Editors at Pandamoon review the work of writers in various fiction realms, focusing on the craft and the literary art of the book. While the Pandamoon substantive editor focuses on the core intentions and goals of the book, he/she will offer specific suggestions for improving the underlying premise, the story, tension, character development, use of dialogue, and sensory description. Narrative voice, pacing, style, and language will be analyzed and fine-tuned by the substantive editor. Upon completion of the developmental review, the substantive editor will create an editorial letter and a style guide for each book.
