Editing - Start to Finish Agency

Editing Services

Get your book to the finish line!

You're not just getting a bunch of proofreaders. We provide an objective and experienced eye to tighten up pacing, get rid of flabby text, and provide clear guidance on polishing your voice while preserving your unique style.

We understand how much your manuscript means to you, and we want to see it shine!


We’ll take an in-depth look at your manuscript and edit it systematically to improve tone, language, and style along with grammar. We’ll flag any problems and offer clear, workable solutions for issues including structure, plot, dialogue, voice, and character development. This service includes an initial editorial memo.


This is especially helpful to new writers whose manuscripts need a great deal of attention. We’ll provide you with a thorough deconstruction and analysis of your story, along with specific writing exercises and reading recommendations to reach your manuscript goal. You’ll write revisions under our close guidance, including regular video or voice calls to discuss any concerns or challenges. This service also includes an initial editorial memo, line editing, and proofreading.

Thank you very much to Doretta... it was extremely helpful and exceeded my expectations! I am very grateful for the insightful comments that Doretta made for me, and I especially appreciate the fact that she went beyond her service and left comments on my entire submission. Doretta did a fantastic job, truly.

I never thought the [developmental editing] process would be so long and challenging, and I have a newfound respect for the work of writing now. Thank you so much, Maloy. I really appreciate you. I wouldn’t have been able to do this without your help and guidance.
