Sean Fletcher - Editor

Colleyville, TX, United States

Editor of bestselling sci-fi, fantasy, young adult and middle grade. Passionate about making your book the best it can possibly be.

Overview

I am a developmental editor of award-winning and bestselling science fiction/fantasy, both in the YA and adult genres. I am also a successful self-published author, with numerous works already out, and more being released this year.
For developmental editing I focus in the areas of adult, YA, and middle grade fiction, specializing in the following genres: Sci-Fi, fantasy, thriller, and most areas of contemporary fiction. I assists authors in building multidimensional characters, engaging plots, original voices, and deep themes across all age groups. As an author myself, I understand the needs of authors, both how that applies to creating a successful book, and how to treat authors to help them create the best work they possibly can.

As an author myself I understand how arduous the editing process can be. You've worked hard on your book, and the last thing you need is an editor who tears it to shreds, with no regards to how it feels as an author. I edit with a firm but understanding tone in order to coax the best story possible from your work, and put you on the path to publication, be that self-publishing, or pitching to an agent or editor.
