I am a professional editor and author. I have worked in multiple genres with authors at all levels from novice to NYT Bestsellers.
Story is my passion and I want to share it with you. I will help you transform your manuscript into a novel that will engage readers and be commercially viable. My insight and expertise of storytelling and the psychology of why we read has allowed me to assist authors of all levels to improve their craft. From students to clients I give everything I have to make the passion in the story stand out and connect with the reader.
But don't take my word for it:
"Clark helped hone my story with incisive questions and suggestions for improvement. It was fantastic to have input at this early stage on a new series, especially as I am usually a discovery writer."
-J.F.Penn, New York Times and USA Today bestselling thriller author
"Clark Chamberlain KNOWS story and his work PROVES it. He tells you exactly how to reach into a reader’s heart so that they want to tear through your book and get to the next one.
We had "hire a developmental editor" as a sub-item of our 2016 goals. Clark is fantastic, in case you don't yet know him. We didn't hire Clark as an "editor," we brought him on board as a Story Engineer.
Clark dives deep into story structure, developmental editing, and the story planning that will help working authors go from good to great or from great to unforgettable.'
-Sean Platt, author Invasion and Writer Dad
"I didn’t trust Clark with his smooth words and dashing good looks so I hired him first as an alpha reader. It was a test. He was meant to fail.
Instead he came back with fantastic insight into a few of the characters and offered a perspective that my other alpha readers hadn’t picked up on.
If you want an editor who can respect your original voice as an author and offer incredible feedback for story, then Clark is who you should go with!"
–Scott King, author The 5 Day Novel and Ameriguns
"When I read Clark Chamberlain's bio and studied his training material for authors, I knew he was my first choice for doing a detailed edit of my novel. My faith in his background and abilities was not misplaced. Clark gave me several excellent ideas for improving the story. I have taken all of his advice and I'm absolutely convinced that I have a better book as a result."
Daren Falter, Author Tommy's Book
