I have been the editor of an independent, literary press publishing fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry for the last 10 years. In that role, I've seen so many good books rejected because of issues that could have been solved with the help of an editor. My freelance book editing service is designed to help new and established authors solve these issues and realize their books' full potentials.
With me as your editor, you get someone who is not only meticulous about grammar and punctuation, sentence structure and tone, character and plot development, but someone who is deeply devoted to the written word and to helping authors see their visions through. I am a writer too, so I also understand the highs and lows of the writing process and can share my techniques for pushing through moments of doubt and blocks. Humor, a friendly partnership, esoteric conversations about writing, take-home exercises, and honest criticism and feedback are all part of the package!
Whether you are interested in self-publishing or are seeking representation, I know both publishing arenas quite well. When your book is ready, I can help you navigate these worlds to find the right fit. I also work with several book designers, so if you are self-pubishing, you may want to take advantage of their talents.
I offer a variety of services: Manuscripts Critiques, Developmental Editing, Copyediting, and Writing Coaching. I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about your book!
