Editing Services

Hello there! Thanks for checking out this page. I’m glad you’re considering to hire me as your editor.

First of all, I love stories. Remove the concept of stories from my code and this cyborg might start malfunctioning. Stories define my life. I spend most of my time on stories. Either I’m editing, reading for anthologies, magazines and publishers, or working on my own stories.

I’m the Editor-In-Chief at The Great Void, a publishing house dedicated in publishing the best kinds of fiction from upcoming and established writers from around the globe in their anthologies of various genres. Dastaan World Magazine, a company that showcases excellent stories and poems, brilliant articles and amazing artwork from authors and artists all over the world, has appointed me as their Editor-In-Chief. I read and review submissions for one of the best pro-paying, hope-punk magazines of today’s market, DreamForge Magazine. This year, I’ve edited five manuscripts and am looking forward to work on the next set. At a time, I never edit more than two manuscripts. This ensures total dedication to your work. Therefore, the number of manuscripts I edit per year is low, but I bet the quality is top-notch. You can see the reviews at the bottom of this page.

If you’re interested in hiring me to edit your novel, please send me an email with the following:

  • Synopsis (can be rough, but please include all significant events)
  • Any three consecutive chapters except the first three.
In your cover letter, please write a little about yourself and your book. Don’t forget to mention the genre and the word count of your story. Please note that I’m not interested in editing religious or political novels.

I also edit short stories (minimum word-count: 500 words). Please send me the following:

  • Synopsis (can be rough)
  • First three pages.
In your cover letter, please write a little about yourself. Don’t forget to mention the genre and the word count of your story. (Please note that I offer free editing sample for short stories only if the word count is large)

Once I receive your email, I will reply as soon as possible (mostly within 24 hours). If the story can be improved, I will make you an offer. My rates are cheap: 1.8-2.3 cents per word, according to the amount of work needed (if this is out of your budget, still feel free to contact me. We’ll see if we can work out something). I can state the exact amount only after going through your work. Payment plans are available (I’m not very strict about payments, but once we decide a plan, please follow it.) I will also send you a free editing sample (up to 2000 words for novels and novellas, up to 1000 words for short stories and novelettes). You can evaluate my skills based on it. My editing services include both types of editing: developmental editing and copyediting (or line editing). My clients also get early access to any documents I write on writing-related subjects. These include checklists, presentations, articles, etc. Generally editors are not required to explain every correction they make. But I want to help my clients to the best of my ability. I will answer any question you have. If you hire me, I’ll definitely help you become a better writer.

Sounds like a good deal? Please send me an email at adityadeshmukhwrites@gmail.com



“Excellent editor who has a fine grasp of his craft. Picks out the minutest of inconsistencies in a story like a microscope.”

“Aditya Deshmukh is one of the best editors I have had the pleasure to work with. Not only does he turn stories around with his insightful editing and suggestions, but he also pushes your writer skills beyond creativity. His feedback is precise and specific, and has helped me carry my narrative to a whole new level.

I have tried a few editors before working with Aditya, and I can fairly say that he is top-flight. I recommend his services to literally every writer; if not for the unparalleled quality of his editing, then surely for his friendliness and heartfelt affection for the art of writing.”

Tariq Gharra

“Aditya is a remarkable editor who I treat as a minor deity. Aditya’s attention to detail is superb. I have worked with other editors, and his work is top notch. He may not like me to say this truth, but he is a great champion of my writing. I always learn something new from his feedback. I would recommend his services to any beginning or professional writer.” Likewise, you will fall in love with his work.
