Christine is an amazing editor and mentor. I hired her a couple years ago to help me edit and improve my first novel and it was a true pleasure working with her. She was insightful, supportive and honest with her feedback - she helped me improve my writing, plot, characters and everything in between. On top of that, she was reliable, organized and wonderful to work with in such an intimate setting (because let's be real - writing is something we all hold close to our hearts). I cannot recommend Christine enough and I know that everyone she helps will be better as a result!
Getting feedback on my first manuscript from a skillful, published writer is priceless. Christine’s provided me with detailed critique that employs literary strategy in a thoughtful way. I’m grateful to have worked with her, it has taken my writing beyond previous imagination.
The moment I connected with Christine Meade over Zoom for a consultation, I knew she was the right editor for me. We totally clicked, and her developmental edit on my YA manuscript was incredible. She 100% saw my vision for the book, and her edits and notes felt like missing pieces to the puzzle. She understood my voice, what I was trying to say, and how to get my book in fighting shape for querying agents. I'm eternally grateful for her help as a published author herself, and I'd point every writer friend her way.
Christine Meade mentored me across two stages while I completed my young adult mystery novel. During drafting, she provided large-scale structural and developmental edits, deftly teasing out areas where character motivation, plot structure, or pacing needed work. Once I had a completed novel, she provided word-, sentence-, and paragraph-level edits, scouring my text for trouble spots, where words could be trimmed and exposition tightened. Christine’s comments are always incisive and never unkind. She has the ability to see where a small change might make a huge impact on the story. Her edits helped me draw out the story I was truly trying to tell from the jumble of words of my first draft.
Working with Christine was such an impactful experience. When I met Christine, my now-published book was only a journal entry and she was able to help me throughout the writing process turn that journal entry into a cohesive story. Her feedback was prompt, unique to my individual writing style, and in moments of doubt and uncertainty, she was there motivating me to keep writing. Christine is such an amazing writing coach and editor and I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her!
