Free book editing!



I love reading and critiquing works. I’m a linguistics student, so naturally I love grammar but I also have a great appreciation for everyone’s styles. I have edited previously - mostly academic papers, but also fiction and poetry. I have also read many of the greats (Hemingway, Tolstoy, Austen, etc.) and thus am familiar with most genres, but love romance, YA, and fantasy the best! Send me over a chapter or two and I’ll get to it within the week. If I think that I would be able to help you out - whether with character or plot development, general grammar, or flow.

No payment! Just a bored university linguistics student.


Hey! If you are interested, you can choose any of my three published works and edit or provide feedback on any chapters at your leisure. :slight_smile:

As I said, I have three:

Rain Drops - A poetry anthology
Song of Melpomene - (My sister’s anthology about tragic Greek women. We share this account)
Without You - A letter written to my depression. It is for a contest entry, so I’d especially love any feedback on this one!

Hey, I just saw this thread and I would be so grateful if you could read my story which is fantasy based.
In the mystic land of Ilerea, filled with creatures of stories and fantasy, Athena Wolfborn a trained assassin, was occasionally hired by King Ragnor Lore to take out his enemies.

Stories of the Forefront Alliance and its defeat were always whispered to young children, so that they knew what would happen if they defied the laws of the land under the rule of the king.

Athena intends to stick to the rules and live life doing what she does best with her family. But she is soon thrown into a world that she believed to be a part of rumors and stories, when Ryder, a werewolf, walks into her life claiming to be her Alliant and his people’s Queen.

Joining the infamous Forefront Alliance will be the least of her worries as she fights to contain her feral side and to keep her secrets buried where they should be, in her past.

Will she be able to handle all the expectations thrown at her, will she able to trust these new people who call themselves her friends?

Or will she succumb to being a puppet of war?

Hey, I would really like for fresh eyes to see my story. Alot of people already told me about some bad grammars in regards to punctuation and tenses.
Here is my story btw

Title: Tale of the Black Dawn Series 1: UNRAVEL

Kristine Mae Cordovan has everything that all the girls would dream to be in her place; the looks, great personality, a lifestyle that speaks of riches and fortune, a supportive and loving family, and awesome and crazy friends. Everything was perfect and she wouldn’t change these for anything.

Then suddenly, the world she thought had gone drastically change as she notice something different in her, the family she loved, the friends that she adored, and all the mysterious dreams and events that take place throughout her life.

Little by little, her perfect world starts to fall apart when fragments of her past memories starts to resurface. Memories that she should’ve not forgotten, should’ve not disregard, and should’ve not denied.


Hey! I would really love someone to edit my new novel ‘Being Butch Green’. I came across a reader who just started editing another one of my books out of the blue and found the help really great.

Hello, there! I would be so grateful and appreciative if you could take a look at my ongoing project, “Silent Echoes.” It is a YA fantasy (albeit it’s pretty dark) but I’m in love with it so far. Hopefully you’ll be able to let me know what you think.
