by Connie Chenowith of Author Salon _______ Q: What made you guys decide to start a novel editing service ? It's a natural outgrowth of the writer conferences. Writers are always asking for something like this, especially following the New York Pitch Conference . Overall, I've spent many hours helping alums get published, all pro bono, and now I feel it's time to parallel that with another more methodical and goal-defined process. Besides, we can justify far more dedication to any given project over a longer length of time if actual remuneration is involved. CC: That makes sense, of course, but seriously, does the world need another novel editing service? Yes and no. The world does not need another commonplace editorial service. Ours is unique, indefinite in length, customized for each writer, and finally, structured more productively than other novel editing services--the condition we're striving for in terms of methods and final results.
