That writers work alone is a myth. I’m here to help you reach your writing goals. I’ve edited everything from gubernatorial proclamations to YA novels. Are you just starting out and need a sounding board? Have a draft that needs polish? Whatever it may be, I offer affordable, high-quality help to get the job done right. I’m reliable, talented, and will deliver results that delight you and your audience.
Package #1: Developmental Editing
I provide story-building insight chapter-by-chapter and give you a multi-page analysis on characters, plot, pacing, voice, genre, and more along with two in person or virtual meetings.
Package #2: Line Editing
Ideal for writers who have already completed a developmental edit. I’ll examine the manuscript on a sentence level, leaving suggestions for word choice, syntax, and tone to enhance the your writing style and the manuscript’s effectiveness. At this point, all bigger changes (plot, character arc, setting, etc) have been decided.
- I use Track Changes via Microsoft Word or Google Doc (your preference)
- I use American English.
- I use the Chicago Manual of Style.
Package #3: Query Revision & Toolbox
Are you ready to pitch a novel to a literary agent? We’ll go over your query opening, the four elements of the query letter, comps, and personalization. My query tools has grabbed the attention of many agents—they’ve requested partials and fulls from my clients.
Package #4: Beta Reading
Do you just need someone to read your novel before you send it out to agents? This service is ideal for you. I have a master’s degree in literature and creative writing, and I know what agents are looking for.
I want to know all about your dear writing projects.
