My name is Maria Georgiou and I offer professional developmental editing services for romance authors. I specialise in editing contemporary romance, romantic suspense, paranormal romance and YA (Young Adult) romance. ​My goal is to help you improve the big-picture storytelling issues in your manuscript and achieve your writing goals.

I offer two main services: Developmental Editing and Manuscript Critique. I focus on the big-picture storytelling issues in your manuscript:​
plot and structure
point of view
scene vs narrative summary (show vs tell)
and more!
