I help amazing writers refine their story so they can share it with the world.
In other words, I help transform your chaotic and perhaps even messy composition of passion and brilliance into an error-free work of art!Contact me about editing your book »
I work with writers who are masters at developing compelling stories, creating characters that readers connect with emotionally, and constructing plot lines that keep readers engaged. While those writers have the large and vibrant imagination necessary to artfully compose powerful and captivating stories, they tend to quickly get bored with mundane details.
That's where I come in. As you might expect from a professional editor, I will closely inspect your story for typographical errors, but I also offer consulting on story development and style. This obviously helps to improve the professionalism of your work, but it also helps to make your story more engaging, which helps you sell more copies of your book.
Superior Story is a one-man show, which means rather than being passed off to some entry-level editor, you will work directly with me, Blaine Bradshaw. My direct, hands-on, and personal approach makes the editing process efficient and pain-free for you.
When you become a client, we will work closely together throughout the process, with as much (or as little) communication you'd like.
My goal is to help you with the final steps of completing your book, so you can put it, perfected, into the hands of your readers.
This is the part where I'm supposed to brag about how great I am, but that's just not how I operate. Instead, I'll let some of the authors I've worked with share their opinions on my quality, service, and professionalism.
Blaine was excellent, very patient, and answered all my questions with wonderful explanations and examples. He made sure I understood something when I didn’t get it right away. I like how he waited for me to finish typing and read what I typed, so I felt like he was really paying attention. I feel more confident in the progression of my story, and it’s all thanks to him. Thank you so much!
I asked Blaine at Superior Story to revise an article that my company was submitting to a local publication. He expertly handled our request by helping us deliver our mission statement and available services clearly. His attention to our goals and adherence to the magazine’s guidelines made our article a big success. Using Superior Story gave my small business a professional sound and feel.
Blaine gave me feedback on the first half of my novel. His feedback was honest and detailed, without coming across negative or belittling. In fact, his critique was so encouraging that I felt excited about finishing the novel and editing based on his suggestions. I couldn’t recommend him enough!
Blaine of Superior Story read the first 20,000 words of my fantasy manuscript, and I must say, that If you want an honest critique on your story and style so your voice shines, and the story captivates your audience, Blaine can help you get there. I highly recommend him and plan to use him again!
I have been captivated by stories all my life. Whether it be on screen, in books, or in graphic novels, I enjoy all mediums of storytelling. When I returned from Afghanistan and began submitting my own work to editing firms, I found that they were impersonal, automated, and wanted my story to fit their style. That prompted me to launch Superior Story, where I could provide a more personal editing experience that caters to authors.
