The Gravity of Existence by Christina Sng

A collection of tiny terrors from Bram Stoker Award winner Christina Sng. The Gravity of Existence is a weight lifted, a monster freed, a princess with sneakers, a spell for a better world. From one of the leading voices in dark verse, this collection delights in the misunderstood, putting a new spin on werewolves, basilisks, sirens, ghosts, aliens, pandemics, fairy tales and myths. Sng gives new voice to classic heroines and the result is terrifying, magical, and fantastic. On sale at Amazon.

In 2021 Bram Stoker Award® winner and 2022 Elgin runner-up Tortured Willows, four Southeast Asian women writers of horror expand on the exploration of otherness begun with the Bram Stoker Award-winning anthology Black Cranes: Tales of Unquiet Women. Like the willow, women have bent and bowed under the expectations and duty heaped upon them. Like the willow, they endure and refuse to break. With exquisite poetry, Christina Sng, Angela Yuriko Smith, Lee Murray, and Geneve Flynn invite you to sit beneath the tortured willow's gravid branches and listen to the uneasy shiver of its leaves. Available from Amazon.

I offer copy editing and proofreading for a final polish and review of your work before it goes to publication.

If you would like a thorough review, I offer revisions editing.

My job is to make your manuscript sing. I'll be looking at flow, style, and readability, and smoothen out any bumps in your writing. While revising to make your language compelling and reworking sentence structure, I am careful to retain your tone and voice.

I'll make suggestions throughout your manuscript and it will always be your choice if you want to accept that change. You are in control of your manuscript.

My Revisions Process

Your manuscript will go through three rounds of revisions with me. This will be a collaborative process that will require your response and input at every stage.

1. The first stage is a read through where I may make initial changes. On your part, you will review those changes and then accept or reject them.

2. In the second stage, I dive deep into each line and propose edits for clarity, consistency, accuracy, and readability, while preserving your unique voice. We will discuss structural issues like reordering chapters for a stronger overall message and ensure your manuscript is cohesive as a whole. You will review each edit and decide if you wish to accept or reject it.

3. The third stage is for you to read your manuscript through your reader's eyes. Is this the experience you want your reader to have? If not, we will revise your manuscript to ensure it is. You have my support and advice throughout this stage. Ask me questions anytime. I will guide you through the process and offer suggestions on structuring and final touch ups.
