Being a published author and having worked closely with a publishing house as their Editor-In-Chief, provides me with unique skills and great insight which helps in providing the following literary services.
I have recently started coaching new and aspiring writers to help them understand Creative Writing better and to learn Novel Writing basics.
Manuscript Critique is a thorough chapter-by-chapter evaluation of your manuscript for all the elements and pointing out any errors the manuscript may have including a marketing side report.
Online Writing Consultation
Online Writing Consultation can be availed for one of the following three options: Discussion of your writing project, getting feedback for your write-ups or learning a fiction writing topic.
A writing consultation session is of 1 hour can be booked for a maximum of 2 hours at a time depending upon my availability.
I provide all kinds of Editing – Substantive Editing, Developmental Editing, Structural Editing, Copy Editing, Line Editing, etc. The editing will depend upon the quality of your writing.
Proofreading and Betareading
Proofreading focuses on the correction of all superficial errors such as spelling, grammar, syntax, punctuation, and formatting, etc.
Betareading entails reading your manuscript from a ‘reader’s perspective’ and providing you feedback accordingly.
Betareading is done before editing, and proofreading is done afterwards.

Her critique report bristled with professional knowledge and ideas and left no doubt about the hard work she’s put into it. She’s figured out the main issues of my story and provided so many good suggestions that now I feel like I owe her more than what I paid for her service.– Rosalie R C Masch
