Natalie Wright, Author

Content Development & Editing Service by an Award-Winning Author

Natalie Wright is an award-winning author of young adult and adult fantasy and science fiction. Seeing the need for authors to get honest, affordable feedback on their manuscripts, she began offering her content development services. Former clients have garnered publishing contracts on novels that Natalie helped develop. Would you like to be next?

Whether you plan to pursue a publishing contract or intend to self-publish, why not have a second set of eyes look your work over?

Endorsements for Natalie Wright's "Second Eyes" Editing Service:

"I was fortunate enough to have Natalie edit my novel. She has terrific insight into character and plot development. She was extremely thorough and has taken my novel to the next level. She is professional and committed to the craft of writing. I would highly recommend Natalie's services." - M. Conlon

"Natalie Wright has this wonderful talent: she understands what I’m trying to achieve with my novels and my style, but at the same time she confronts me with the faults in my writing. Natalie combines sympathy for what I’m trying to achieve with a tough editorial approach. I was also amazed at the hard work she delivered for the fee. My next novel will be better because of her work (and mine, as a result…), no doubt about it." - M.H. Vessuer


Read on for more detail about my services. If you'd like to try it before you buy it, I will provide a complimentary sample content edit of the first five pages of your manuscript before you purchase the full service. Just send me an email at NatalieWrightAuthor (at) gmail (dot) com to make arrangements for your free sample edit.

Assistance with Content Development at an Affordable Price

Before you query your manuscript or hit the upload button to self-publish, run your manuscript by a second set of writer/reader eyeballs. Even if you're in a critique group, you'll likely get a different sort of feedback from a paid content editor.

I offer what I call "Second Eyes" Content Development & Editing at an affordable price. What I offer is a bit unique so allow me to explain what I mean by my "Second Eyes" service.

Here's what you'll get:

1. Inline comments throughout your Word document. This is a detailed critique provided for the entire manuscript. I will point out both positive and negative items that I see as I read the story. My comments will be focused on my reader reactions to your story but with the insight of a writer. Does the beginning pull me in? Are there places where the story drags? Is the main character off putting? Inconsistencies? Plot problems? Vague language? Not enough description? Too much description?

I will also point out the places where I'm a happy reader, delighted by your language or moved by your prose. After all, it's important for every writer to learn not only what needs improvement but also what they've done right.

Consider this a mini content edit tailored to help you develop your content at the middle stage of the project. My services are best suited for that time after you've done what you can but before you spend multiple hundreds or even thousands of dollars on a more thorough content edit.

2. I'm happy to answer specific questions that you have. Usually by the end of my inline comments all writer questions have been answered. But if you have a specific problem or concern, feel free to send your questions to me along with your manuscript.

3. A brief email note summarizing my thoughts on your project. This will be a condensed version of the whole manuscript edit.

What you will NOT get:

A line or copy edit. If you make the same grammatical or punctuation mistake repeatedly, I will point it out, but this is not a line edit. I am not a grammarian. A "Second Eyes" edit is for the big picture, not the fine detail.

What kind of manuscripts will you read?

I will accept most types of FICTION manuscripts, but will not accept the following: Erotica; anything with child sexual abuse, rape, child or animal abuse or cruelty; anything over 200,000 words long.

How much does it cost?

Up to 75,000 words:           $150
75,000 to 100,000 words:   $175
100,000 to 150,000 words: $225
150,000 to 200,000 words: $250

*Discounts are given if you want a second read of a manuscript that I previously edited.

How do I get started and hire you for a "Second Eyes" edit of my manuscript?

Simply e-mail me a note to NatalieWrightAuthor (at) gmail (dot) com. Let me know the word count, genre and a brief description of the book (think back cover blurb). If you have a time frame in which you need the work done, please let me know that as well. DO NOT SEND ME YOUR MANUSCRIPT without discussing with me first.

**IMPORTANT NOTE: If you would like to take me up on the offer for a free 5 page sample edit, let me know that in your first email.

Are you ready to kick your manuscript up a notch? I look forward to being your "Second Eyes."
