I get it.

Authoring prose can be a daunting job. Whether you're plagued by writer's block or too close to a rough draft you've self-edited for the umpteenth time, it's hard to determine what the next best step is. 

Self-publishing is another beast entirely. You've put your heart, time, and money into your dream, hoping all those hours of writingthe late nights, the coffee dinners, the existential staring at your laptop screenwill pay off. Is someone actually going to read this? Will they like it?

Professional editing can enhance your manuscript's claritya small but mighty word that allows your vision to go from draft to publication-ready. Developmental editing, for example, helps clarify plot and characterization, while line editing and copyediting clarify voice and meaning.

 

You may be in the early stages of writing, or you may already be researching cover designers and just need a final pair of eyes to do some manuscript cleanup. There's no one-size-fits-all edit, which is why I provide you with personalized options to make sure we get your book to exactly where you want it.

 

My editorial goal isn't to take out my red pen of death, mark up your text, and send it back to you; I want to guide you through my editorial decisions and provide you with resources so you leave with the tools to be the best writer you can be.​​
