I am a professional Hollywood script reader and book editor. Shaky City is my script reading and book editing business.


SERVICES


STANDARD MOVIE COVERAGE

Standard Coverage is what Hollywood “script readers” like me provide to agencies, production companies, and studios. It summarizes the material and determines its merit and viability as either a movie or TV show. All coverage includes a summary of the plot and a page of comments focusing on plot and character.  

MANUSCRIPT COPY EDITING

Copy-editing corrects basic sentence-level mistakes and addresses stylistic issues to make sure the writing communicates clearly the writer’s vision. Although I will catch as many typos as possible, this is not proofreading. The changes are tracked in a Word document.  

MANUSCRIPT DEVELOPMENTAL EDITING

Developmental editing considers the key narrative structural issues and the writer’s execution of the story. It focuses primarily on character and plot. Along with comments within the manuscript, this service also includes a multiple page editorial report that will outline the issues that need to be addressed in a rewrite. The report can also be tailored to focus on the writer’s specific concerns regarding her manuscript.
