Editing Services & Bundles

The Clever Clique combines a passion for the romance genre, years of professional editing experience, and an extensive knowledge of how to use AI ethically (and efficiently) to edit fiction to provide indie romance authors with book editing bundles, saving them time and money without sacrificing quality. And isn't that the kind of happy ending we all want? 

*Please Note: Developmental editing is always completed, with client revisions, before any line or copy editing begins. Any bundle service is completed in order over a longer period of time than an "a la carte" edit. If ANY editor says they can complete developmental editing and copy editing in the same pass, that's a red flag!
