Are you in the market for a fantasy editor — a second pair of eyes who can surveil your manuscript for everything from grammar and punctuation to flow, pacing, theme, plot, setting, characterization, dialogue, and the overall magical, otherworldly, and fantastical qualities that readers anticipate?
Look no further! I’d love to collaborate on your book!
One favorite project involved both magical and magicless realms, and a witty, complex protagonist caught in a web of secrets. I was hooked from the start and became a fan while editing the book. That’s the thing about fantasy writers — their imaginations exceed the earthly dimension and take us far, far away into totally new relationships, dynamics, struggles, and victories.
About Misfit’s Rise
A century after the Magi of Earth found sanctuary in an underground Realm, Halfbreeds and other magicless outcasts are exiled back to Earth. As a powerless Fae/Human hybrid, Billie should fit right in. Except, she’s anything but powerless, making her a misfit among misfits. When her powers nearly destroy a human home, she’s given a chance to return. Returning to the Realm has always been Billie’s dream, but the Realm is no Fairy Tale. Despite its claims of acceptance and equality, ancient rivalries between the Realm’s magical species are ripping it apart. Billie manages to land herself in the middle, a dangerous place for an outcast to be. What’s more, the powerful magic that brought her there suddenly vanishes, leaving her vulnerable to those who think a misfit doesn’t belong in the Realm. Staying in the Realm is her only chance to live life as a true Mage, but staying has a high price. Up to and including her life.Amazon listing description
A Fantasy Editor Brings Perspective
Although a fantasy editor can become a fan, that doesn’t mean we lose objectivity. Quite the opposite. The more we admire the premise of a book, the more we want it to succeed. Sometimes we function as beta readers (of sorts), meaning we read and edit while keeping in mind the conventions of English and the unique elements that readers have come to expect from the genre.
Whether the author has created a big, bold, series or a stand-alone novel, hats off to these wordsmiths who remove the constraints of this world and transport us into the unknown.
