Editorial Critiques

Editorial critiques help authors improve their writing skills. Critiques examine a book or manuscript, focusing on themes, symbolism, character development, flow, plot holes, and the like.  Book reviews tend to focus more on a reader’s opinion.  Melina writes a combination of both.

People don’t like to be told when they’ve made a mistake. However, constructive criticism can help writers grow.  The feedback can be used to correct any editing errors in the manuscript or to completely rewrite the manuscript.

I provide editorial critiques to self-published authors and traditionally published authors at the start of their careers.

What You Can Expect if You Work with Melina:

  • Skill: I have experience taking complex information and breaking it down for a general audience as well as conducting research and interviews. Whether you need a conversational tone or a professional one, I can meet your specifications.
  • Professionalism: I'm a motivated, self-starter with a keen attention to detail and a desire to learn new skills.
  • Personalized attention: I listen to your project needs and incorporate your feedback. I provide professional advice and guidance as needed to help you reach your writing goals.
  • Promptness: I have never missed a deadline.
  • Honesty: If I cannot provide you with the highest quality prose, I will not take the job.
A highly skilled writer and editor, Melina is one of the most professional people I have ever worked with. This is very important to me, as in the past, I have worked with people who seldom responded to my questions and emails. With Melina, expect a timely response as well as wonderful advice and guidance. To have such a positive, kindhearted, hardworking person on your team is an absolute must. Melina takes your writing, and molds it delicately with constructive criticism, as well as highlighting strengths - as a writer this is very rare to find. You feel as though you have someone motivating you and helping you grow while editing your work - she is someone who wants the best for you.
