As a freelance editor, I believe that every person has a voice that deserves to be heard.

Do you want to strengthen your novel’s themes, character arcs, and pacing? Do you need a final proofread? Do you need a query critique before you send it to your dream agent? Or maybe you aren’t sure where to start… but want to progress your writing career?

I am here to help!

"Angela Watts is a skilled editor who was able to take my story to the next level. Her feedback was constructive and well thought out. She helped me to take a step back and think about the words on the page. The quick turnaround, fast responses, and her deep understanding of my story made the editing process a breeze. I plan on hiring Watts for my upcoming novels!"

A developmental edit is an in-depth analysis of your novel as a whole.  It is perfect for new authors, or authors looking to take their writing skills to a new level.

For this edit, you receive a 5+ page breakdown of my assessments that discusses the plot, setting, themes, and more.

A line edit assists in sentence structure, info dumping, word choice, reading flow, word/phrase overuse, and also points out any inconsistencies in characterization or plot.

Working with Angela was fantastic. I contracted her for a line edit and her work was exactly what I was looking for to make my manuscript shine. Not only did she do an excellent job at catching pet-phrases and repeated words, but also knew just the right questions to ask in the right places concerning my character's responses and motivations. I would definitely work with her again.

For this package, the basics are listed below, but this is a flexible package and can be adjusted to fit your unique needs!
