For Fiction Writers
At Axiel, we believe that anyone can write a story. Whether it's a quick flash fiction piece or the next epic adventure novel, we can help you boost your natural story-telling. Our expert in-house team has pieced together a full break down of services that will guide and aid you, from the initial concept to the final word.
Whether you require just one of the services we offer below or wish to go through the process from start to finish, Axiel is here to help.
Start by filling out the Sign Up form under the service that you'd like. After we recieve your project information, we will get in touch and set up a consultation with you. From there, we will talk about the process, strategize a game plan, and calculate pricing based on your unique project. As an added bonus, we also offer a sample of our work on your first chapter (up to 5,000 words) so you can feel confident that you're moving forward with the right team. You can write a story and, with Axiel on your team, you will.
We all have that tentative first step into writing. We formulate an idea, a story, or a character, and we bask in the excitement of a fresh concept. The sense of creation is a powerful one, as it has the potential to build upon itself, and yet it is surprisingly fragile in its early stages. Putting pen to paper and growing that concept into something larger can be time-consuming and full of roadblocks, but it doesn't need to be!
Submit your story and character concepts to the Axiel team. We'll use our collective knowledge and experience to assess the idea in a fair and encouraging manner. We'll look at your pitch with an eye for potential.
With Pitch, you'll receive a creative summary of several pages with detailed feedback on your story concept — delivered to your Inbox in just three days! Click the button below to get started and submit a concept idea to our expert team!

The early stages of writing a story are the most important. Fledgling ideas can be guided by enthusiasm or they can be misdirected by opinion, and an experienced eye can often be the key in figuring out what is going wrong with your manuscript, and what is going right. If you’ve been frequently rejected by agents and publishers, or if you just want to make sure that you’re in tip-top shape before moving forward, then try Review.
You’ll receive an Editorial Summary that breaks down the elements of your work into its strongest areas and its best opportunities for improvement. Rather than build your efforts on an untested structure, use the benefits of our expertise and test the foundation of your story, characters, and writing!
Review gives you an encouraging and constructive analytical breakdown of your work and is delivered within 4 weeks of submittance.

Once you have the foundations of your literary castle, you need some bricks and mortar! Prose can be a wonderfully tricky beast to master, but when you find your own style and your own voice, it can take on a wonderful life of its own! If you're looking for guidance to enhance and refine your language and prose, then Improve may be the service for you!
Instead of offering guidance on the narrative structure or characters of your story, Improve looks intensely at the words on the page. Submit your writing to us today for an line-by-line analysis of your in-story prose.

Copyediting and Final Proofread
There is nothing quite like the feeling of completing a piece of fiction and sitting back with a proud sense of fulfilment. These characters, this story, this entire fictional world would not have existed without your efforts! So... where do you wish to take it now? Whether you’re submitting your work to agents or publishing independently, your manuscript should be in the best shape possible, and that’s what you’ll get with Polish.
No matter your experience as a writer, assessing your own work is an impossibility. The brain is a clever thing and reads what you intended to write, rather than what you actually wrote. Impeccable self-correction is challenging, which is why proofreaders and copyeditors exist. Axiel offers experienced editors and proofreaders to put your manuscript under the microscope before it is sent off to its next destination, whether that's an agent or a reader. Just click the button below for your story’s final Polish.

It's done! It's finished! The beast has been tamed! So... now what? If you're wanting to send your work to publishers or agents, then you need a query letter. If you’re unsure how to go about writing one, you may be interested in our Query service! Axiel's experience in publishing and novel promotion is soon to combine into this highly requested service, where we will be offering custom letters written on your behalf by one of our experienced ghostwriters. Or, if you’d prefer guidance and aid to write one yourself, our editors have got your back!
This special feature will be available in 2021!
