Editing Services

Writing is a lonely endeavor. But it doesn’t have to be. A good support system is crucial to taking your writing to the next level. An experienced editor can help you achieve your writing goals.

Not sure if your manuscript is ready for submission? Can’t figure out why your queries are not generating results? Getting champagne rejections but no requests for fulls?

This is where I come in. I can help with a variety of projects, at almost any stage of the process.

Let me help you give your work-in-process one last line edit, focus your query letter, or find that missing piece from your finished manuscript.

I also contract with Angelella Editorial and you can learn more about their services here.

Manuscript Assessments

This is a good option if you are preparing to submit your manuscript somewhere and you want a fresh pair of eyes to take a look at your work to make sure that you have what you need to grab the reader’s attention—and keep it—in the crucial first pages and chapters of your story. See more information here.

Novel Review

If you’ve completed your first rough draft (or second or third), and you’re wondering if you’ve nailed your plot, character, setting, voice, etc., this is the option for you. I’ll help you hone in on where to focus your revision energy. See more information here.

Novel Line Edit

This is the nitty gritty of grammar. If you are convinced that your novel is good to go, but you aren’t confident about how to use a semi-colon, whether you have dangling participles, or fear you may have misplaced a modifier or two, this is the option for you. See more information here.

Query & Synopsis Guidance

Your manuscript is ready with a neat little bow on it. But you struggle with the right tone for your query letter and can’t seem to trim your synopsis down to size. What should you leave in? What should you take out? I can help you zero in on what agents and editors are looking for. See more information here.

Picture Book Edit

Whether you have a fiction, non-fiction, or rhyming picture book, every word counts. Make sure you have tight prose, elegant page turns, and outstanding rhyme schemes within your 500-1000 words manuscript. See more information here.
