I take your completed manuscript and edit it for style, clarity, and flow. I will re-write unclear sentences, provide you with developmental comments and questions where needed, and give it back to you for revision. Once you have made your corrections and revisions, I will edit it once more, making sure that your book is polished into a better final product, suitable for submission at a publishing house or, if the book is already slated for publication, a finished product.
This service is basic proofing of your text for grammar, spelling and consistency.
- Book Reviews
Publications wishing to hire me for reviews of literary non-fiction or novels are welcome to contact me at any time.
Ghostwriting involves taking your ideas (research, life experience, etc.) for a book, and committing them to paper in your voice. I will work with you to create a book that reflects your tone and personality. This includes either face-to-face meetings or phone interviews, so that I can get to know you, how you speak, and how you would write if you were to do so yourself.
