Why Hire Me For Your Manuscript Editing ?

david madsenAs a novelist and screenwriter, I bring more than a standard editor's toolbox to your project. I know what it's like to be the first one to put the first word on a blank page. I have great respect for that original spark of creation, so I will approach your work as both a writer and an editor.

I've worked closely with editors on my novels and with film and television executives on my scripts; I've lived the process from the inside. My comments, advice and tips are based on real world experience.

Because I've sold both novels and screenplays, I have a solid commercial sense of what works in publishing and in film.

I bring a screenwriter's touch to my novels, which emphasizes clean, forward moving story telling. If you feel you're getting bogged down in your novel, a fresh read with a screenwriter's eye will get you unstuck.

I bring a novelist's sensibility to screenplays: deeper characterizations, more textured scenes, fully realized worlds. If your script needs more meat on its bones, I can help.

I'm not a manuscript editing mill, where you could be passed from one nameless editor to the next, who often respond with conflicting notes. I am not part of a development team, where many readers compete to put their stamp on your project. I offer personalized manuscript editing focused on getting the most out of YOUR story. You'll always know where I'm coming from and where we're going.

I specialize in mysteries, suspense, thrillers and stories with strong narrative writing. If I don't feel that my manuscript editing skills are a good fit for your project, I will be happy to recommend an experienced editor who is right for you.
