I am a multipublished author and an experienced editor. I love working with authors on polishing their existing manuscripts, or seeing a project through from inception to completion. I work with fiction and memoir writers, and my favorite genres are historical fiction, contemporary fiction, literary fiction, women’s fiction, family saga, and memoir.
There are different kinds of editing services you might want for your manuscript. If you’ve got a completed manuscript and don’t know where to start on revising, you’d probably want developmental editing or line editing.
If you’ve got a fairly polished manuscript that’s been through beta readers and rounds of revisions, and you just want to make sure you’ve caught mistakes and inconsistencies, then you’re probably looking for copy editing.
If you’re really unsure what stage you’re at and what kind of help you need, a manuscript evaluation is a great place to start.
Working with an editor is a very personal decision. Not everyone is right for every project. I wouldn’t be the right editor for science fiction or horror, for instance.
That’s why I offer a free 10-page (12pt Times New Roman, double-spaced—about 3,000 words) sample edit. Use the form below to contact me if you’d like to try me out!
