About Fabled Planet
As a writer of fantasy or science fiction, you are contributing to a human tradition that goes back to ancient times: the vivid imagining of worlds unlike the one we know. This need to portray new, internally consistent worlds creates unique challenges and possibilities for authors in these genres, and our team of specialist editors are here to help you embrace both.
With content to guide you from idea to draft and a range of services to help take you from rewrites to publication, we combine a strong command of story craft with a passion for speculative fiction to arm you with tools and counsel for every step of your writing journey. Welcome, adventurer, to our Fabled Planet.

“I was blown away by the quality of Kahina’s structural report for my novel. Her deep knowledge of fantasy and science fiction shone through, and the level of detail she provided allowed me to tackle the things that were holding the story back and make the plot and characters even richer. Following my revisions, I was delighted to secure representation by a literary agent.”
Specialist fantasy and science fiction editing
Looking for an editor for your fantasy or science fiction novel? We provide specialist editing services for speculative fiction writers, including content editing, line editing, copy-editing, and proofreading. Our editors combine a passion for the genre with a deep knowledge of story craft and a meticulous approach to grammar and consistency.
Content editing is concerned with the substance of your story, including the plot, structure, themes, worldbuilding, characterisation, and overall writing quality. It’s the first stage in the editing process, evaluating your manuscript’s strengths and where it can be improved. Our content editing reports come with comprehensive recommendations on how to tackle any problems we identify.
Line editing improves the style of the prose in your manuscript, helping your story to flow better and making the language more engaging. The editor will go through your manuscript line by line, improving the writing as they go. We often recommend it if a manuscript has a strong story but the writing is inconsistent or needs to be sharpened in order to ensure it reaches its full potential.
COPY-EDITING & PROOFREADING
Copy-editing and proofreading happen after the substantive elements of your story have been refined and settled. Copy-editing involves editing the grammar, punctuation, syntax, and formatting of your manuscript, as well as fixing typos and ensuring consistency and logic. Proofreading is the last stage, involving a final check for typos, grammatical errors, and other mistakes.
“I could never have got where I am without Kahina’s insightful and encouraging critiques. They have been invaluable in helping me to recognise my strengths as a writer, work on the areas that need improvement, and produce stories that I am proud of. I have never come across an editor who so intuitively understands the story I want to tell and invests so much to ensure the outcome is the absolute best it can be.”
If you’re looking for ongoing support while you’re writing your fantasy or science fiction novel, take a look at our coaching services. We currently offer one-to-one coaching.
Our one-to-one coaching service aims to provide you with an ally throughout the novel-writing journey: someone who gets to know the story and the writer and helps to develop both. This is achieved through monthly goal-setting and critique of your work-in-progress, along with weekly check-ins to help you with accountability, find your unique best writing process, and discuss any snags in your story.
