Book MD Editing

Book MD Editing offers a range of fiction editing services, including:

  • Beta reading and manuscript evaluation
  • Developmental editing (with light copyediting for consistency and clarity)
  • Second-pass review of developmental edits
  • Full copyediting
  • Query package review: query letter, first pages, pitch, and/or synopsis critiques, separately or in a package
  • Book coaching

I’m experienced with romance, young adult (YA), women’s fiction, and speculative fiction. I’m a member of both the Professional Editors Network (PEN) and the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA), and my rates are consistent with EFA’s guidelines. My strengths as an editor are:

  • Finding inconsistencies and offering potential resolutions
  • Tracking your story’s timeline and character arcs
  • Tying up plot loopholes
  • Helping your manuscript conform with genre expectations
  • Identifying pacing and structure issues

Let me know if you are interested in working with me on your manuscript. Miranda Darrow at Book MD Editing
