In order to reach their full editorial potential, non-fiction writers, autobiographical writers and creative writers need more than just a summary of what they did wrong in their manuscripts.
They need constructive feedback, complete with praise for what they've already covered spectacularly, insights on what they can strengthen, and questions about areas that might need clarification.
That's the genuine writing edge you get with Innovative Editing – so much more than some close-minded proofreader who only wants to take your money to race through your manuscript and type up a quick summary.
Here, you get a professional manuscript editor who wants to see you succeed.
That's why Innovative Editing offers three different complimentary resources:
The Genuine Writer: a free weekly e-letter that touches on everything creative writers need to know, from starting a story to coming up with clever endings, and editing a draft to marketing your published book. Just click here to get the genuine scoop.
A free 25-minute edit for all prospective clients: Before you sign up with me, I want to make sure I'm a good fit for both you and your budget. That's why I'm more than happy to give you a no-strings-attached 25-minute editorial analysis into your manuscript, which you get to keep no matter what.
A free summary for all paying clients: Innovative Editing works hard to build you up both on and off the clock. After all the pages are read and the track changes are made, paying clients can still get a detailed editorial summary of their manuscript at request that's bound to encourage and inspire them in their publishing goals.

"Jeannette DiLouie is the best editor an aspiring writer could want. Her insights into text, understanding of the publishing world, and willingness to listen, support and provide constructive criticism have taken my writing to a new level.
