Line-by-Line Editing and Rewriting

This thriller about best friends, scientific data, hired guns, and a harrowing race with a past lover to stay alive is the second novel from author Dennis Macaraeg. I helped Dennis with the flow of his narrative and dialog, plus ensuring continuity throughout the novel. Like shooting a movie, novels are not necessarily written in the same order that the chapters appear.  But events and descriptions need to be consistent throughout, so an extra eye on those things is valuable to an author who is writing and rewriting their work over many months.

Bruce has the natural talent to reconstruct difficult-to-read words into a coherent sentence that the reader can truly appreciate. He also has the eye to spot inconsistencies in the narrative that differ from page 10 to page 200.
I’m glad that he is on my team!
